I just got back from a shopping trip … or should I say spree.
You know, for someone with almost no extra money to spare it sure seems like I’m out shopping a lot lately! I think it’s mostly because I’m bargain hunting and stocking up for the month ahead. Honestly.
The weekly flyers were delivered to our house earlier today and I noticed that M & M Meats had some of our favorite food items on sale for half price so off I went.
We’re on such a tight budget though that I have to admit that each time the barcode scanner passed over an item I cringed a little bit. Luckily the bill wasn’t all that much and we have some tasty food to eat over the next month or so thanks to the great sale.
Do you shop around for bargains? Food, clothes or otherwise? Obviously I do, but if I have to drive for an hour to buy a few sale items it’s not really worth the gas and my time – unless it’s a massive deal. I search for deals that are nearby in most case – at least for every day items and I search further out for big ticket items.
