Since your last post, I thought of the 6 P's rule. Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance. I like to research things before hand, and have saved time and money on it. However, that does not come into play with pretty girls. You can plan all you want, and it may never happen, or the last three P's come into play even if you concentrate on the first three.

Ditto here. I check prices at half a dozen places before purchasing something, if at all possible. I sometimes come across better items for a couple bucks more during my searches, or turn up bad lots to avoid when I do shop. It's definitely worth my while to do.
Ain't dat da trufe?
