Centsible Saver: Bargains go beyond books at the public library
My favorite bookstore is the public library.
Over the years, I figure I’ve saved hundreds of dollars by borrowing rather than buying.
Worst-case scenario, I pay the fine – 10 cents a day, up to $2, the maximum fine for an overdue book in Wake County, where I live.
A steal of a deal.
