Opportunities to Save
This cute truck was beautifying the parking lot behind Main Street today as its driver delivered snacks to the Variety Store. I want these deliveries to continue, so I promised myself I'd buy some Utz products today. The sign in the window didn't lie: Bags of potato chips are discounted to 99 cents. At this price, I took a risk on "The Crab Chip," flavored with Old Bay seasoning, and also grabbed a box of pretzel rods. On my way to the checkout I noticed another opportunity to save: A new and prominent display of coin wrappers for keeping track of my loose change.
