Spaving is a new term I learned. I got it from a post by The Everyday Minimalist. Spaving is a term she coined to describe what a lot of us do: we "spend to save." You know, we set out to purchase something we need. We notice that there is a larger size of it for a few pennies or dollars more and think, "Wow, that's a great deal! We'll be saving money!" So we purchase the larger size, that costs more money, and feel good about it because we've actually saved money. Wrong! What we've actually done is spent more money, and probably ended up getting something that will ultimately go to waste since we didn't need the extra in the first place.
Next time you're out shopping, keep in mind what you need and remember that spending extra to buy what you don't need is not saving.
