Be careful of "Sales"

Here's an e-mail I recieved from my step-mom, it's a good reminder about careful shopping and knowing your prices!

"I saw in the Giant grocery ad that storebrand yogurt would go on sale starting Friday, 20 for $10. So I wasn't going to buy any 'til next week sometime, certainly not yesterday when I stopped for milk. As I walked in I got to thinking, hmmm, isn't the regular price something like 7 for $3? You betcha! As you can guess, I bought several at 43 cents each instead of 50 cents on sale!"

Just because it's "on sale" doesn't mean the price has gone down. Just a reminder to continue to be smart shoppers, I know you already are! :)

Thanks Irene!!!!

I actually read that companies pay big bucks to advertise their items in the weekly circular...whether they are even on sale or not!! Most people think since it is in the sale is on slee...not true these have to be careful! I always look for the box indicating how much you are saving!!!
