In all honesty, I’m not even that big of a fan of Christmas cookies.
Still, this past weekend we drove to a grocery store we NEVER go to. Why? Because they might possibly have butter. Yes, good ‘ole American, measured in tablespoons, normal-sized butter.
To my delight – they had butter!
What didn’t they have? Prices on ANY of the products in the store. (They never do.)
This is always a delightful surprise. You get up to the register and sometimes realize you just spent $10 on a box of Velveeta Shells & Cheese. Anywho…
I bought FOUR boxes of butter (Challenge & Land-o-Lakes brands) that contain FOUR sticks of butter each. (Total of 16 sticks 1/2 cup sticks.)
First off, let me tell you that upon seeing how much I was being charged per box, my mouth dropped open.
I called my Mom and apparently in Missouri – she just paid $8.00 for four boxes (16 sticks) of butter.
I paid $40 USD. Yes.
I’m ready to move.
