This week was Meijer's "buy 10 get the 11th item free" week. There are pros and cons to this sale. I feel like I HAVE to buy 10 things or it isn't worth the 11th item but more times than not I ended up with one item over OR one item under because I grabbed the wrong item (Did that tonight!) There are some great deals to be had but you have to check the original prices. I picked up some of those Handi-Snacks (Cheese and Crackers) for $1.00 a piece and they normally run $2.17 but they also had a few other things for $1.00 that were either $1.00 normally OR were less than $1.00.
Throw in all of the above with the fact that it is pouring outside, my sidewalk has water covering it that covered the tops of my shoes, my garage is becoming a swimming pool, and I really didn't want to go to the store tonight and I'll chalk this one up as a "better luck next week" kind of week :-) I must add that I wish this rain was snow - when there is still 6-8 inches of snow in my yard, the last thing I want is rain because the only place for it to go is my sidewalk, garage, or please no . . my basement (none yet!!) Sorry all of you snow haters but this rain is a nightmare right now. It needed to wait until the snow melted :-(
So on that note - I'll enjoy my Chocolate Haagen-Dazs Ice cream I got for a buck ( a whole whoppin' 3.6 oz!) and relax for a few before hitting the hay!!
