SUBJECT: Boxes of Milk Duds
StellaDella’s seventh birthday is tomorrow and she asked if she could give boxes of Milk Duds to each of her classmates. I agreed, thinking that I had seen them for 69 cents each at a Dollar Tree store. She said she had 25 kids in her class (not including her). Ok, I thought 69 cents x 25 students = $17.25 – a little pricey, but overall, not too bad for birthday favors. She went with me to pick them up and while there, she informed me that she needed a box and she wanted to give one to her teacher and the student teacher as well. Ok then, 3 more wouldn’t hurt. We went to the check-out lane and it turns out I was wrong....they were not 69 cents, but $1 each – that’s $28 dollars worth of Milk Duds! Gah! – that was a bit more than I wanted to spend (I’m am very
cheap frugal when it comes to things like this). I went ahead and bought them anyway - SD is so excited about handing these out to her friends – I did not want to disappoint her and who needs money anyway?
