    When you go to a store to purchase something, do you automatically look at the price tag first??
    Or do you know exactly what it is you're getting, so you spot it and toss it into the buggy??

    Of course, this goes for the average every day items....such as cereal, or a box of cookies...or paper towels, etc........this wouldn't work for buying a house or car.

    I was curious as to how many really take a gander at the price tag first......and if the price is somewhat higher than you expect.....do you sorta go "Whoaaaa"...and stand there and think for a moment whether you need it or not ~LoL~

    I know what i need or want....and i always check the prices first. I have to....can't afford the expensive "name brand" stuff usually, and most of the non-name brand stuff is usually just as good!

    Before I buy, yes. Before I take a long look? No.

    Only time I don't check the price is when the Mrs says she wants something. There's cost and then there's COST if you get my drift.

    yup, I don't get enough shopping money not to check the price. I also stick to a list. I hate shopping so the less time i'm doing it the happier I am.

    I can vividly remember the days where we checked the pennies....... I can remember buying tonights dinner with loose change wishing payday was tomorrow instead of the day after. But these days, I seldom bother looking at the price unless it's a high value item, appliances TV's Phone system etc...

    In the grocery store i don't bother, just add it up and swipe my check card.......

    I balance the check book at the end of the month.........
