What if there was a store that was having a sale, and an item is priced at 3.00 and was 40 percent off? It would cost 1.80.
And then if there was anther sale, and an item is priced at 3.00 and was 60 percent off, it would cost 1.20.
But, what if you were in a hurry, and you weren’t watching your prices closely at the store. And then you were looking at the items in your bag, and the item was marked at 3.50. Well, then, it costs 1.40. Yes, it’s only pennies different but if you’re buying lots of them, it adds up.
The moral of the story is to look at the prices on the items before you pay your money. And if there are price changes you weren’t expecting, ask about them. Before you pay your money.
