I love saving on purchases. I usually pay 11.47 for six one-half gallon Ball jars. So, I have few. In the store I found boxes of six one-half gallon jars for $6.97. Naturally, I grabbed a box. If I could have afforded more boxes, I would have gotten them. When I came to the register and the jars rang up at $11.47+ tax, I pointed out the sale price. As it turned out, the jars were on the wrong shelf, not on sale. They gave me the jars at the price on the shelf--$6.97. YAY me!
It is the time of year that canning supplies are on sale. Maybe I can actually find a sale and buy more quarts and pints.
There are still several 4 pound bags of $0.25/lb. sugar here that need to be stored in something airtight as I await more canning and baking. So, here is the answer.
There is no picture yet, but I decided to buy a pot for $2.99 that appeared to be just right for making jelly. As it turned out, there were half a dozen pots in the wrong spot. So, I scored a $25 stainless steel pot for $3. Granted, it is not an expensive pot, but well worth the price I paid.
And, I found thirteen cents, all in one place.
Have you found any canning jars reduced yet this year? Do you often find items on the wrong shelf, decide to purchase because it looks like a great deal and then find it was just marked wrong? Does your store have a policy of selling you the item at the price on the shelf? Mine does?
