    I’m glad to see you posting the “manager’s special” sticker! People always look at me funny when they see all the stickers in my cart. The downside is that I can’t do self-checkout, but I save SO much money that way! I mean, $.39 for a loaf of bread or $.79 for a big bag of spinach is a bonus! Anything I can’t use right away gets frozen or cooked, so I win BIG!
