"Third, when buying, shop. Don't get
into hard and fast habits or buying in
certain places. The man who can give
the best bargain today may not be able
to give you the best bargain tomorrow.
This is because his supply fluctuates both
in quality and price. If you go to him
tomorrow out of habit without inquiring
elsewhere and take what he gives you,
you will not get so good a bargain. This
is not because he is taking advantage of
you. He is probably doing tomorrow the
best he can for you, and he fails short
simply because he Is unable to give, you
such a good bargain. Thia is not hi"
fault, and is no reflection on him that
the advantages he can offer are not so
good as on other days. Rut you owe It
to yourself to go where you can get the
best values for your money.
