Well it sounds like you really really want it….but remember that nothing is ever a “one time only” kinda thing. If they have a sale now, chances are they will again. Maybe not tomorrow or next week, but at some point, there will be another sale. Plus, there is always the 24/hr availabilty of the internet and its endless “sales”. $150 is a lot of money, but will it put you in the poor house permanently? Probably not. Will your FH get over it once he learns you splurged on something that he probably sees as a one time use thing? In time. We all have our moments and our weaknesses, so if this is yours, you can at least use that excuse until he calms down and learns to accept it.   🙂

Good luck, whatever you decide.

Well in the grand scheme of things $150 isn’t that much.  If you really know that you will use it then it is worth it to buy it while it’s on sale.  

Think of what you will use it for? Make B-day cards, invites, programs?

Then think of how much you’d spend on b-day cards in a year, two years? If you could use it consistently then it might be better to get and save in the future.  How much would you save if you used for invites and programs?

Last idea: buy it now and return it if you change your mind…but at least this way you take advantage of the 20% off.

Wow! Sounds like you really want it.

Here’s some questions to help you think through your decision.

What else could you spend your money on?

What would you do if you didn’t buy it?

Would you be able to resell if you later changed your mind and had buyer’s remorse?

Consider FI’s input.
