Every Sunday, I will feature one easy, painless, money saving tip.
Today's Tip: Don't pay extra just for convenience. A container of sliced apples usually cost more than a bag of whole apples (and usually come in smaller packages). Individually packaged meats (example here) cost more than a large pack that you can separate yourself. Sure these products may help with portion control, but why pay extra for something you can quickly and easily do yourself with very little effort? Next time you're out shopping and come across an item that is marketed as a "time-saver" or "convenience", be sure to compare prices with the standard version of the product and decide if the added convenience is worth the price difference.
Hope you find a way to incorporate today's tip into your routine this week!
