Default Re: Never impulse buy

Smart move,
I also always sleep on any deal before committing.
I also always research what I want to buy.

Last week there was a new Mapex snare on eBay for $145 or best offer plus $15 shipping.
I googled it and I found that Casico had 6 of them in stock for $130 shipped.

I bid $105 on the eBay snare to make it $120 shipped.
No one else bid, and the auction ended.
The seller refused my offer.

A few days later I won a better Sonor snare for $125 shipped.

When you are using eBay your impulse is to bid and beat the other guy and win the item.
That's wrong! If it's a bad deal, move on, until a good deal comes along.
I kind of like old drums:)
