Find Alternate Sources for Goods to Save Money

I'm always on the lookout for easy ways to save money. One handy way to save is to find the cheapest place to buy something. Here's a great example:

I'm addicted to Lipton's bottled sweetened ice tea. A bottle of the stuff costs $1.59 at our local grocer. But I found out that our school bookstore sells it for $1.25. Isn't that a steal?

The ironic thing is that you'd normally assume goods to be cheaper at the grocery store. In this case, that's not true.

The moral of the story is clear: shop around for the lowest price.
