I’d love to be able to shop around for the best price always, but sometimes there isn’t enough time in the day! Let’s be honest, I’d much rather be hanging out with my kids than price shopping. Or enjoying that big cup of coffee that keeps me going. I’d just rather not price shop.
I received a list of items that are cheaper on Educents, (one of my favorite online stores for educational resources) than on Amazon. I was shocked to find some items were $100 cheaper on Educents than Amazon. So, of course I wanted to share this time-and-money-saving list with you!
