Thrifty Thursday -- Watching the Scanner
When I was younger and would go grocery shopping with my mom, she would always closely watch the grocery store checkout scanner. I thought she was crazy -- I just trusted that the cashier was ringing things up correctly. Mom was right, though. She would catch mistakes all the time. Her savings were proof enough for me.
Now I watch the scanner, too, and frequently catch mistakes. Just last week I was over rang by $5 in one shopping trip. Over-rings like that could add up fast! It doesn't happen every time I'm at the store, but it happens often enough to make me to pay attention.
If you watch closer, I'm sure you'll notice an occasional mis-rang item, too!
