Scout bag road trip!

I am about to drive an hour each way to pick up my delivery of scout bags.
This, to save $70 in shipping. 

Hmmm, is is worth it? 

I think so, although my time is money these days. However I can rationalize that I will be able to do some phone work in the car.

What would you do, 
suck it up and pay the shipping or give up an afternoon to save a few bucks?

I would 100% drive to get them. Your right, it is a little down time, and you can work on the phone like you said. (just drive careful!) I think I want the Large zip bag for the boat, but I want to go over them one more time. I love the coolers too! Oh my the choices....

I am always into saving money.
My father has been said to say that my husband and I squeeze a nickel our of a penny.
We aren't cheap we just look for the best use of our money.
$70.00 in shipping is a lot of money.

I agree enjoy some music and or do phone calls etc.. $70 goes along way today!

If it were me, I would drive, BUT I wouldn't save much because I would have to stop and eat, stop at that cool store on the way, probably shop a bit because, well, I am there already, so why not?

Though the time alone is worth WAY more than $70 :)

(if nothing else, you are saving $35 an hour :)

I see my opinion differs from my Comment buddies. I personally would pay the shipping because I feel your time is more valuable.

Hugs to all!! xoxo

I'm with you drive to save the $70. I didn't have to drive asmfar, but I managed to save myself $80 by driving to pick up something then have it delivered to the house.
