Substitute Goods – Savings Strategy

By taking advantage of Substitute Goods, we can save money on goods we do purchase. For example, I love to play golf. Because of the weather in New England, I can stay home or deal with rain. I choose to play through rain and cold weather.

The best golf specific raingear in the US is made by Zero Restriction and I needed some rain pants. Not wanting to spend $250 on pants, I found a similar pair at a hunting and fishing supply store, Cabelas, for $85.

Bottom Line:
1. Same Color (blue)
2. Same Material (GoreTex)
3. Great warranty – Cabelas is fantastic in this respect.

Saved $150 and got what I wanted by using a substitute good – fishing pants.
