We are watching every penny these days, but still want to continue adding to our emergency supplies. Before buying a new item, we compare prices between local area stores and internet sources like Amazon. While we were at the store, I was starting to write all the items and prices down when my husband came up with a good idea. He said, “Why not use your cell phone and just take a picture of the item and price?” I don’t know why I hadn’t thought about doing this before, but it sure saved a lot of time. I tried not to be obvious about it, and if any clerk would have asked me to stop I would have. Not sure how it would be at your store, but this technique sure made price comparisons a lot easier.
