Saved $7

Okay, so I know compared to some of you superstars, that's not a lot, but it is going to add up overtime.

We went out to eat last night at McDonalds and we normally spend about $12 but we had a buy one get one free for a sandwich so we did a large fry and water with them.

I did the math and was shocked to discover that combo meals aren't deals anymore. Take for example the big mac meal. On their own the big mac costs $2.89 and the med fry $1.00. Back when I worked at McDonalds, add another $0.20 to that and you got the price of a combo. Now you have to add another $1.00 for that to get a combo so the pop is no longer practically free!

Even without the coupon, it would be much cheaper for us to do 2 sandwiches and a large fry ($1.80) with waters than to do 2 combo meals.

So even though the coupon only officially saved us $3, it did save us a lot more just realizing that little fact.

Now I will have to check out Burger King's pricing since that is basically the only other fast food place we hit.
