thrifty thursday

So, I buy apples {we go through TONS of them!} in bags. Usually 3 pound bags. 3 pounds for $3.99, that's what I paid the other day. But, can all those bags really weigh 3 pounds. I don't know about you, but my life doesn't ever seem to come out that nicely. Well, anyone who gives it more than a moments worth of though would realize that it's not possible for all the bags to weigh exactly 3 pounds. But they all still cost $3.99. So, if you want the best deal you have to risk looking a bit silly and take a few bags {or all of them if you want} and go over to the scale and weigh them. Then, if you want the most bang for your buck apple for your dollar you buy the bag that weighs the most. Pretty simple, but over time it'll help with the food budget!

Do you have any favorite easy, thrifty tips? I'd love to hear 'em!


  1. Oh that's a great idea. I never thought about it when I was getting our bags of apples.

  2. Love your thrifty tips, if I think of any I'll let you know. It's too early in the morning to remember any.


Thanks for the comments . . . they make my day!
