Getting your money's worth

Hello fellow web surfers, today I think I'll spout off about value. Everyone loves a good deal, even animals will go after an easier-to-reach piece of fruit first, because they would expend less energy to snag it. Animals are all about energy conservation ( I think our dogs are saving up for a marathon.) I'm sure a lot of you have seen the picture of the Grizzly standing in a stream catching salmon as they jump. That bear is a genius, letting the fish do all the work of catching themselves.
I'm sure that any fisherman who found a spot where fish actually did jump into his boat would find any excuse to go back again and again.
That's a good example of value, or, getting the most return for the least effort. Back to the gas station analogy: why would you buy gas at station X when station Y is a couple blocks further and has gas for 5 cents less per gallon. What's 5 cents you ask? Well, if you have a 20 gallon gas tank, that's a dollar every time you fill up, and if you fill up every day like a lot of people, that's $365 a year. Maybe that's a car payment, or two electric bills, three cable bills, even more than a week's gross pay at $8 an hour. You get the picture.
There's deals out there, there's real value out there, so don't be afraid to shop around, it will usually pay off before it's time to hibernate.
