Here's an example. Last week I shopped some sales and made a complete dinner for two for about $1.50. Don't believe me? Here's the math:
3 chicken drumsticks @ .68/lb = $0.84
2 ears of corn @ .10/ea = $0.20
1/2 bag steak fries @ $0.79/bag = $0.39
TOTAL = $1.43
I couldn't believe it myself, and it was a delicious meal! I guess you could throw in a few cents for a glass of milk each and some BBQ sauce, but this is still some fantastic savings. Sometimes doing the math is helpful to remind me that it pays to take the time and do the work to shop smart.
