v.— «My oldest daughter’s friend Polly calls bargain hunting “spaving,” which she defines as “spending to save… because while you are spending money, you’re actually saving on the full price.” I like the word and even the thought behind it, but even Polly had to admit that she’d rather “spave” her money buying soda and candy—something she’ll use—than a case of motor oil, which she won’t.» —“Buying ‘bargains’ can be expensive” by Chuck Jaffe in Boston MarketWatch Feb. 2, 2005.
