With the economy in such a dire state, I have to save money any way I can.
The first step was not going out to eat except for on a special occasion.
When I crunched the numbers for my monthly budget, I was shocked at how much money I spent going out for food and drinks. One beer at the bar costs as much as a six-pack at the store, so I had to cut way back on going out for stuff like that. Another way I started to save money was doing price comparisons between the local medical cannabis dispensaries, and keeping my eye out for sales and bargains. No one ever thinks about value-shopping for medical cannabis, but it has been saving me at least a hundred dollars a month! The key to saving money on medical cannabis is to not be too choosy. I used to only buy certain strains of medical cannabis, but I have learned how to open my mind to new products. In the past I never would have bought a six pack of cannabis drinks, but they were on sale for 75% off so I took a chance. After one sip I realized why they were on sale – the cannabis drinks tasted like dirty pond water! On the other hand, they got me really stoned. I have also learned to appreciate vape products, because there always seem to be a host of vape carts on the sales table. I miss smoking the high end medical cannabis like Purple Haze or Blue Dream, but at least I’m saving money.
