Re: These kind of ideas go back a long way
"Spend a few seconds planning and you may be able to do it a lot cheaper - but that does of course depend on your normal habits and where you'll be."
Exactly right. I always combine trips whenever possible. My friends and I query each other if we are going to the grocery in case somebody needs one or two things. We also do this if we are headed some kms down the road to the next town to hit the big box store. A good friend has a ute so if I need something that isn't going to fit in my econobox, I can ride with him and get free delivery. Bonus.
