Many moons ago, shopping around for the best deals was a laborious task. As a little girl, I used to accompany my grandpa on his bargain excursions. Mind you, this was about 30 years ago when online shopping didn’t exist. Comparison shopping meant a small pad of paper, pencil, a full tank of gas and a lot of determination. My grandpa had this nailed down to a science. I remember when he bought the Intellivision. Only a few stores had this game console for sale. He visited each store, took the small pad of paper out of his shirt pocket, wrote down the price and proceeded to the next store. This is what he did for big ticket items. When all was said and done, he went to the store offering the best price and made his purchase.
