You might be asking yourself WHY?
I sometimes ask myself the same thing.
I bought them because they were free.
A couple of weeks ago David and I stopped at a Hy-Vee store and I saw a wall full of these bags, on clearance for 50-cents each, marked down from $2.19. I knew I had a few $1 off 2 coupons in my coupon box and ended up getting 6 of them totally free. Then I hopped online and found a seller on eBay that had 20 of the same coupons for $1.49 with free shipping, and I bought them. (so, yes, I did pay $1.49 for 40 boxes, but I’ll be selling them for $1 each at my garage sale, for a profit of $38) Then today the girls and I were in that same town so I stopped to see if the bags were still there. They were. I loaded up my cart with 40 boxes, then hunted the aisles for any other super deals. Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Cheerios were on sale for $1.50 a box. Cinnamon Toast Crunch is one of the kid’s favorites. I had 10 50-cents coupons, so got 10 boxes of cereal for $10. The one box of Cheerios I got was only 50-cents off after the $1 coupon I had. Fuze drinks were on sale for $1 each. I normally don’t buy these but they are low in sugar and a nice treat for a hot day. They were 25-cents each after my 75-cents coupons.
My girls had fun at the Salvation Army thrift store, where Katie found a darling monkey themed billfold and a purse that looked brand new. Emily found a big purse in the 25-cents bin and a couple shirts. I found… more books for 12/$1, several that looked brand new. Emily, at 14, is a really smart shopper. Her aunt Julie gave her a gift card for $20 for her birthday. That girl filled a huge bag with that gift card, concentrating on the $1, $2 and $3 racks. She came home with one pair of shoes (the highest priced item), 3 belts, 2 pairs of sunglasses, two dresses, and a couple shirts, all for $20. Wonder where she learned to shop like that? :o)
