Redundancy and Substitutes

重复品及替代品


Pay attention to any duplication when making your purchase. If you buy a landline phone while you use a cell phone for everything, it's a redundant purchase that deserves second thoughts. Also think of any substitutes for that big-ticket purchase. If you want to buy word processing software and can find a free version that does the same thing, that should affect your decision.

消费时关注是否购买重复。如果你总是使用手机,那购买固定电话就是值得三思的重复消费。同时,在购买高价商品时也要注意是否有其替代品。如果你想购买文字处理软件,但又能找到具有同样功能的免费版本,那就会影响到你的决定。


Time Is Money

时间就是金钱


This factor is often overlooked, but time deserves consideration because it translates into money. Your time is really worth something, so spending a half hour to run across town to save a few cents is no bargain after all. Even when making a purchase, you can also figure it out by time. Use your hourly wage or salaried rate at work as a benchmark. If you want to buy something for $200 and divide the purchase price by your hourly pay rate, you realize you have worked a certain number of hours to make that purchase.

这一因素往往会被忽略,但时间应该被考虑到,因为它可以转化为金钱。你的时间非常宝贵,所以为了省几毛钱花半个小时、跑一大段路,真的根本不划算。即使是购买商品时,你也能用时间来计算。以你的时薪或者工作的薪水率为基准。比如你想花200美元买某样东西,把购买价格除以你的时薪,你会发现为了买那样东西你花费了多少个小时。
