Act 167

Shop the bargain bins.

There’s no shame is saving a penny. In fact, it’s a pretty honourable pursuit. Keep in mind that retail locations are like giant real estate developments for products. The lower the profit margin, the less desirable the real estate (read way at the back or off to the side or up high or down low), the better the price. When a product is on its way out, its often deep discounted and put in a bin to go to its next life at a discount retailer or to certain thirft shops. Shop in the bin, you never know what you’ll find – and if it happens to be something you need, you’ll find savings as well.
