Who would have thunk it?
So I walk into Target, and the only thing I can remember is the dishwashing soap. So I stand in front of the dishwashing soap, trying to determine the best deal, while hoping the light bulb will go on and tell me what else I needed. But it wasn't coming to me. So I grabbed a box of a brand of dishwashing soap for $5.59.
Annoyed because I knew I'd be back tomorrow because as soon as I got home, I'd remember what else I needed. And the lines to check out were unusually long. So I left the soap behind, and headed out to my car.
I got to the next stoplight and I remembered. Well, there's the Fry's grocery store on the way home. Hopefully it won't be overpriced compared to Target.
Find the same box of dishwashing soap. It's on sale for $2.99!! I can hardly believe it. Plus, the Dreyer's (Breyer's/Edy's) brand ice cream is on sale for $1.99. I decide to skip on the cat litter and get it for another day because I didn't have a cart.
So for the less than the dishwashing soap, I got a half gallon of ice cream. Perhaps my light bulb was smarter than I give it credit and saved me money. I was more shocked that Target charged so much more for the exact same item.
