Would you buy something that was $5?
What about $4.99 (OMG! that is so much cheaper than before!)
Or, would you point your ‘seriously’ face @ the person above and say “Seriously? 1 friggin cent, I’ll take the budget $3.79 one please. (There it is again, not $3.80… $3.79. Argh.)
(nothing in particular)
I honestly don’t know why shops (especially supermarkets) purposefully make their stuff 1 cent cheaper…
(If I said the above statement I would be lying. They do it so that their product seems ‘cheaper’, to make it more appealing to thrifties who would be like “I’ll save 1 cent please. Then, I’ll use that 1 cent along with 498 other cents to save another cent!! Oh, this day just keeps getting better and better!”)
No offence to thrifties intended. I jump for joy (on the inside of course, what were you thinking? (maybe a bit of an exaggeration there ((the brackets around this explanation about the brackets are just here to increase the character count wo0t.)))) when the cashier rounds say a total of $12.35 down to $12.30 (thank you Swedish rounding), and I then save $0.05 dollars, (only I don’t because I pay by eftpos…).
Some tips ‘a reliable source’ (also known as the internet) suggests to save some money.
Keep saving those cents, until next time.
