Then they debate the pros and cons of overbuying versus underbuying — and share what compelled Sarah to buy a puppy stroller.

This episode really resonated for me.
1. I always have to edit the “sorry” “I think” and other waffles out of my emails. I can’t stop writing them! (oops, strike that exclamation point.) But I do take them out. 100% agree with what you said about it.
2. Sarah’s five questions about buying things are brilliant! I couldn’t stop the podcast the first time through, so I went back a second time to copy them down. As a “cute shoe” overbuyer these were great questions and work so well for anything you’re thinking about acquiring.

I realize this is an older episode but wanted to comment on one thing and ask one thing (in case anyone checks in on the comments still).
I love Sarah’s 5 questions (something I need to start doing as I tend to be an overbuyer too). One suggestion I had with regard to buying books that is similar to the Wishlist on Amazon is to check and see if your library has an online portal and if so, see if they give you the ability to save books on there that you want to take out in the future. I’m in a REALLY rural area of western NY and ours does, so I’m guessing the library systems in LA probably do too. I’ve started saving books I want to read to a wish list on there and then taking them out from the library instead of buying them. Then if I really like the book and want to keep a copy (i.e. The Four Tendencies), I put it on my Amazon wishlist for Christmas, but at least I’ve had the opportunity to read the book without having to pay for it.
I had a question for Sarah too about the Robinhood App. Do they charge you any kind of a no activity fee (like after 6 months)? That’s what tends to get me because I forget and don’t do any buying or selling and then get charged.
Anyway, love the podcast (found you after listening to Liz and Gretchen on Happier) and love listening to both of you, even though I’m not in Hollywood. I’ve learned a lot from them and had some real “aha” moments!
