I never buy plan b. I buy plan c instead. Plan c is more expensive, but it is easier to use and less time consuming. Plan b is a necessity that has become more popular recently as people feel more comfortable with the idea of paying with a credit card rather than a check.
I am not sure I can ever justify the cost of plan c. I have just been getting used to buying and using plan c and it is becoming less and less convenient. It is also becoming more and more inconvenient for me. I love the convenience of buying groceries without having to go out, but then I have to make a long trip to the store (or wait for a store trip) and then spend money on gas to get there.
I don’t know if this is true of all grocery stores, but when I go to a supermarket, I’m almost always forced to pay with a credit card. I’m just not sure I can justify the cost of plan c. For one, I wouldn’t use a credit card for a $25 bottle of wine and then pay a $20 store visit fee. Two, I’m buying more than I need for groceries.
And plan b is probably the most dangerous of the three. Because you never know how much you could spend on a bottle of wine you can’t afford to pay for before you leave home, or when you get to the store. If you buy too much wine, you get a credit card bill to pay, and if you buy too little, you get the store to charge you again. And that’s not even counting the time you spend waiting in line to pay.
Plan b is one of the oldest tricks in the book. And the fact that you cant even figure it out for yourself makes it a tricky one. But here are some tips that might help. You need to know how much you need to spend for a bottle of wine. You need to know how long you should wait before buying more than you need. You need to know what the store has to charge you if you make a mistake.
These costs are the same regardless of whether you buy the bottle of wine, or the $20 worth of coffee you ordered. So if you’re in a rush you should be ready to take the cost out of your budget (even if you’re not sure how much you need for the coffee). You should also be ready to take out the cost once you’ve bought the coffee.
Well, at least you know how much the costco is costing you. But you might have no idea how much you need to buy. I would suggest that you ask for a refund when the store says they cant refund you for anything. Or get a credit on your next purchase for a gift card you use at least once.
For some of us, our budgets have gotten so stretched out that we’ve forgotten about our budget when it comes to the costco. But for others, the costco can be a place we go to help us get our money back. It was recently my partner and I took a trip to the store and we found that we were still missing the exact amount we needed for our trip.
I cant imagine this happening to anyone except yourself.
While I’m not sure if it’s really a budget thing for anyone, I’m sure in our case it was in the form of a credit card. No joke.
