Okay, so maybe there's no such thing as a free lunch. But how about a thirty-nine cent lunch? Is that close enough?
At the grocery store on Saturday I redeemed a ton of coupons, two of which resulted in lunch for both Kevin and I today. I had coupons for $1.10 off a can of Progresso soup. The soup was on sale on Saturday for $1.25 per can. If my math skills serve me correctly that means I got each can of soup for just 15 cents. Awesome! I also had a great coupon for Pepperidge Farm Baked Naturals; the coupon plust the sale netted a box of snack crackers for just ninety nine cents. Each box of snack crackers equals out to about four servings, so just shy of twenty five cents per serving.
A can of soup and a portion of snack crackers = .39. Not too shabby! But then...I splurged and added a nineteen cent apple bringing my grand total to fifty-eight cents.
Sigh. Guess it's true - there's no such thing as a free lunch. Just a really inexpensive one ;o)
