Saving money on planned purchases
Moral I learned today: An extra two minutes is sometimes all it takes to save.
I am getting all the Swan lake stuff for DD this year for Christmas. The DVD was next on my list.
I was going to just run get it at Target - $19.99 marked down to $13.99. So I froogled it first before I left the office.
Found that Costco had it for $11.99. The Costco is even closer by than the Target, and I'm already a member. So I ran over and got it! They also had the doll set I bought last week at Target for cheaper. But now I'm debating whether to return the ones hidden in the attic and repurchase at Costco or not. Right now I feel like I will only do that if I really get bored one day.
Anyway, it pays to take a moment to do a search for coupons online or froogle for price comparisons first, if you have an item you plan on buying.
