Yesterday after I got off work I was craving macaroni and cheese. I decided I was going to stop at CVS to pick up a box. As I got to where the food was, there was a great debate: Kraft macaroni and cheese ($1.59) versus Velveeta Shells and Cheese ($3.19). I decided on the Velveeta Shells and Cheese because it sounded better, picked up my box, and made my way to the cash register. On the way, I was kicking myself because: 1. I just bought the more expensive box of macaroni and cheese and didn’t feel like depriving myself, and 2. I should stock up on these types of things while I do my normal grocery shopping. I’d save time, money, and gas.
When I got up to the register, the girl asked me if I had some type of card. I told her no, and she scanned one, rang up my box of macaroni and cheese, and sent me on my way. I was a little disturbed she didn’t offer me a card. Of course on the flip side, I should have asked, but I was in a hurry and wanted to go home. When I got home, I took Tiffany’s advice and checked out the CVS deals from Money Saving Mom. The CVS deals sound a lot better than the Walgreens Easy Saver Rebates! I wish I would have known about this awhile back. I would have been doing this all the time.
There is a CVS right up the street from me, and I’ll be visiting there to take advantage of the deals from now on. Not only is it closer, but I’m saving more money on gas and time from having to drive a lot farther to Walgreens! I feel like I should have known about this already, but I’m glad I found out now.
What’s a money saving tip that you wish someone had told you earlier?
