We’ve talked a lot in our “Larry’s Auction Advice” series about the importance of preparation: Setting financial limits as to how much you will spend on a Date 2 Remember experience package, and prioritizing your top auction list targets. Financial planning ensures you don’t buy something you can’t afford. Prioritizing keeps your random urges in check so you don’t regret your winning bid later. Both of these practices also work together to keep you headstrong late in the game. You know your limits which reduces hesitation and second guessing.
