Kroger had fooled me before, and I was sure they were trying to do it again. But I grabbed the bag anyway, telling myself that it was at least worth a price check.
And so with a week's worth of groceries being bagged, I handed over the 12-ounce package of chia seeds that were stocked above a closeout tag -- marked down from $15.99 to $5.99.
"How much are these?" I asked the kind cashier who made no fuss that Miles was programming commands for the Death Star from the credit card machine.
"$5.99. Do you want them?"
Why, yes. Yes, I do.
And so began my weekend of bargains. Also on my trip to Kroger, I scored to Lara Uber bars for $1.25 total - on sale plus coupon. Glad I got the bars on sale, too, because I wasn't enamored with them.
A trip to the meat market garnered Chobani Flips for 50 cents each and Fage 0% Blueberry for the same price.
A trip to the mall during last weekend's heat wave had me spying on some obnoxious workout shorts at Gap on clearance. I couldn't quite bring myself to buy them ... until Saturday when clearance was an additional 40 percent off. Two pairs of offensively bright shorts for $15? Don't mind if I do.
The clincher, though, was at Children's Place. I normally buy Miles' clothes at the thrift store but 60 percent off clearance + a 25 percent coupon made me reconsider. We grabbed two T-shirts and these adorable shades, which ended up being 75 cents.
So. Worth. It.
