Money-Saving Terms: $2/2 or 2/$6

Have you seen the strange-looking fractions on some of the money-saving blog sites? Many bloggers list the weekly sales at different stores, and they are kind enough to list the coupons right along with the items that are on sale. Some people list those coupons as $2/2. What does that mean? It means the coupon is good for $2 off 2 items. You will have to buy 2 of the item in order to use the coupon.

The fraction 2/$6 is a little different. This means that the cost of 2 items is $6. Remember, most stores don't make you buy both items to get the $3-each price. Be sure to ask about the store's policy before you buy.

I hope this gives you a whole new twist on fractions!
