My heart fluttered when I saw this sign at my neighborhood grocer. How crazy is it to be excited about an extra orange per dollar?
Since I just calculated fruit cost for my breakfast, I knew my price to beat was 25-cents, or the approximate cost of each orange in the "8 lb for $5" special.
This surprise deal saved me $2. Since I was able to select each orange by hand, I also saved myself the one or two rotten fruits I've come to expect in a big bag.
Don't laugh at my glee! I can now budget for two more pineapples, which are 99-cents at Aldi this week.
Added side bonus: The produce manager let me keep these handy foam trays. Santa will be slipping one in my husband's drawer to organize all his socks!
