Ain't it the truth

Just saw this on the Internet (Stumble Upon) Words of Wisdom:


If a new TV cost $2000, and it's on sale for $1750, and then you decide to buy it, you did not save $250. You spent $1750."

Now I have to say at the outset that my wife is very good with money and finances. But when Kohl's sends those 10%, 20% or 30% discount coupons nothing short of divine intervention will stop her from going to Kohl's and "saving" that 30%.

I have to laugh. And when I saw that quote above it I just had to share it.

Wife and daughter, alike........."it's 30% OFF". Off what?

Remember, women SHOP, men BUY. Big difference.

They've closed our local K-Mart and like most stores that close they put everything on sale ..... except they raised the prices first My wife bought a small pool for my son's girlfriend's son for $50 at Walmart. Last time we went to K-Mart they had the same pool on sale, 30% off for $69

30 yrs ago I had a water treatment sales guy come to my house claiming he'd sell me a system that paid for itself. He said I'd save $1k a year on clothes per person, an amount I no longer remember on soap/detergent, $10k every 10-15 yrs on plumbing repairs, etc. His figures added up but his claims did not!
