So I am creating a budget.
Important things to remember for
Steam Holiday Sale 2013
Stick to budgetMy budget is going to be $60, now and forever. Why $60? Because that's usually the standard cost of a new game. I want to get the most for my money, and for the price of one new game you can easily buy five during these sales. I all ready own a lot of games I don't play enough of though, and theoretically, I probably shouldn't even be spending any money on a new game. But we've established I'm a weak human with no self control. Also, if I do stick to this plan of only buying games during these two time periods of the year, surely that gives me enough time (about six months between each sale) to play those new games, right? Right?!? I'm so scared right now, TELL ME I CAN DO THIS!!!
Prioritize deals by savings50% is great and all, but 75% is better. As is 80% and 90%. The higher the percentage the better the savings, duh. Recent releases in October and November show up in the Holiday sale, but again, why spend $40 on one game during a time when that amount can get me so much more. Also, it's not like that game won't ever be on sale later on for less...or will it?
