Day 12: Check for Deals (28 Days of Financial Fitness Challenge)

Moore Income ·
This financial fitness step goes hand in hand with saving money that we talked about on Day 10. But since it was something I applied specifically, I figured it would be good to touch on the subject. I will start by saying that some people might find this to be time consuming or not worth the effort but as I have reiterated over and over, I truly believe that every penny counts when it comes to creating a better financial future. Today we traveled back from the Chicago area where we went to...

It does irritate me when I only need or want one of something when I have to buy another! I usually ended up not buying it as I refuse to pay more nor do I want to waste something I won't use.

Such an interesting read. Thanks for sharing! I was in a financial class once and the teacher told us to be careful of "free" offers because a lot of times there is more to it than what originally meets the eye. This article goes into great detail to explain this!

If it is some thing you need and you can afford it than i say get it and donate it to a local food pantry or senior center or even call a church up or school they my know some one who could use the extra.

BOGO "deals" - all scams?

Former Member ·
I love thinking about the connections between money and psychology, so this deep dive into BOGO deals from The Hustle newsletter was right up my alley: https://thehustle.co/are-buy-o...free-deals-worth-it/ "Studies have shown that consumers will buy two of something when the word ‘free’ is involved, even when they only need one — and the second item often ends up in the trash. If we walk into a store intending to buy one carton of milk, but encounter a BOGO deal and buy 2 cartons, we’ll...

From a "Good Morning, America" segment, this video from you tube, titled "Mom Feeds Family On $4 A Week" is evidence of Kathy Spencer's savvy shopping skill in how she shops for free. You would think that the Christian Children's Fund would be calling Kathy for advice on how they can reduce their 30 cents a day claims to only feed one child. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbbW6WpXWjw

How *I* Shop For Free

Men On A Budget ·
A few years back, I found a library book where the title, "How To Shop For Free" caught my eye. My initial reaction was "the lengths some people go to in order to sell books" but in my frugal world, free is not a four-letter word. What did I have to lose? “Wow… just Wow” would be a very good recap on the impact that Kathy Spencer'’s book had on me by the end of the 226-page quick read manuscript. I was so impressed that I immediately joined the www.howtoshopforfree.net web site that...
