Trying to cut costs in your daily budget is a valiant — and often necessary — practice. A few dollars saved here and there can amount to a sizeable sum over time, after all. But how you save can make a big difference in how much you save. Because when it comes down to it, not all “money-saving” tactics actually save you money.

想要减少日常开支是很勇敢的,也是很必要的做法。这儿省几块,那儿省几块,时间长了就会省出很可观的一笔钱。但用不同的省钱方法,省下的数额可是差别很大的。如果你深入研究的话,不是所有“省钱”妙招都会给你省钱。


Here are 11 common penny-pinching tactics that could actually cost you more in the long term — and smart money-saving moves you can make instead.

下面我们列举了11种常见的省钱妙招,但从长远来看,这些妙招可是在让你损失更多的钱啊。为此我们也提供了一些你可以取而代之的聪明的省钱方法

Buying Something Just Because It's on Sale

仅仅因为有折扣而买东西

"Sale is the most dangerous four-letter word," says personal finance blogger Zina Kumok. And with the rise of flash sales and coupon sites like RueLaLa and Groupon, the temptation to impulse-buy just to get a good deal is even higher, adds Ozeme J. Bonnette, author of “Get What Belongs to You: A Christian Guide to Managing Your Finances.” "So often, we find a deal that is too good to pass up, yet we wouldn't have even bought the item or service if it had not been mentioned to us," she explains. 

个人理财博主Zina Kumok说:“降价促销是最危险的字眼。《该是你的就是你的:一位基督徒的理财指南》(Get What Belongs to You: A Christian Guide to Managing Your Finances)作者Ozeme J. Bonnette补充道随着闪购和RueLaLa、Groupon等团购网站的兴起,仅仅因为有折扣想占便宜而冲动消费的诱惑越来越大,“她解释说:”我们常常会碰到很优惠的折扣,又不想错过这么好的机会,但如果没人给我们说起过,我们根本不会想去买这些商品或服务。"

Clothing sales can be especially tempting, as we justify buying items we don't need because they're half off or bargain with ourselves that we'll wear an item "someday."  Commit this mantra from Los Angeles-based financial expert Pegi Burdick to memory, "The most expensive thing in your closet is the item you don't wear."

衣服特价是尤其诱人的,我们总是为想买一件半价或有折扣的衣服找理由:“我总有“一天”会穿的!”把洛杉矶理财专家佩希·伯迪克(Pegi Burdick)的这句准则铭记在心吧:“衣橱里最贵的衣服就是你不穿的那一件。”
