VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
You cleverly left out the word "Inflation" ,the dreaded , "I" word. The media , will not use this word ,
unless it's friday evening .
We are being constantly told , the economy is great !
In my somewhat realistic world , I don't see it that way .
So, don't forget , don't use the "I" word , ever .
Does anyone see a problem with these articles lately from MSN Money? If you look at the comments, you will discover that these articles are reruns. I have also notice that some areas of the country are not getting the articles until later. As an example, last week I commented on something (I live in the Deep South) that I thought was a fresh article because I never saw it before. When I went to comment I notice that other people had commented on in as far back as August 27th. Then yesterday, there was something I never seen and that was as far back as the beginning of August.
Shopping for school products and office supplies at mid July to the first of August is a good idea. Stock up for the entire year. Kids will always need new notebooks and such. If they use binders, then buy enough paper to last all the kids in your family for a year. (I still occasionally buy school supplies when on sale for those who forget or can't afford it later on in the year when not on sale.)
For people in business, these stores like Target and Wal Mart have copier paper at this time cheaper than any time of the year. This is a good way for new businesses to get pens, pencils, white out, copier paper, paper clips, folders, etc. for the office. For groceries, the store brands mostly are manufactured by the same company that did the name brand especially in canned good goods and packages. Do not buy stuff near the sale by date unless you are going to use it that day or put it in the freezer. It will not keep in the refrigerator before going bad. You can safely use eggs up to 6 weeks after sell date expires as long as they are refrigerated at least 42 degrees. The best by date on milk is the last date on milk that is safe to use.
How many people have canned food that you bought and then you doctor tells you that you have to eat differently? We need to go through our canned foods and what we are not eating within 2 to 3 months, give it to someone who is having a hard time who doesn't get SNAP benefits. If they have kids, this will greatly help. Always ask before you give though.
