not the best price, but we are out of canned fruit!

*Spam…by Brad’s request

$2.50 each x 6, had 2 $1.50 off 3 cans, so came out to $2.00 each

*Eggs well it is Easter, I was surprised they weren’t on sale…maybe this week!

Now back to all that toilet paper, I know that seems very strange to buy that much at a time, but is it really any different than someone walking out of Sam’s with a big pack of toilet paper & paper towels.  I don’t think so!  I have the space to store it all and after rebates they will have cost around $1.50 PER PACK.  The only difference is that I spent the same as I would have at Sam’s but I walked out with A LOT MORE!

FYI…it took two carts to carry it all 🙂
