Coming Up Roses
I love miniature rose bushes, and I have several planted in my yard. But I hate to pay full price for them, so I usually wait until the store reduces the price. That's what Kroger finally did last Tuesday. When the price dropped to $1.99 each, I bought four.
I'd almost thrown away the coupon for a dollar off a $5.00 or more purchase from the floral department because I figured I wouldn't use it. However, it was still in my coupon holder, so I used it. Plus, it was Senior Citizens' Day, so that took off another 5%.
It pays to shop at the right time—and to use coupons.
