In a presentation I did last week I try to tell people about the Art of Shopping. It is important for you to be aware of prices and sales at the store. I can’t tell you how many times I see people just walking down the aisle putting items in their cart not knowing the prices. I tell people that it is your hard earned money that you are throwing away. Just by looking at a sales flyer or checking the prices on products can save you money. To give you an example Kroger does many 10 for $10 promotions, one such item was a half gallon of milk for $1.00. I can’t tell you how many people grabbed the gallon of milk for $2.99 instead of two half gallons for $2.00. This is just a waste of money. Keep your eyes open the deals are there.
