Saturday and a nice rainy one, for sitting inside and contemplating. Glad I did my shopping yesterday.
Sav-Mart is an interesting place to shop. I guess each store has its "gimmicks", and Sav-Mart's is that it has two prices for everything: "Regular Price" and "Sale" price. (Since it is always on "sale" doesn't that make it the "regular" price?)
Then at check out you are given three totals: the regular total, the price you pay today, and the amount you have saved by shopping today, you lucky stiff.
Anyway, yesterday I paid these "sale" prices for a few familiar items.
One banana... sale price 30 cents
One huge grapefruit.. sale price... $1.50 (and worth it)
One normal grapefruit sale price .99 (also worth it)
One small avocado sale price .50 (bargain)
Altogether I bought about nineteen dollars worth of stuff, mostly containing vitamin C for cold fighting purposes. By spending $19, I "saved" $ 5.12, or, as also printed on my receipt... 22%.
Hooray for the "gimmick" sales prices at Sav-Mart.
