Every time I visit the local grocery store, I try to scope out the sales papers to see if there are good promotions or coupons on products I typically buy regardless.
It’s not necessarily a good way to budget your money if you splurge on expenses that aren’t a priority.
Just because pork ribs are 50% off this week, that doesn’t mean I need to buy them when the starting price is ridiculous to begin with. They’re delicious, but they’re also extremely expensive. However, if there’s a sale on paper towels or bottled water, you know I’m going to jump on the opportunity as soon as it comes up. It’s important for me to take advantage of sales if they’re for products that I otherwise buy at full prices on a regular basis. The same goes for cannabis products. Back when I first started shopping at cannabis dispensaries in this state, I unknowingly paid full price for every single product I purchased. Now I am savvy about shopping the sales at cannabis dispensaries because I get the marketing emails in my inbox. By planning my cannabis purchases around the available sales, I can finally afford the products that I want to use from the weed stores the most. Things like cannabis flower products and concentrates are great to get at low prices. That way I can buy more cannabis throughout the month than I would otherwise if I was paying the full prices like before. I love a good sale, and a sale at a local cannabis dispensary is no exception.
