Last time I went to the market for tomato juice and pineapple juice, I was trying to economize. Juice is more convenient in plastic bottles than cans. Cans have to be punched open with a can opener, and the juice has to be transferred to bottles anyway. You cannot tell how much remains in an opened can. But juice in cans is cheaper... or so I thought.
So I bought four 46 oz cans of juice and lugged them home in my scooter. Each can cost $2,08.
At home I opened one can of tomato juice and poured it into an empty juice bottle for storage. Hmm. A can of juice doesn't fill the empty bottle. Aha... the bottles are two quart bottles.
Two quarts of juice costs $2.49. I had passed on the more costly juice, but there is more of it in a bottle than a can.
I had outsmarted myself again. I had bought the less convenient cans to save a few cents, but the juice is CHEAPER in the handy bottles that I had really wanted.
How dumb can you get?
