You're Paying Too Much
I just came across this article on the biggest retail rip-offs on the CBS news site. The list: movie popcorn, wine in restaurants, prescription drugs, coffee and pre-cut fruits and veggies.
I always figured that many of these items were overpriced (movie popcorn in particular), but the estimated markups were really astounding. Twenty-five to 30 percent more for someone else to chop up your broccoli? I readily admit that I am lazy -- and a total sucker for that prewashed organic salad-in-a-box-- but honestly prepping your veggies yourself seems like an easy way to shave some cents off your grocery bill.
Now, wine with dinner ... That is a whole other level of sacrifice! (It's usually at least cheaper than those pomegranate martinis, right?)
