Bought Band-Aids to Get Milk!

We were totally out of milk, paper towels and coffee creamer. I haven't had time to come up with a great scenario but really didn't want spend a lot of money (especially after the excesses of vacation). So after being inspired by I Love Publix I made a quick trip to Publix! It went very well, except I purchased the wrong variety of creamer which was not BOGO. Even with that, my total before taxes was a negative, which was really cool! Here is what I purchased:

-(2) .55/1 IP Qs
