Funny Math: We were picking up prescriptions for Lulu and decided to grab some chocolate. We see a display with new M&M flavors. Carmel, dark Chocolate and peanut, peanut butter. All in shareable bags. Two bags for $6.00 or $4.19 each. Our conversation went something like this:
Me: Let’s just get one bag. She’s queasy anyway and
I or rather YOU surely do not need any candy.
Billy Bob: Two bags are cheaper.
Me: No, one bag is $4.19, two bags are $6.00.
Billy Bob: I know, $3.00 each or $4.19. That’s $1.19 more.
Me: Per bag silly. Actually, one bag is $1.81 less than the $6.00 we’d pay for two bags.
Billy Bob: I give up.
Me: I didn’t say anything. You see, I know when to keep quiet. Lol :).
As luck would have it, the single bag was only $3.19 because I am a CVS frequent flyer and we got $1 off our purchase.
As always, more to come.
