SC vs. WM . . .

I spent part of the morning going through our new prescriptions, comparing Sam’s Club Extra Value List prices with WalMart’s $4 / $10 List, and Sam’s Club won out.

In fact, using Sam’s Club over WM directly saves $44 a month. And that’s just for drugs on both lists. And when you figure in Sam’s Club EV List prices against WM’s regular non-list prices, the gap becomes even bigger, approaching $70 per month.

Of course to get the SC’s Extra List drug prices, you have to be a PLUS member, which is an $30 upgrade to the regular $69 membership. So for $30 a year I get to save ~ $70 a month.

Sounds like a really good deal to me.

I spent the rest of the morning/afternoon working on a new website for a client, and correcting spelling errors. I started with this.

And after a little correcting, touching up, and brightening, I had this.

Tom 1

I also had a question about the spelling of ‘collectables’, but although the ‘I’ version is used more, either way is acceptable. (Or maybe it’s ‘acceptible’.)

Last week I was talking with my client about the cars we’ve owned. (he owns two Studebaker Avanti’s)


In talking about this I realized I had lost track of a few of ours, so Jan and I talked it over and finally came up with this list.

For dinner tonight I whipped up another batch of my Veggie Soup, but added some grilled chicken breast and more carrots this time. Really good.

Tomorrow it’s back to work.
