Meijer trip

So Meijer has a deal going on this week where if you buy $15 of participating General Mills products, you get a coupon for $10 off your next shopping order. The $15 is before coupons, so it’s really not that difficult to get your bill under $10, qualifying it as a moneymaker.

So I’m there after work this afternoon, and Carolyn and the kiddoes are meeting me there. I got there first and have the cart filled up, but I was waiting to check out in case we had any weekly groceries that we needed. In the cart were 3 orders. Each one had $15 of groceries, 7 $1 off coupons, meaning that I would make $2 on each order.

So I’m waiting out by the entrance for the rest of the fam, and I think “Hey I should go outside and see if they’re here yet and see if I can help unload the kids and such.” I start to go outside and realize I haven’t paid for my groceries yet, so I had to stop.

But then I think, actually, if Meijer were smart, they would just LET me walk out without paying for my groceries. That actually would SAVE them $6! :-D

In any case they soon showed up and I “paid” for my groceries.

    And don’t forget the 5 containers of Edy’s ice cream we got. I could have paid 25 dollars, but instead I thought it would be fun to pay zero. Let’s hear it for free ice cream coupons!

    P.S. I miss you.
