It’s a common theme amongst us humans, do you pay your pretty penny for that item of whatever it may be or do you wave goodbye to it and stroll on?
Depending on the predicament it can either be a downer to say no to that piece of clothing you wanted almost more than anything or a tiny victory for choosing fresh fruit over that delicious tub of Rocky Road. What to do, what to do?
We’re breaking down the simple rules we live by here at Duluth Pack – to buy or not to buy?
It can seem much more difficult, painful and cumbersome than we make it seem, but in all honesty, it’s not. We’ve got your backs and want to make sure when purchasing a product, like a Duluth Pack, food item, guilty pleasure or even a house per se that you are making the right move, selection and ultimately the right purchase for you!
1) Why are you buying the product?
This is the first thing to ask yourself before dropping some of your hard earned cash. What is your motive? Instant gratification? Investing in a product that will last (visit our selection here )? Or is it, because you just REALLY, really want it? No option is better than the other, but it comes down to what is most efficient for you and the real reason behind the buy.
2) Is it on sale?
It could be a mental trap. Are you buying whatever it may be, because the price has dropped a few digits? Yes? Then watch it! If this is your only reasoning for buying the goodie, it may not be the one for you. The best reason to buy a product is, because you won’t regret it! Before purchasing something at the till or putting it into your online cart, make sure you want it enough that you would be willing to pay full price for it, not just because it’s discounted.
3) Will you use it?
Seems a bit silly, but will you use this item? If the answer is nada, it’s probably not the one for you. Our rule to help decide whether it’s a keeper is by asking yourself two easy statements that help decipher: Think of three outfits or uses for it and if you can think of three places you will use it then it’s a done deal and call it, SOLD! With Duluth Pack products, we make it a bit straight forward with these questions, because you’ll have us for your lifetime – literally (so we know we’ll go with at least three outfits through that time period and at least three locations or times you’ll use us).
Voila, you’ve survived our breakdown of the daisy petal picking questions – (no, not the does he/she love me), but the to buy or not to buy continuous theme.
