  • Price = what you pay.
  • Value = what you get.

You lose money when the price you pay does not match the value you're getting. For example, when you're paying high interest on credit card debt or spending on stuff you hardly use.

You gain money when you look for opportunities to get more value at a lower price: For example, buying quality merchandise when it is marked down.

  • Avoid credit cards, because the interest rates are very high on them. “Sometimes they are 18 percent. Sometimes they are 20 percent. If I borrowed money at 18 or 20 percent, I’d be broke.”
