In todays economy saving money is often not an option, it is a requirement. Many people simply will not make their monthly budget if they do not cut price corners by searching for and taking advantage of sales opportunities or by clipping coupons. When done correctly, people can save as much as 100% of their shopping cost by using coupons. Being able to spot and take advantage of a money saving deal can become very time consuming but can also be also very rewarding. Unfortunately I am not very good at comparing cost versus value. I generally have a certain dollar amount for a weekly budget. I buy the lowest cost per whole unit instead of the lowest cost per ounce or pound. For me, the final cost at the register is what matters most. I can however spot a good deal. The best deal that I have found in the past was for Shick Hydro shaving gel. It had a regular price of $4.29. For one week only CVS was offering $4.00 in Extra Bucks (CVS Cash) for each one you buy. The weekly limit was 250 of them. Besides the draw of receiving the Extra Bucks I also had $4.00 off any 1 Shick item manufacturer coupons. Because the item was not considered on sale I also qualified for my employee discount of 20%. $4.29

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
