The Problem with Good Deals

We eat a lot of sandwiches around here and I've been buying prepackaged deli meat for over a year now. There are several brands that I can always get at the commissary for $1.45 or $1.50 for 9 oz. after coupons. Not a bad price, and some of the meat is pretty good. Plus I get a free container out of the deal.

But on my last shopping trip I used a fantastic coupon I got from Sara Lee for a free product, up to $8.99. So I went to the deli counter and ordered up a pound and a quarter of sliced turkey. Last night DH made a sandwich and raved how good it was. I told him it cost seven dollars a pound and he said..."Worth every penny!"

Sigh...Now I'm going to have to retrain his taste buds for bargain sandwiches.
