Buy When Low, Hold At High

When you know your price points, it helps you to do Stock Market Shopping at any store!

Manufacturer’s coupons are now a rarity, thanks to coupon fraud, people “buying” coupons, “stealing” coupons from distribution centers, “selling” the coupon booklets, “altering” coupons to use on products not intended on the original coupons!

That left me with no choice, but to outsmart those who ruined frugal shopping, by committing coupon fraud!

Everything you buy in a store, goes through a “sales” cycle, up to 12 WEEKS. Within those 12 weeks, is the lowest price point. That’s when you need to buy, is when it’s at the lowest price point. You BUY LOW, buying enough until the next sales cycle, like with the Kraft Cracker Barrel Cheese shown. That’s a 2 MONTH supply of cheese, for my mother and I!

My local grocery store sells Kraft Cracker Barrel Cheese, retail price $3.99 each!

Cracker Barrel Cheese, $3.99 X 6 blocks of cheese = $23.94

Cracker Barrel Cheese, is on sale for $3.49 X 6 blocks of cheese = $20.94

That’s a $3.00 SAVINGS!

BUT…Wait a minute!

The grocery store’s sales flyer says you get $6.00 OFF INSTANTLY, when you BUY $20 worth of Cracker Barrel Cheese, with your grocery store loyalty card!

Here’s the math:

Cracker Barrel Cheese, $3.99 X 6 blocks of cheese = $23.94

Cracker Barrel Cheese, on sale for $3.49 X 6 blocks of cheese = $20.94

Cracker Barrel Cheese, $6.00 OFF INSTANTLY when you buy $20 worth:

$20.94 – $6.00 =$14.94 (Divide by 6 blocks) or $2.49 a block of Cracker Barrel Cheese!

That’s a $1.50 SAVINGS each, for a block of Cracker Barrel Cheese!

With this Stock Market Shopping Strategy, I saved $9.00 on 6 blocks of Cracker Barrel Cheese, just for 5 minutes of my time, in the store! Let’s see how much an hour that would be…

$9.00 X 12 (5 minutes X 12, to equal 1 hour (60 minutes)) = $108.00 an hour!

My Stock Market Shopping Strategies, pay you MORE money in SAVINGS, than an average job would pay you an hour!
