Leaving home to go to the store, or the supermarket — or the pharmacy — not only takes time out of one’s day, but it usually costs money too. If you take a vehicle to get there, you have to pay for the gasoline that makes it go. Or, you take mass transit and pay for that ride — either a train or a bus. If you take a cab, well, that’s probably even more money.
