The “On Sale” Myth

My grandmother used to get Bay Day coupons in the mail, and she would always try to get there before they expired in order to “save the 20%”. She would have saved more by not leaving the house, but this is part of how I was raised.

Same with buying multiples of things like soup or spaghetti sauce or Kleenex because it is ON SALE.

40 yrs ago when a store had a sale there was a likelihood, they would not have one for a while. Now with apps like FLIPP you can always find your favourite brands on sale somewhere and many of us are driving less than 15 min to find 4-6 grocery stores.
