Shop with Common Sense

Money

Hold up.

This blog is my place to discuss how I’m simplifying, changing, growing, and working to live more deliberate instead of desperate lifestyle.

It’s not really a thrifting or money saving blog, however I am absolutely living more frugally and paying off debt to become a better version of myself.

I don’t coupon or shop with a lot of hacks. I have tried that and it was more work than it was worth, so my solution has been pretty dang simple:

Shop with common sense.

Yep, that’s it and it has been proving to work out nicely.

Here is a stellar example that just blew my mind: tea tree oil

There it sits at $14.99.

Well, I just wasn’t going to pay that for hair oil anyway so I just moved right along.

I rounded the corner looking to see if there was a natural dry shampoo because I am almost out.

What do you know? Right there in the ethnic section was tea tree oil

And it was $2.79.

Am I losing my mind and going crazy? That is a MAJOR, MASSIVE, INCREDIBLE price difference. We aren’t just talking about a buck or two.

So, if my scalp gets itchy I know what to do.

  1. I’ve noticed in stores that where things are placed makes a difference in price a. On one aisle it could be one price and 2 aisles later it’s like half the price or more!! Definitely have to be on your toes! Lol

    1. Yes, you sure do! Stores are incredible in their marketing strategies! Since I am super-sensitive to spending money right now, I take the time to look around. It doesn’t take long to find out there are some real jewels hiding on the shelves 🙂
