Shop With Reusable Bags and Save Cash

After I wrote the blog post noting how PriceRite does not give out free plastic bags for your purchases, I heard about two other stores in the Rochester area that have started promotions to reduce the amount of plastic bags used.  Both Wegmans and CVS are using the carrot rather than stick approach to get shoppers to bring their own reusable bags.  And both promotions will save you cash!

Should You Fill Out Consumer Product Surveys?

Today I opened my mailbox to find an official looking envelope containing the “Official Consumer Product Survey of America.”  For a few minutes of my time, it promises me “valuable money saving coupons” and “free samples” – not just “meager cents-off coupons” based on my responses to the survey.  About every six months or so I get one of these and wonder whether it’s really worth it to fill them out.  Are they just harvesting my information to send me unwanted advertisements or will I really get some value out of it?   More...
