Steam Sale - My wallet isn't ready.

What is it?
For those of you that don't know, Steam has been kind enough to offer wonderful and cheap deals off many games within its library. For many its a time of joy, of wonderful things, of mystique and wonder, with each day a new deal popping up. Indeed, the Steam sales are perhaps the true version of Christmas.
It isn't uncommon to see popular and AAA games at near bargain cuts like 75% or even up to 85%! Many games such as Dishonored, Borderlands 2, and The Elderscrolls V: Skyrim, are all expected to be at very low prices. Currently we are at Valve's equinox, a time that is followed by three sales. We have just experienced the first passing of the Halloween Sale, a minor appetizer to the main courses to come. Within the week, the annual Autumn Steam Sales is to come, and after that comes to greatest of all sales: The Winter Steam Sale.
Can I afford it?
The short term answer? Absolutely yes!
The long term answer? Nobody survives the Steam Sales, especially the behemoths of the Winter and Summer sales. Just recently a man by the name of John Doe reported the following after the Summer sale:
However, other people have found wonderful and productive means of achieving money for the sales! Many have completely changed living styles and converted to the masterrace of PC gaming completely!
So why a megathread?
Because the Steam Sales are a horrendous monster, a terrible plague that seeks to destroy all of our wallets. Many will suffer with these sales, losing money, and most importantly, their lives to the amount of amazing games that go on sale! We can see this through several photographic pieces of evidence:
Dated back to 1932 CE, somewhere in New York.
A painting by Leonardo Da Vinci.
Commissioned by the USSR against the Sales, 1972.
What's on your wishlist?
FOR ME? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! I'M BROKE, TAKE THAT VALVE! Oh but...
Well ok, but I really don't have any...
No, I really-really don't have any...
NO! NO! I CAN'T...
What's the result of the Sale?
A true Santa heralds in a real holiday, with tangible gifts and wonderful toys.
I mean- the only way to win is not to buy. Save yourself!
