Is It Really a Bargain?

By Beth Beutler
1     "I like saving money!" Laura said to her friend Suzanne as they selected carts at the front door of their favorite department store.
 
2     "Me, too," Laura agreed. She took her coupon wallet out of her large black purse. "I'm really glad you taught me how to use coupons and watch for bargains. I'm saving about $50 a month on groceries now," she said as she read over a coupon. "Plus, I'm always getting discounts on clothes and restaurants."
 
3     "I'm glad," Suzanne said.
 
4     The ladies pushed their carts into a clearance aisle of the grocery side of the store. "Learning to look at the clearance shelf first has been a great plan," Laura said. "I can usually come up with at least one meal idea based on items on clearance."
 
5     Suzanne and Laura picked up some cans of spaghetti sauce that had small dents in them. There were also a few boxes of spaghetti noodles. "This will make an easy meal," Suzanne said. "My family loves pasta."
 
6     "Mine, too. I think I'll do up a big batch of spaghetti sauce and make a spaghetti pie with these boxes of spaghetti."
 
7     "You can make two pies and freeze one," Suzanne said.
 
8     "Good idea!"
 
9     The ladies walked along in silence, putting various items into their carts.
