Small bags that had their own bags moved in under my eyes.
I begged, “Can we eat out tonight…”
The husband said, “Let’s make pasta at home…I’ll cook.”
If you are a wife, you know when the husband offers a gracious, “I’ll cook” all it means to you is, “When he’s done, you’ll be cleaning his mess for 37 hours.”
I went into Gorilla Sales woman, “I have a coupon!” I whipped it out and read aloud, “By one entree get one free at Sammy’s Pizza – a 9$ value!”
He bought! We’re going out to eat and saving $$$ at the same time! Yeah! Who’s the smart Mama now?
The kids meals were $5.95 and didn’t include a drink.
Bottom line: After entree’s, a cocktail and a fourth kid meal (the portions were so small that even my thin 8 year old daughter was still starving) our bill was $58. That was after the 9$ off.
Smart. We saved $9! But spent $58. So much for the savings.
Next time…I’ll cook.
