Ever have shopping trips that feel pretty much like a bust? That was my shopping trip at Dillon’s (Kroger affiliate) today.
I stopped by because I was hoping to pick up some of the free Veggie Chips. But alas, the Veggie Chips were priced at $2.99 (if I’m remembering correctly. Whatever it was, it was definitely not $0.99!). I’m hoping maybe they go on sale tomorrow when the new ad comes out?
In addition, I was hoping to pick up some $0.99 Finish Powerball Tabs. But the Finish was on the very top shelf and all the ones with peelies on them were at the very back of the shelf and impossible for a short person like me to reach.
I thought about asking for someone to help me, but there were no tall people in sight and I hated to flag down someone at the store to get them for me just so I could get the ones with peelies on them… since there were plenty without peelies on right within easy reach. I guess I have limits as to what I’ll do for the sake of saving money — especially if it involves a little bit of a strange request from a store worker.
But I did find the Rice Dream priced at $2.29 and I still had the $2/1 coupons. I know it’s supposed to be free at Walmart and that you can make your own Homemade Rice Milk for pennies, but I was planning to use rice milk in the Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free waffles tonight, so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to pick them up. And then at least my trip wasn’t entirely in vain.
Sometimes, my shopping trips don’t turn out like I plan, but that’s okay. One good thing is that the not-so-good shopping trips make the great shopping trips seem even better!
