Today is Blog Action Day. This relates to one of my little concerns - the environment.
My radical idea for the day is to ask you to boycott Sam's Club and Costco. Reason? They promote you to spend more than you would otherwise. Do you really need two closets worth of toilet paper?
Sam's and Costco always ask you to buy way more than you would normally buy - and sometimes at more per unit cost than your normal supermarket!
One example of saving money is our "budget health food chain" - Sunflower Market. Their produce and meat prices are often way cheaper than Sam's and Costco.
I realize that for a large family like my friends the Wilsons, it makes total sense to shop at Sam's and Costco. But if you don't shop for a large family, consider the savings you'll make by having less of everything in your house.
And please don't take me as being critical of you if you're a Sam's/Costco devotee. I just like to give people a chance to consider something they may not have before.
By the way, this week I will be blogging less than usual. I'm in Dallas for some meetings with my work, and my internet access is limited. Also, my schedule is a little quirky.
