T is for TIME
Time and Patience really go hand in hand. When looking for the deals and steals you will need to spend some time at the store. For me the first aisle or section in the store I go to is the Clearance. I can spend lots of time here, it’s my favorite place
Some clearance items are in different areas all over the store. So take your time and look through all of them. It depends on what you are looking for, but I look at Everything! Invest your time and allow the deals to come to fruition!
It takes time to scan items. I know at WalMart I have found that a sticker may be a certain price but once I scan, it’s cheaper! It will be worth your Time to download store apps that have the barcode scanner within it. Your phone becomes a scanner.
This can save you time. You can look for the physical scanners in the store to check prices as well. I have found that most stores are getting rid of them. It may be worth it for you to download the store app and have your own scanner. Just take your time and Scan, Scan, Scan.
As always, keep in mind SPOT while shopping. S is for Specials, P is for Patience, O is for Don't Overpay and T is for Time. So find out when the Specials are. Don't forget to have the Patience when you shop. Never Overpay for an item and plan on spending the Time to look properly. SPOT will help anyone master the deals and steals.
