Secret 1: Compensation Principle
Although a person can be wise enough in the way he purchases goods, he may sometimes be weak in front of advertising temptations. Sometimes he may hurry to buy something that is not good. Here comes the role of the compensation principle.
If you entered a shop to buy goods with QR 300 as you have planned, then you realized that you bought things with QR 600, feeling regret you will decide to return some goods that you can delay to buy in the near future with an amount of money that equals the difference between your planned amount and the paid amount. Thus you will return the balance to your expenditures.
Secret 2: Avoid Excessive Spending
Our holy religion urges us not to spend excessive money on purchasing and to bring up our children on this. Being reasonable while purchasing contributes to discounting the prices.
Secret 3: Real Need for Goods
Always remember that purchase measurement is our need of goods and not their importance.
Secret 4: Wholesale Food Purchase
Why should you purchase primary materials only on wholesale? When you buy food products, try to buy wholesale raw or primary materials/ingredients that are used in food preparation like salt, sugar, tea and some spices, not the final products like cheese and cream. For example, If you decided to eat some cheese and found no cheese you can eat cream instead. In addition, if you want to cook a meal of rice and chicken and you did not find salt (primary ingredient), it will be difficult to continue cooking the meal without salt.
Why don’t we buy the final products wholesale?
When you shop to buy final products try to buy little amounts as possible as you can, just what you need, this will be useful in buying variety of goods. But if we bought it in wholesale, we will eat it excessively and may be spoiled, or you may try to find space for storage. Also excessive use of it will make you feel bored of it and buy another one or go to restaurants seeking varieties.
