I dislike going to the grocery store, but when I go, I choose to go to a small Kroger store just up the road from my house. It is not a large store, but it has what I normally need, and I know the layout of the products.
That is not to say that they don’t switch things up between my bi-monthly visits. However, I can still usually negotiate the aisles, and don’t have too much wasted time.
What frustrates me is the ‘sales’ Yesterday, I went to the check out counter, and noticed that Kroger had my husband’s cinnamon Altoids. I also noticed that the items were on ‘sale’. The sale price was ‘buy one/get one free.’ The price of one was $2.35 or so (don’t have my receipt to hand, but I know it was over $2.00) Normally the price of the mints is about $1.35, or even $.99 at the dollar store. I bought a few anyway, as I love my husband, and he is worth the overage, but I resent the BOGO offer.
Kroger, just want you to know that I KNOW I paid for the second box of mints. The sale price was more than DOUBLE the price of a single tin of Altoids regular size mints. Just want you to know that I know……
Until next time,
