I buy at goodwill, and I donate to goodwill. IF I find a really great sale (like one year all the kids summer tops and thin material pants were .50 each) I buy a LOT and donate them

It helps someone else and I can take it off taxes. That's a win win

Give to someone. People don’t buy clothes at yard sales.

For the little money I would make on a yard sale, I would rather give them to someone who needs it for free.

It's simply the better thing to do. But you have to give to the right charity. If I'm donating I want people to get it for free. If I want someone to pay then I would have a yard sale.

I prefer to help others out and not go through having a yard sale.

I learned my lesson the hard way. I no longer have ANY carry-over credit balances. Zero debt.

I got rid of all our credit cards years ago. The interest is ridiculous! You end up paying a lot more in interest than the the cost of the items purchased!

Why buy more than I can pay for? The federal government does that, which causes inflation.

My credit card pays me, in the form of points. I do not want to pay my credit card company.

I am a worry-wart and a negativr person, so half-empty would be the answer. But, what people don't see is that I am a pragmatist, or a realist. So, it's is also not half full or half empty, but right down the middle.
