I’ve found that my $6 32-oz. jar of coconut oil at Wal-mart isn’t as healthy as the organic, sweet smelling oil found at health food stores. But its healthier than the shortening I had been using for baking. So its a good find for us.
I’ve found that unbleached all-purpose flour makes fluffier, better rising bread. Its not the fine ground whole wheat I’d been mixing with my freshly ground wheat but it tastes better to my family. And it still has to be healthier than the store bought wheat bread. So its a good find for us.
I’ve found that filing complaints really is worth the time and effort. After a very bad experience with a customer service agent, I complained to the company and the Better business Bureau. The company gave me a $50 gift certificate and a $50 credit on my debit card. What did I use all this free money on, you ask? A 3-in-1 printer. With the $50 gift card, it was $20 (with free shipping). I have a new printer on the way that we really needed and I still have $30 for the time ( a lot of time) I spent on the phone with customer service people. Now that is a good find!
I’ve found that the best deals on curriculum can be found on message boards and Yahoo groups. That’s where you find parents who are just like you, trying to make some money back from their used curriculum but not looking to rip anyone off. Good find.
