Snuff Puts Money Back in Your Pocket
Despite the common saying that "money does not buy happiness," it has been my experience and observation that "a lack of money definitely brings unhappiness." It is difficult to deny that being able to pay one's bills makes one happy. Or that being able to buy food and entertainment in its various forms can certainly make one happy. Money pays for your children's clothes, their after-school activities, books, tablets, doctor's appointments, orthodontics, and stability and security. How would money not naturally lead to a better chance at happiness. In a commercialized world where money equals comfort and freedom in our capitalist culture, that old clunker of a common saying about money may be missing the point a little.
Let's get to the point. Snuff is cheap. Really, snuff is dirt cheap when compared to other tobacco products. Even for the biggest snuffy sniffer, a little ground tobacco goes a long way. I currently have about $80 invested in snuff. Maybe as much as a $100. I have enough snuff to last me literally 2 to 3 years of constant snuffing, even factoring in the gradual increase in consumption I'm going to experience over the next 2 to 3 years. Even "expensive" snuff goes a long way for very little money. There are only so many little pinches you can fit up your nose in a day, and there are a lot of pinches in a tin of snuff.
Don't get me wrong. It is tempting, and it would be easy enough, to spend hundreds of dollars on nasal snuff in an attempt to try all the various kinds of snuff you are curious about. It would be easy indeed to drop some serious cash on a proper snuff collection with brands and flavors from all over the world. But, in a true comparison of cents per use, dollars per dose, snuff is immensely reasonable in price. Someone switching from cigarettes to snuff would save piles of money in a very short amount of time. Someone choosing snuff and vaping, would be money ahead making snuff their habit of choice. Chew, dip, and snus are more expensive than snuff as well.
So, enjoy yourself frugal snuff-taker! Cherish the $3 tin of snuff that you are still pinching out of a month later. Delight in the $5 tin of snuff that begins to prove itself nearly bottomless as part of your snuff rotation. Count your blessings and your pennies, as your snuff habit puts money back in your pocket.
