This is not anything new, in fact I have shared this often, but it bears repeating. “It isn’t a deal if it isn’t a deal.” There. That was it. Ok, for the sake of being a Frugal Friday post I wll elaborate. I went to CVS the other day because they had my son in laws favorite cereal on sale. Buy one, get one free. So for 4.79 I got two boxes. But the same box was only 2.42 at walmart. So two boxes there would cost 4.84. So even thought I got two free boxes at CVS I only really saved a nickle each. Hardly worth my time. And here is the kicker. The family size at walmart is even cheaper per ounce. So I actually lost money by following a sales ad. You have to know what things cost. If that had been something I normally shop for I would have had the price in my book or in my head. It pays to know. Literally.
