Don’t quote us on this but nothing feels better than finding a discount deal. As a person who likes buying cool things, discounts help lessen the stress you feel inna your left chest whenever the money for something you bought actually leaves your account. If you love discounts as much we do, here are 8 things you’ll relate to.

1. The way you scour the internet and magazines looking for discounts and coupons.

3. Saving things to your cart but never buying because there’s no discount

You doing all the math.

4. The way you wait until the end of every year to buy things.

6. You, on your way to the store to buy all the things you can now afford because of discounts.

7. Buying things you don’t need at the moment just because there’s a good deal!

Don’t worry, you’ll need that thing someday.

8. The joy you have when you see the gadget you want on sale

You and your friends breaking into a dance because it’s not every day you see your dream phone or laptop for 50% off.
