Well... 5/8 is already a decent price, I guess... but the 3.00 savings is a manu coupon in the store. I thought it was store savings, not manu savings... so I couldn't add my coupons to it. booooooooooooooooo.

The only good thing about it is that I snagged a bunch of the coupons (3.00/5 products), and I will use them when they go on BOGOs somewhere else.

I still got four boxes of granola bars and a box of peanut butter capn crunch and one peter pan peanut butter for 5.45, though... since when is there tax on those? I'm pretty mad about that... *sigh* It should have just been 5.00...

We pay tax on food/meds, but it is only 1.25%.

I am pretty sure they taxed me just on the granola bars, but I don't remember ever paying tax on them before. They are 1.60 before the coupon, so that is .45 tax for four boxes...

We're supposed to have no tax on groceries and medications... I guess granola bars are no longer considered grocery items...

Ugh, that sucks.

We pay pretty high sales tax, but NO state income tax.

I solve that last problem by being too poor to have a house. I pay my rent and that's it-- no garbage, no sewer, no property tax, no insurance, not even satellite.

We don't have tax on food either, and granola bars are so totally in the grocery category.
