It's not a bargain it you do not need it!

Every timeI share my "deals" with family and friends, someone in the group always asks, "Did you need that?" Only a rookie to the frugal world would ask such a silly question. Did I need another bottle of free shampoo? No...but it was free and I will use it when I run out of the other 3 bottles on my shelf. These rookies do not understand the beauty of stockpiling. Can you ever have enough toothpaste? I only have 6 tubes in the cabinet now....but I will add to it if I can get it for free. I will eventually use it or donate it to the local domestic violence shelter.
I do have my own limits. I do not stock pile things that will spoil or that I simply will not use.
So to answer the rookie question, If I do not need it, I do not buy it.
