So it got me thinking about how my opinion or views of something so simple as $1 have changed. I used to swing through the drive through a lot and grab a couple items off the $1 menu. I mean it seemed so cheap, right?.....it is JUST a $1. Or grab an impluse item at the grocery store or Walmart. Again, it is JUST $1.
After starting to coupon and I could see how much "just" $1 could buy me I was floored. JUST $1 is like gold to me now. So yes dear hubs I will wait in line and wait for customer service to verify that the cashier had a coupon and didnt scan it for my $1.
I took some pictures of things that I got for $1 OR less.....You will be amazed at how far that $1 can actually stretch.
|Only paid tax so .74 for 8 packets|
|5lb bag of potatoes .88 (weigh these bags by the pound, I got one that was almost 6 lbs. so about 3/4 lb extra)|
|The educational items were 70% so just .30 ea at Target. So you could have boughten 2 possibly 3 wsith tax for just under $1!!|
Benjamin Franklin wasnt kidding when he said "A penny saved is a penny earned".
I will be doing a post in the next few weeks on things you should never pay for again!!! Who doesnt love Free stuff??!!! And yes it is actual useful things that everyone uses.
