Check Your Receipts
I always try to purchase items on sale. But if I'm not getting the sale price on each item, then I'm not saving. Registers now automatically calculate the amount due back if you pay cash. Store clerks don't even bother to count change back. They just hand back a wad of cash. I doubt if younger clerks even know how to count cash back. If my grocery bill is $51.31 and I give the clerk a $100 bill plus two $1 bills, they look at me strangely and say the bill is only $51.31. I tell them to just input the amount I gave them and see what happens. They are always surprised how the change is always in larger bills, as if it's magic. I also always count my cash back to be sure it is accurate. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
