Tip of the day

Look around the store.

  • I needed Gatorade and was shopping at Walgreens.  I looked where the Gatorade is stocked by the sodas, and it was $1.99 per container.  I looked in the refrigerated drink section and there were some on clearance for $1 each.
  • At Kroger, some of the organic milks are stored in the organic/health foods section.  Some are stored in with the other milks.  Do a price comparison.  Look for marked down milks in both sections.
  • Often stores will put certain items on the end caps or in the “sale” section or aisle.  This does not necessarily mean that they are the best prices.  Instead, look on the aisles where the other brands of the same item are stored to price compare.
