Yesterday I made a quick trip to the local Kroger. I no longer shop there because I prefer Publix but I needed a few things and The Hubbie had an RX called in for pick up. I pressed toward the mark.
I stopped at the meat area, which is at the back of the store, the first refrigerated section. I spotted some packages of ham on sale. It was Kentucky Brown Sugar Ham quarters, pre-sliced, regular price is
$4.99 per pound.
if you had a store card, it was on sale for a mere $1.99 per pound of delicious ham goodness!
I grabbed one. Brought it home, explained the deal to The Hubbie. He said that is better than the cheap stuff. Me....should I go back for more? He.....yes.
Today, I did.
Sadly not one little ham quarter was marked the sale price and yes, there were only a few left.
I tracked down the meat man!!!
My request was....I was here last night, bought this ham for $1.99 per pound. All that is on the shelf is $4.99 per pound. He scanned it and yes it was full price. The sign was still out so he said he could re-weigh it and put the sale price on it.
I said, yes and I would like a few more.
He walked to the meat counter with three in hand. He re-weighed each, put on the sale price, brought them to me and wa la.....all were now priced at the sale price!!!
The moral of this story is....don't be afraid to ask. I purchased some yum ham for less than half price! Then went back for three more!
Last night I purchased deli ham meat, one half pound, and it was over $5 dollars!!!
The Hubbie will love having it for lunch sandwiches instead of the pre-packed, long time in the store lunch meat.
My mouth is watering just thinking about how good that ham will be and how much money I saved!
Love a bargain!
