Guy suggests making a list of what you need before you start you shopping, including the max price you’re willing to spend, so that you don’t purchase items you don’t really need just because they’re on sale.

Also make sure you know the model numbers or specs for what you’re looking for so you don’t get swayed into purchasing a lesser model that appears to be available for a great price.
