"What the heck... I'll give it a try!"

"I have to say I'm so glad I purchased your DebtIntoWealth System! It sounded good, so I figured 'what the heck,' I'll give it a try. My goal was to pay off $5000 in credit card debt and a car loan... It worked! It's now 9 months later and ALL of my debt is paid off..."

#1. AN INTERVIEW WITH A DOLLAR STORE MANAGER
Inventory changes often

I talked for half an hour with the manager of a local dollar store. She told me that the much of what she sells is close-out and remaindered products. Her estimate was that about a third of the inventory was consistently the same brand and products while two-thirds changed.

This means that while the store will always have a sock section, for example, the brand and style of socks might be quite different from month to month.

TIP: If you see a good deal at a dollar store, snap it up. You may never see it again. Ask the manager if it is a regular item they always stock or a close-out item not likely to be on their shelves again.

Because their inventory changes so often, it really pays to walk around the store each time to check for new or unusual items. It is also worthwhile to visit the store once or twice a month because the inventory may be quite different.

TIP: If you see a good deal on something you use a lot of (like light bulbs), stock up. Last month I bought 12 florescent lights for $1 apiece because the same product was selling at a home improvement store for over $3. I stocked up because I knew that the lights would never go bad, I would use them all eventually and they would save me a lot of energy.

#2. CHANGE YOUR SMOKE ALARM BATTERIES
Don't risk your life with old batteries


With the time change, it is time to change all your smoke alarm batteries. At a local dollar store I can buy Panasonic 9 volt square batteries for about $1.50 apiece. Even if the existing battery works in your detector, replace it. Use the old battery for other, less important devices like some TV remotes. Don't risk your life to save a few bucks -- smoke detectors are too important.

#3. START CHRISTMAS SHOPPING NOW
Get ahead of the holiday madness


Using the tips mentioned earlier in this newsletter, start visiting you local dollar store between now and Thanksgiving. Stock up on little gifts, cards, paper, decorations, candles, incense, decorative boxes, calendars, kitchen utensils and favors for the holiday season. Do this now before Thanksgiving when the shelves will be cleaned out in days. Before Thanksgiving you will still have a wide choice and also you will get ahead of the game by doing much of your shopping early.
