Like I said, I am a deal junkie. But there’s a reason for it – the rewards and savings that you can use to keep the dreaded budget under control.
Prime example: for every $100 I spend in a month at Kroger, I can get a 10 cent discount on gasoline. Because gas prices have been falling, I was able to get gas yesterday afternoon for $1.889. What an awesome deal!
(We stretch our gasoline budget even more by carpooling as much as possible. We rarely fill up the tank more than once every 10 days!)
