Went shopping without a calculator and got pretty confused.
Hearing aid batteries at the hearting aid dealer were 16 for 18 dollars. No tax, dunno why. Then compared price at Long's Drug store with 7.5% sales tax, 4 for $4.99 or 8 for $8.99. I think I got the best buy, but I am not sure. Furthermore using two batteiries at a time, one for each aid, and each pair lasts for three and half weeks, how long will the 16 last me? I have no idea.
A friend handed me an empty box of 6 Pepcid tablets and asked I could get some for him, and "If it is not too much more, get a larger box." Well, without knowing how much is "too much more" I went looking. Six for $4.99. And 12 for $6.99. But I bought him 30 for $9.99. He was happy.
What made me happy was a special on sardines. 69 cents for a tin of sardines is good price. They cost 99 cents at the 99 cent store and that is supposed to be a big discount. But the 69 cent sardines were HALF OFF. They knocked 35 cents off the can of sardines. At 34 cents per can I bought three.
I had one can for lunch as I wrote this entry. That is lunch for 34 cents. No wonder I am happy.
I bought 8 paper mate pens for 99 cents. You can't flic your Bic at that.
