Simple Savings: Try It Before Stocking Up

There have been a few times when I have stocked up on something that is on sale. They were a great price and when you have 5 kids, that is a good thing. After I bought them and brought them home, I found out that we didn't like them. What good is it to stock up on something and then not want to eat it! I either had to take all of them back and get a refund or give them all to the food bank. So.........
Before stocking up on something, BUY ONLY ONE and take it out to your car and try it to make sure you like it. If it is canned food, bring a CAN OPENER and open it and see if you like it. In the long run, it will be worth the little bit of time and effort to make sure that you like it before you bring it home.
