For one reason or another I had a craving for a pineapple recently and so I decided that I was going to shop around for one. A person then told me that I should avoid it as at this point of the year it is an out of season fruit and therefore the price is usually jacked up and will probably cost me like $5 to buy one.
In many ways that is true I suppose where if you really want to save money, shopping for specific items during specific times of the year can definitely save you money. I suppose the more extreme like in this case is that when it comes to food items changing your grocery shopping based on the time of the year can be a way o save more too. Almost like how some people purchase and plan their meals based on what is on sale.
While those are a good way to save money and in many ways convinced me to not shop for the pineapple, funny thing was that I was walking to the grocery store to buy a different item and wouldnâ€™t you know itâ€¦â€¦I saw a decent size pineapple for about $2.50. As well, they had a special where you could buy two for $4.50. So I guess destiny was on my side huh?
