The need vs want problem. I think you have to be fairly well off to not have that be a problem lol

No kidding, erick99! Maybe you should set aside a strict budget? For example, I will not spend more than what my projected dealsplus.com payment will be. That way dealsplussing is "free."

I make a budget every month in Excel. I started doing that in the early 80s when VisiCalc first came out. I always know, to the penny,how much is left after all of my expenses. It's usually not much. July/Aug might be better this year as I am teaching two additional summer classes.

Yes, I see that DP deals can be overwhelming on your wallet. I try to keep a mental note on what I spend every month, and lately I have spent the most on DP.

Yeah, I just started using this site but I can see how it can be an addiction!

You'd think you are saving by buying all the things on sale but in the long run I am left with a bunch of things I don't use :(

I don't have that problem- since I'm broke anyway! Although, I don't know what I'm going to do once I bring the cash in!
