August 13, 2014: Consider the Cost
What else do you need to look at besides the price tag when figuring out total cost of an item?
When I first discovered all the back to school deals out there, I spent hours each week scanning all the circulars and driving to all the grocery, office supply and drug stores to make sure I didn’t miss even one freebie.
The problem was that I didn’t account for all the time and gas I invested into my shopping, much less the time I took returning items when I found better deals elsewhere.
I want you to get as many deals as you possibly can during this time of year, but I also want you to make sure you consider the total cost of each of those items.
