Making My Own Deals
I can't hold a candle to what our lovely Sluggy can do but I'm alright with it. The problem is that everything that I want is always out of stock when I get there. Even if I get to the store when it opens the first day of the sale, everything is gone.
Soooooo, what I have been doing is going on the last day of the sale at the end of the day and getting rain-checks for just about everything. At CVS, the rain-checks never expire so I can hold them until I get a really good coupon. While everyone else is trying to find the item that is on sale or put together a deal from the advertisements, I'm waiting. This is working out so much better than trying to tract down something that we use. And when I do need/run out of something, I have a sale waiting for me.I figure this is my way of cutting inflation at our house. If the price of everything is going up, this is my way to lock in a low price. Why can't I do this with gas?
This post will probably break Sluggy's heart but it has been working pretty well for me.
Just a thought,
