Cheap trick Friday: baked salad bar

This one comes in from a reader*.

At the local grocery store, the baked potato bar is $5.99 for “a potato and whatever you want to put on it.” The salad bar is charged by the ounce, and is typically around ten bucks for a salad. The difference is that one container includes a potato and one does not.

Put a potato in your salad! Save $4! Eat your fruits and vegetables and live to be a million, which will be great, because you will have a lot of money left over to play with you in your old age.

*Yes, I have readers, even if they are related to me by blood and so contractually required to support me in all of my endeavors.
