I know it is a little melodramatic to characterize how we spend our money as a moment of impact, but for every dollar we let slip out of our fingers we are that much worse off when retirement decisions roll around!
We had heard that Barley Grass Powder is great diet supplement for your digestion and your overall metabolism, so we bought a 250 gram bottle of Sunny Green Barley Grass Powder from Down to Earth Nutrition Center in Roswell, New Mexico. The price of the 250 gram bottle of chlorophyll enriched powder was $27.99. The price sounded way high to me, but we wanted to check out the taste and effectiveness of the substance before purchasing in quantity.
We did like the Barley Powder, but were not willing to give the Mom and Pop Store in Roswell almost 30 dollars a bottle for the stuff! Found a place online that sold it for 12 dollars a bottle and would ship it for free for orders of $50 or higher.
I really don’t know how places like Down to Earth Nutrition Center stay in business. They have a friendly staff, but the online health supplement places have markdowns of close to 70%. The sales receipt you see says ” We hope you’ll come back soon!”, but we definitely will not go back there until they get their prices more Down To Earth!
