Just because the item is available in Duty Free does not mean it is cheaper. Before you travel check your local prices for items that you would like to buy. Sometimes it is cheaper at your local store than in Duty Free shops.
Of course there are some things that are just not available locally and these items are worth buying duty free.

This is a biggie. For example, when you travel from the U.S. to Australia, you arrive two days later and actually miss an entire day.
From Guam to Honolulu, you arrive the day before you departed Guam.
When you fly from the U.S. to Europe you usually arrive on the next day, except for day flights which arrive on the same day.
When you fly East from Europe to the U.S. you usually arrive the same day. it is just a very long day.
When you fly from Australia/Asia to the U.S./Canada you usually arrive the same day, but the time is earlier than when you left. You cross the International Date Line is the reason for this one.

In Paris, you are not allowed to sit in the front seat of the taxi, so plan your trip accordingly if you have more than three persons. The city has an excellent subway system so if you can, make ample use of it.
