Yesterday I was at Home Depot picking up another can of paint for a bedroom. Before I ask the associate to mix up the can of paint I asked her if Home Depot was going to have another paint sale soon. She said, yes! The sale starts on Thursday! She then explained to me that if I purchase the paint now, I could come in with my receipt for my $10 off per can of paint. I also happened to have picked up a gallon of paint this past Sunday too. That’s another smooth $20 in savings by just asking about upcoming sales! Ask, and she shall save some more money! Asking in my book is a given. It doesn’t hurt to ask, and sometimes you’ll get a surprising answer that will light you up with a huge smile!
Saving money is just plain smart, but you also need to save it with purpose, usefulness and saving your own sanity to boot!
