Yes, I am blonde

Today I was very thankful that I married the man I did. He is quite good at helping me make my way through this confusing world.
Yes, I am a blond, and yes I see the world a little differently.
I went into a bread outlet store in our town hoping to find some good deals. We go through a loaf a day and with prices the way they are now, I was looking for some good bread at a good deal. And I found it! These loaves I bought are usually about $2 on sale at the grocery store. I found them at the outlet for $1! I piled almost a dozen loaves in my cart - I was pretty excited to see that price; but a little voice inside said, "Why? Why are they so 'cheap'?" I couldn't see anything wrong with them. And I looked!
I overheard some of the stockers talking about 09 and 10 ... so I decided to check the little tag, knowing there was expiration info on it. When I saw the 09, I thought .. well, they don't look old. I went ahead with the transaction, and brought them home ... thinking, how am I going to explain this to my husband. When i got home I prefaced my spending story to G. with the news of exceptional prices on the bread! And then I told him they weren't moldy even if they are a few years old.
Yeah, years. I though the 09 was for the year. Not the date. My dear husband had to point that one out to me.

  1. We shop the day old bread all the time and find that good orowheat bread at such a good price. Tastes just the same. And we freeze and just take out what we need.

    And have you priced eggs???? Winco had 12 eggs for $1.84 last week - today I was in Roth's and on sale, 12 eggs were $2.79. Yikes - what happened??? Good luck feeding a family.
