Saving Money Now Can Cost More Down the Road
I’m one of those people who will try and stretch a dime to a quarter. I suppose it is the mindset which comes from having been a single parent for the past 27 years. Due to the fact that the great majority of my professional experience has been focused on managing groups of people, mostly in call center environments, I’ve not been particularly aware of how my “cheap” purchases may have or will cost me more money.
What has changed? I’m in an entirely sales and marketing role now and the gears have switched to the awareness of why it is important to weigh the actual return on financial investment over the long haul instead of chasing the discount. With that light bulb going off I’ve written my first blog centering around an example of how selecting a cheaper product now can end up costing more later.
