Day 20: Read the Sale Papers!

I can't tell you how many times I've thrown out the weekly sale papers without even taking a glance. What a huge mistake!

From electronics to groceries to toys and everything in between, the sale papers are your inside scoop to the stores before you ever leave your house. For example, yesterday I went to the grocery store to buy a few items for the weeks dinner and paid $5.49 lb. for ground meat only to come home and scan the sale papers to find out it was on sale somewhere else for $2.99 a lb. That may not seem like a huge difference, but I bought about 4 pounds of ground meat which means I could have saved $10! That's enough for lunch at my favorite thai place.

Taking a few minutes to scan the sale papers against your shopping list will give you an idea of where to head to get the best deals. Over time this will result in a lot more money in your pocket and less frustration from finding out about good deals too late.
