Kentucky Consumers, Do You Count Your Change—and Your Pills?

When you get change back after paying for your purchases in a Kentucky grocery store, do you count it? Or do you figure, “Eh, it’s only a few cents”?

If, when you exit the store and head for your car, you see a limo pass by, you might think, “I’ll bet he (or she) never counts change”; and you may be right. But I’ll bet long before that person could afford a limo, he (or she) counted every penny in change—maybe even picked up coins on the sidewalk.

The bottom line is, someone who is careful with money is more likely to have more of it eventually.

Now, when you get your prescriptions from the pharmacy, do you examine—and count—your pills? This fastidious habit could save you from some discomfort, if not save your life. At the very least, it could save you a bit of money if you find that you have received fewer pills than the scrip stated.

It pays to be careful when you take any medication, particularly prescriptions. A pill that is just a slightly different size, shape, or color may be a drug that treats a completely different condition. If the liquid medication that the pharmacist mixed for you is somewhat thicker than you remember it being the last time you took it, question it! Take the medication back to the pharmacist and get peace of mind.

Aren’t your life and well-being worth the effort?
