Maybe MARTIN’S isn’t that bad…

I am still fighting my Ukrop’s is almost gone depression and trying to have a good attitude about MARTIN’S coming to town.  I made another step in that direction tonight.  I was able to get 12 items for $0.24 (including tax)!!!!  The cashier (who was a teenage boy) said, “that is really cool.”The courtesy clerk (also a teenage boy) said “Really $0.24?  This lady knows how to shop!”  I was able to get the low out-of-pocket cost by redeeming the Catalina’s that I earned yesterday from the Shout Advanced stain remover refill ($1) and from the Edy’s Ice Cream Promotion ($4). 

So, what did I get for $0.24?  Here is a picture:

So, maybe I can start to like MARTIN’S.  :)
