Funny!Her: Honey, look what I just bought! I saved us money dear, it was on sale!
You: But you spent $100, there’s $100 less in the bank account now.
Her: yes dear, but it normally costs $125, so I saved us $25!
You: But.... we’re $100 poorer than before
Her: siiigh.... but I saved us $25, it was ON SALE!
You: ....... yes dear.
I do the same with PSA purchases. I show the wife a similar product elsewhere at a higher price, then show her the PSA item “on sale” and recommend to get it now, ya know, while it’s “on sale”... Usually works....
