If you're currently a college student or ever have been, you know the true meaning of "investing in your future". They're not kidding... it sure is a hefty investment.
I have the luxury of being able to start out at a community college to get my associate's and get all my prerequisites done for the nursing program I'll end up choosing. But still, I'm paying for all my schooling - whether that's with the [little] help of financial aid or taking out student loans that ultimately accrue too much interest, I'm doing it. I can't complain, I have my parent's roof to live under, they help me with gas money, and they're very supportive of whatever my dreams are. It's the least I could do after all these years they've spent [time & money wise] on me.
Anyways! Back to the subject of this blog post. This may seem like a small expense, but I needed some sticky notes for marking important things on pages of my A&P (Anatomy & Physiology) book. So last Thursday, I stopped by my school's bookstore and picked up a pack of Post-It brand sticky flags. Ya know, the skinny ones you put on the edge of the pages. They were only $2.79, so not bad, right?
The next day I was at my boyfriend's house. His mom came home and said she had bought this awesome pack of different size sticky notes from Family Dollar for us to use for studying. I was shocked by how much was in the package and asked how much they were. Her response?
$2.00 - yup, two dollars even.
I was shocked... and that's what brought on this blog post! So below are a couple pictures of both sets... you be the judge of the better value!
Ultimately, I'm so much more excited to use the valuable kit bought from Family Dollar than the plain old pack bought from my school store. End of story.
I hope you guys enjoyed this different kind of blog post - let me know if these random "day-in-the-life" kind of posts appeal to you and you'd like to see more! ^_^
Remember to have a positive day! :)
P.S. I plan on returning the Post-It notes I bought from my school store. ;)
