Listen to Others Before Making a Big Purchase

Hooray! It’s exactly one month until Black Friday! Carmelina and I are doing a happy dance that we’ve made it this far and the finish line is in sight! We’re planning something fun for the end of this series, so stay tuned! :)

Today’s tip is to listen to your fellow consumers regarding the deals you’re hunting for. There’s a lot of wisdom and experience within your circle of friends, available to you through a text, phone call, social media, or even over a cup of coffee! See what they’ve bought, if they like it, what they’d do differently if they were to buy it again.

If you’re the trend setter in your social circle, before you spend a lot of money on something, search online for unbiased product reviews and check the FatWallet forums for honest, no-fluff feedback from others.
