I would shop around and try to find the best deal I could. I really need a new computer and hopefully will be able to afford one some time this year.

I will not be able to save for a couple years I am estimating as I have some bills that come first. If I could the first things I would save for would be a comfortable chair and bed. I really need them badly.

I decide what we want and prepare a list of goods before I go to shop. I always give first place for necessary goods. When I got my salary, I buy goods for month. I rarely buy vegetables, because I have a large and beautiful garden and it has many vegetables, fruits and flowers. I manage it well. So I can save some money from them.

I would be shopping around as I saved, to inspire and to plan

I rarely save for anything - If I have the money I just buy, if I don't then I wait till I do.

My process tends to be something like this: Decide I need a certain type of item. Research said item, looking at a variety of options and price ranges. Narrow my options down to a few; monitor the price for a while while saving up. Wait to actually buy until the one I decide on hits the low end of the price range I've observed since watching it. Buying stuff at work is easier, because I can just log into the store system and compare the recent sale prices to whatever discount I might get to see what's better.
