How a pack of gum saved me $10

November 30th, 2008 at 06:51 am

I stopped by Fred Meyer's tonight as I wasn't going to have any other time this weekend to do some clothes shopping. I needed to get a couple pairs of workout pants as the ones I currently am using are pretty worn out and really shouldn't be worn outside the home. Smile I have decided to start walking on my lunch breaks since my work clothes are starting to not fit so well anymore. So I need another pair that I can leave at work during the week.

I lucked out in that the ones I found that fit were on sale 30% off ending today. When I went to check out I opted to not do UScan because it's rather annoying to do clothing through it. Of course while waiting in line I saw the gum and remembered that I wanted to get some more.

When it came to be my turn, the total came to just under $50 and the cashier asked if I wanted to get a second pack of gum since if I spent $50 then she had a coupon for $10 off. So I did. Which made me fell better about my purchase since even with 30% off I was a little over budget.

    Nice of the cashier to ask! So many times, they act as if they'd rather you DIDN'T get a good deal.

    Very cool. As much as possible, i also walk on my lunch hour for exercise. I always gain a few pounds in winter, and i weigh enough as it is, so unless it's raining or just too cold, I'm out there for a good 50 minutes.

    I really like Fred Meyer, especially their 2 for 1 sales. We don't have them in CA but I go when we're in ID.
