Today as I walked through the supermarket I noticed that there were these huge bag of potatoes for under three dollars. This wasn’t a small bag either is it was apparently twenty pounds worth. While I didn’t actually have any intent to buy anything this was just my normal stroll to see if there are any great deals to be found as these deals can frequently be unadvertised. That must sound weird for some people where you would visit the supermarket as if you are going to the park. But it’s something I regularly do if it is on my way to another destination as an example. It kind of is like passing through the park.
By doing this as well I have developed a very good knowledge-base on what the best prices can be for various products. This can be important to avoid falling for those on sale signs that imply you are getting such a great discount when really it is miles away the best price to make a purchase a bargain. You can often uncover items that are on clearance too that are perfectly good as many times stores want to dump them long before they are expired and don’t want to take the risk of having to waste it.
This still sounds strange to so many people yet even with stores people do it all the time with say clothing stores. Why not do it for the stores that have items which you need to consume everyday as an essential part of your life? To me it makes shopping and saving money fun as well. In many ways it feels like it is a challenge to get the greatest products for less money as possible.
