When interested in an item make a firm decision on how much you feel the item is worth and stick to that. Consider the cost of postage or pick-up compared to the trouble of going to and making a normal retail purchase from a store. Once you are satisfied , enter your considered top price as your maximum bid, taking postage into account, and then leave it alone until after the auction ends. Don't get caught up in a bidding war! Don't let another bidder push you to a higher price in the heat of the moment. Bid smart - buy smart!!!!!
