Saved by a Sample

Boink *hitting palm to forehead*

My sore hiney has got my whole schedule outa whack. Ordinarily, I shop each week and we have everything we need, or there is plenty to make do. But my trips to town have been fewer and shorter since my (3) falls.

So I just realized this afternoon that I was completely out of food for my puppies. (NOT a good thing when you have 5 little mouths to feed.)

We have a little corner market about 3 miles from here. They carry most anything you need---at a ridiculously high price. But I was desperate. So I was looking over the wet food...which was only DOUBLE what I normally pay at WalMart...and then headed for the dry food...ugh...the smallest bag was over $5!!!

So I resolve to paying these outrageous prices when I notice a big whiskey barrel with "FREE SAMPLES" on it...and inside are single servings of a new dry dog food!! There are 4 different I grab one of each...plenty for tonight and first feeding tomorrow. Total spent: $1.98 for two cans of wet food.

And my puppies are now all happy again...but tomorrow...I see a Walmart trip in order.

Boy, I love free samples!

    nice going on the sample, and perfectly legit getting one of each flavor should someone ask why you're getting 4! BTW, did the pups like it? maybe you stumbled on a new favorite Big Grin

    Good for you! I hate paying convenience store prices.
