A bargain is a bargain after all

For some intents and purposes [though not all] DH is a bargain hunter. His favorite bargains are after-holiday candy sales and last night he found the Momma of all price-slashing.

I sent him out for orange juice and he came back from the store with seventy-five [yep, 75!] Cadbury Creme Eggs. They were on sale for $0.12 a piece.

What we're going to do with 75 Creme Eggs [besides eat them until we hate Creme Eggs] I don't know. Easter is over. We can't give them in baskets and we have no one who will believe the Easter Bunny came back a week later to drop off his leftovers at our house.

The bottom of the receipt from the store lists DH's savings - of which he's extremely proud. He saved $74.52! [Can you believe these little eggs cost over $1.00 a piece a week ago?]

It's good to know we have $74.52 in our pockets that would have gone to Creme Eggs [sasrcasm mode here] Maybe we can use that money toward a gym membership.

OMG my teeth hurt just imagining 75 eggs! Good thing you just took the kids to the dentist, lol.

And on top of saving all that money ;) he DID remember to buy the orange juice. So his halo is very shiny today. LOL.
