6 Saving Blunders
There are two kinds of people in this world: the fortunate ones who learn from the mistakes of others, and the rest of us who have to be the others. If you want to be one of the fortunate ones, you have to know when a deal isn’t good. Today, host Rob West and Steve Moore talk about how to learn from the saving mistakes of other people.
· Determining whether something is a good deal or not depends on how, when, and where you buy that thing.
· Don’t think that just because something is on sale that you’re getting the best price. Try using an app that will tell you the best price for an item in your area.
· There’s nothing wrong with checking out the clearance section of a store, but make sure you’re really saving money.
· Don’t load up your online shopping cart just to get free shipping unless you really need the extra items.
Here are a couple of questions we answered from our callers on today’s program:
· My son’s been in the military for almost a year and he took out a whole life insurance policy. Is that a good policy for him to have?
· What does managing your money have to do with the gospel?
