Last week when my dad was here, I was able to squeeze in a check-up at the dentist's office. (Since I've written on that recently, I will share that it was overall a good report, considering I'd not been in 3 years! I have no cavities, but my teeth do show considerable wear from grinding at night. I was proud--for the first time ever--to say that I've been flossing regularly!)
Anyways, the dentist's office is in a neighboring town, and there is a bakery down the road. When I'm over there, I like to stop in and check out their day-old rack. They usually have nice bread and other goodies marked down to 80 cents a package. I was perusing the rack next to a couple of other people, and my eye drifted to the bottom shelf, where I saw this:
I did a double-take because it looked to me like this enormous bag of bread cost just $1.75. I quickly grabbed the large package and hauled it over to the counter. The clerk confirmed that the price was accurate, and I could barely contain my excitement at such a bargain!
When I got home, I spread everything out on the counter, and being the nerd that I am, I even pulled out my calculator to add up the original sticker prices of each item. I ended up with about $25 worth of bread, including the exact kind of buns I'd intended to purchase in the first place. Since we have a deep freezer, we have plenty of space to store these goodies until their time is right!
Have any of you found a fun bargain lately? I'd love to hear!
