Hello Family How Are you today?
I am a cheapskate but I still will spend on stuff I like. Girl Scout cookies being one of them. But when I found out the cookies went from $3.50 a box to $5 a box and the size had gotten smaller that was my que to bail out on buying the cookies.
When you find something that you like and the quality has gone down but the price has went up. Why still stay devoted to that item? I have found Walmart makes about the same type of cookies that Girls Scouts produce for about $1.25 a package ( thin mints). Now that's about my price range.
Also with all of this talk about this deadly virus going around and that we might have to stay at home for weeks. What are you doing being a frugal /cheapskate when it comes to stockpiling? In general what I do first is make a list of the things that I really really need. Then with my list I go hunting for the sale of that item. Because if you purchase something and don't use it that's a waste of money to me. What do you think? Before you go out and buy in a rush to beat others to it or in a panic. Do a check list, check your sales and especially set a budget. No since wasting money on stuff you think you might need and really don't!
Have a great Cheap Cheetah Day & Save that $$$
