Ever since my teenage years, I have always been interested in electronics. You name it, a television, speakers, car audio, DVD player, anything of this sort and I was interested in learning more about it. When I was younger, when a hot new item would come out, I would rush out and buy it. I needed to have it, so I got it. Note that this didn’t have anything to do with me being young. I could easily be old and still be this way. I’m not because I learned a lesson along the way.
The lesson that I learned was that when it came to new electronics, waiting was the best thing. I would get the newest item, and then about a year later a newer version with better technology would come out. Suddenly the $500 amplifier I bought was now selling for $299. Even worse, was that price was brand new. When I would sell my used version, I could get $250. I just lost 50%! Of course, some might argue that the pleasure the amp brought me was worth it. I agree that the pleasure of the item does offset some of the purchase price, but not 50% worth!
Even if a “new and improved” version didn’t come out, the price would still drop. The price of waiting when it comes to electronic equipment is huge. Just by waiting a year, you can save a substantial amount of money. It can be hard – trust me, I know. But I’ve learned to focus on how much money I could save instead of the item in question. Doing this actually brings me more enjoyment with the item because I not only like using the item, but it is intensified because I know I got a good deal on it.
