Hello everyone…today has been an awesome day for me. I was able to get my Bible Study done, read a little about business management, workout at the Community Center, check out some empty offices downtown Elkton, and clean the house up. All before my husband got home from work!
Let me tell you about the best deal today though. Not a big deal to some of you I am sure, but it was wonderful to us!
Before I begin though I need to let you know some history on my husband…he is frugal. He will buy generic brands all the time, he will always buy the specials and he hates to spend money in the grocery store. So I just let him go alone when he is willing to go…saves a lot of arguments that way. I am a name brand shopper. I like Bounty, Green Giant, Charmin, etc, etc. I think they do a better job for you. Now onto the story!
Johnny went to the Foodlion, you know the one. It has MVP buys. The only time I shop there is when they are running really great MVP specials, otherwise I just go to the local IGA store for meats and WalMart for dry goods. Anyways…when he walked in there was a huge display of cereal. All of those really sugary, really bad for you, but really good ones. Fruit Loops, Apple Jacks, Corn Pops, Frosted Bite Size Mini Wheats. Yum, yum, yum. Now these normally run about $3.50 to $4.00 a box, so we never buy them, only the off brand ones once in a while, certainly not all the time because we would just eat the crap out of them!
Anyways…on with the story. The cereals have a really great deal on them…buy one get one free…so two boxes for like $3.52. Great deal…but it gets better…
There is a coupon on each box for $1.00 off (but only one coupon per customer). So now we have 2 boxes of this sugary cereal for $2.52! Wonderful Deal! But it gets better…
There is a coupon on the shelf where the cereal is for a free dozen of eggs with the purchase of any two boxes of Kellogg’s cereal! Any size eggs, any brand. So Johnny comes home with a carton of Jumbo, Food Lion Eggs that are normally about $3.40/dz. So for $2.68 he came home with 2 boxes of sugary cereal and 1 dz jumbo off brand eggs! Now folks, that is a deal you can’t beat, even if he did HAVE to get the off brand eggs.
To top it off…when Johnny got home and told me about it, I went and did the same thing. The only difference was that I got X-large, Brown, Organic eggs with a name brand! They normally are $4.12 a dz.!
We considered going again tomorrow, but we decided it wouldn’t be right to be greedy. : ()
Hope you enjoy today’s images:
1) Just a butterfly on a weed in the field. There is even a little moth looking thing on the flower to the right. Did you see him too? I didn’t, not until after I got the image on the the computer. Cool
2) These next 2 are jus tof the barn in the front yard. I sorta like it, as you can tell. Can’t hardly wiat to have some customers to take down there and pose them against it!
3) This is our newest addition to the family. It was about the only way that Johnny could get me to agree to mow the yard! I love mowing now, but so does he and Jesse!
4) Just a self portrait, doing what I love to do!
