I had a really cheap, but excellent lunch today, and I discovered the bargain courtesy of my friends Todd and Karl. Harris Teeter, a local grocery store here in the Virginia area, has a weekday special on their deli-made subs. These are fresh subs, made to order, just like at Subway, only they are about 10 times better than Subway. And ten times cheaper.
I got the special today (a turkey sub, on wheat with all the fixin’s), along with a half liter bottle of spring water for a grand total of $3.42 and that includes Virginia’s outrageous 11.5% sales taxes.
That is a bargain no matter how you slice it. It also avoids the crowds and outrageous prices of the mall.
Oh, and the sandwich was delicious!
