How often do we go into a service station and come out with more than we went in for?
Next time you go to a servo, just sit there and observe the people coming out of the store. You will be surprised at how many people buy extras. All these extras are marked up by huge percentages. This is where they make their money.
Now one way we can save money is by not buying these extras, out of habit. Just think about what we buy !!!!!! This doesn't mean we can't have a treat every now and again. Buy what you would, in the service station, from a supermarket and you will save a lot of money.
What is a good price to pay?
One way to work this out is by comparing what you are paying for an item, to what you earn by the hour. If a 600ml bottle of soft drink is 3 dollars and you earn 15 dollars an hour then is 5 bottles of soft drink what you are worth ? Or are they over priced. I know we live in a society where convenience is a way of life, but the only people who benefit from this are the big corporations. So make the effort to take a drink from home and you will see the financial rewards.
