Pet Peeves

Sometimes there are just moments where you have to say something…

All the local grocery stores are pushing “Feed a family of 4 for $10” meals in theirs ads lately, I feel for the people who think these are deals.  The most recent one I saw was in the Food Lion ad for a spaghetti dinner.  I can make that same dinner for about $3.07 and that’s including buying a salad (which wasn’t part of their deal).

Spaghetti (recent money maker at Publix)  +.40
Hamburger 3/4 lb (on sale $1.99lb)  $1.47
Spaghetti Sauce (Ragu recently on sale) – .50
Can of diced tomatoes (we add to our sauce) – Free (Muir Glen products w/coupon)
Rolls (Pillsbury) – Free
Salad bagged – $1.50
Total: $3.07 and it would probably feed 5 so that’s .61 cents per person!!

When it comes to advertising I actually have a lot of pet peeves so I’ll just stop there for today.
