Our local grocery store had Barilla pasta on sale this week - Buy Two Get Three Free.  That's seriously an awesome deal and it makes it $0.60 a box.  I noticed the deal on Saturday evening doing my regular grocery shopping and I loaded my cart with 60 boxes of pasta of all shapes and sizes.  The cashier rang me up and the cash register only took off 6 free boxes, because in the small print there was limit of 10.  They should really put the fine print on the sale tag by the pasta.  However, they didn't and she had to proceed to void off 50 boxes one by one. Then we did 5 more transactions with only 10 boxes of pasta each.  Since today is the last day of the sale, I went back this evening and bought 60 more boxes of pasta.  I would've bought more, but my cart was quite full.  I'm pretty sure they thought I was quite weird.  So that is about as exciting as my week has been so far.  It would be great if I could post a picture of all my pasta, but it's still in the car.

  1. Hi Melinda, I came across your blog recently and I wanted to post what a wonderful family you have! I'm very sorry to hear too, about your mother's passing. I think I used to be one of your sister Renee's best friends in Jr. HS! You were just a little girl. Kind of ironic how I stumbled over here!
    Anyway, here's a link to a show on The View yesterday that tells you how to get stuff for free! I thought you might be interested in some of the segments.


    Blessings to your entire family!
