Is it just me or does that “Give me back that filet-o-fish” commercial by McDonalds one of those creepily hypnotic jingles that just sticks in your head. Damn them for doing that. It comes up at the most inopportune times like when I’m at church. But then there is usually a bratty screaming kid that snaps me out of thinking about it.

If you can’t get enough of the singing fish, you can buy it at Rite Aid for $19.99. Click here for a $5 off $25 coupon at Rite Aid:

Another commercial that is really bizarre is the one for Trident Three Layers. There is a UPS guy that is in the front bushes of a house eavesdropping on a conversation the family is having in their living room and he said he would get paid in Trident gum. I would’ve got the garden hose out and sprayed him away from the house.

Then there is a phone guy across the street with apparent super-hearing that moans about wishing he got paid in Trident gum. Yes, yes, hey business world, us workers have no need for cold hard cash. We would prefer gum. Chewy gum. Especially one from Trident that has three layers of flavors. If we were paid in gum, I wonder if we would still need to fill out W2 tax forms.

Dollar menus at fast food restaurants are great deals. Some are such good deals; they are loss leaders. For the most part you can get three dollar menu burgers for the price of one regular sandwich.

People always ask me, “Joe, where do you get your meat?” I tell them I always get it half off. And then I freeze it. There are always buy-one-get-one free deals on meat. Load up on it and it’s good for at least 6 months. Meat usually goes bad after 6 months, so there is plenty of time to enjoy your meat. Ask the butcher about his meat too. They will discount any meat that they need to get rid of before it goes bad and expires. Butchers are very proud of their meat. They always want to give their meat away at a discount when they know it’s going bad. Ask him to show you his meat that they need to get rid of. Hold your meat in your hand and then start haggling.

Nobody likes meat that isn’t fresh, but what is gross is the packaged meats that use coloring and preservatives to make it look fresh. If you have to doll up your meat in order for it to look good then you have some nasty meat. The packages always seem to bloat up. Bloated meat doesn’t look healthy. It starts to turn green and slimy and smell. I think that is what finally killed Tops in Ohio – they decided to get rid of their butchers and go with pre-packaged meat. So tell your store that you go to not to ever wrap your meat in a package full of junk. Let them know you like it fresh.

There are coupons for meat – Hormel, Tyson, Perdue, etc. Pairing a coupon with BOGO meat will get me usually at least 70% off. I always give my meat to the cashier and have them gently scan it and then put it into two old bags. I prefer two bags than one. If something happens to the one bag I don’t want my meat to drop to the floor. Having two bags makes me feel more secure. I also always keep an eye on the cashier and make sure they don’t put something nasty like Comet on my meat. You’d think the cashiers are old enough to know better, but sometimes you have to tell them what to do.

K-Mart – Eastlake, West 65th, Dayton, Wadsworth, and Milton in Ohio. For a full list of store closures go to: eight stores in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota, Georgia, Florida, Colorado and Washington. K-Mart has over 1,300 stores nationwide and 17 in Northeast Ohio yet. I’m surprised the store in Eastlake lasted this long. There was never anyone shopping at the store. Tons were there today. But don’t get caught up in lame 20% to 30% deals when stores initally go out of business. Wait for the deals to hit at least 50% off.
