I didn't plan this Saturday Saga, but it was a first! I wanted to make some Banana Muffins, and realized I didn't bring my muffin tins when we moved. Must have given them to my daughter or sold them at the yard sale...but No muffin tins. I needed some paper products from a well known store (I won't mention) but it starts with a "T".
I got to the store, got my cart and started filling it up. Paper towel (hum ~ they seem higher than last trip) napkins, dishwasher packets, Swifters, (hum ~ these sure seem higher in price than I remember last time) Oh yes, muffin tin ~ Yikes $18.99 ~ and nothing cheaper...Never!!
For the first time in my life ~ I retraced my steps and put everything back on the shelves, parked my empty cart at the door and left!!! The security cameras, I'm sure wondered what I was doing.
Stopped at Food-4-Less and got everything for 1/2 the price. In fact the muffin tin was less than $4.00. (my old ones were from the Thrift Store for 75 cents.)
Is it just me, or are prices at our "Big Super Stores" getting higher?? BTW I felt a lot better after a cup of coffee and a banana muffin.
