...can hurt you.
I was talking to a young friend awhile back who was getting WIC supplements for her children. She mentioned that they gave her a lot of canned evaporated milk.
"The only way I know how to use it is to make fudge!"
Oh, my. After enlightening her as to the real identity of canned milk (it's milk), I began to wonder how many other people don't know what to do with evaporated milk. Or clotheslines. Or dishpans. Or...
What you don't know can be painful to your money situation. There may be more important things than how to use evaporated milk, but the more you know, the more you can save.
Do you know what's the best deductible for your automobile insurance?
Do you know how much filler is in your laundry detergent?
Do you know that your printer ink cartridge is not empty when your computer tells you it is?
Not knowing those things costs us money. What we don't know can hurt us.
