Saving $25

April 20th, 2006 at 05:35 am

Was at the doctor's this week, and remembered to ask him to write up my prescription for larger quantities at a time. The pharmacist had told me I'd save a little that way. As it turned out, it was very little--I saved $3 by getting a 3-month supply instead of one. Seemed hardly worthwhile, until I figured it out would save $12 over the course of a year.

Then I ordered some rawhide bones for the dog, and noticed that shipping would be free if I bought more at a time. So I ordered a 6-month supply instead of a 3-month supply. It only saved $3.38. But by ordering this amount twice a year, instead of smaller orders 4x a year, it will save $13.52.

A good reminder to myself that small changes really do add up over time.

    It really is the little bits that add up for me too. Do that a couple more times and you'll have $100 !

    I love being able to save little bits of money here and there on things I'd buy anyway. Keeping track helps it feel a little more gratifying.

    i love to save on little hits, as we call them.. but, i hate to keep track of the lil savings... i just take notice of the rebates and grocery savings mostly.. but, a penny saved is a penny earned they say.. lil hits help keep us motivated to work out deals... congrats on thinking thru each transaction... it will pay off for you, if you continue to ask yourself how can i save more?

    Those little ones seem to snowball nicely, a few bucks here and there and you start seeing more money. Good work! Lots of folks ignore the dollar or two-but they add up.
