Labor Day weekend is upon us! What a great first week of school I have had. I have never, ever been thanked by so many students as they exit my classroom every day. I am really enjoying the manners of my new 8th graders – they rock!
After a great week of teaching, I came home to my usual cup of hot tea and checked my e-mail. As I was reading through all the Labor Day Weekend promotions in my inbox, I saw a great coupon code for 30% off of a purchase of $30 or more for Bath & Body Works. It’s about time to start stocking up on great fall antibacterial scents, so I took the bait and went to the website.
Why do they ALWAYS price things so that the total is $29.97 and the code won’t work? DOH!
I wasn’t about to pay for another $3.33 bottle of soap without breaking out some Algebra skills. A secret section of the website featured summer soap scents for $2.75 each.
That’s it Bath & Body Works… it is ON!
I grabbed a post-it note and wrote 2.75x + 3.33y = 30 and started weighing my options.
What would you do? What do you think I did? 😉
