Contest Time!

In the spirit of giving, I've decided to host a fun little contest. The prize? A ten dollar gift card of your choice (within reason) that I will mail out to you. The contest? Guess which tab cost less by leaving a comment. If you guess correctly, I will enter your name into a hat

....Sounds easy, right? Check out the grocery tabs below, and tell me which one you think cost less. I promise to deliver on two things...First, I'll document drawing the winner and second, I'll explain my reasoning behind this fun little contest.

Comment away!

Grocery Tab 1:
6 random 2L bottles of soda
18lb bag of charcoal
1 Bottle Heinz ketchup
1 bag of hotdog buns
1 dozen cookies from the bakery
1 package of neon bendie-straws

Grocery Tab 2:
1 large bag of cheese puffs
1 large bag of tortilla chips
1 jar of salsa
5-pack of brats
1 bag of brat buns
1 carton of strawberries
12-pack of bottled water
1 Gallon of milk
1 watermelon


  1. So I actually wrote down how much I thought each item would cost at my grocery store, and added it up. And they came within a dollar of each other. Crap.

    But I guess I have to guess the one that was slightly more, so I guess Grocery Tab 2.

  2. I say #2. There is no logic behind this, maybe I should wait till I can go to Kroger, first.

  3. Tab #2 but that's because I have no idea how much a bag of charcoal costs so I randomly picked an amount.

  4. Damn the charcoal in number one is the wild card cause I have idea how much that costs I am going to say it is probably list 2

  5. Tab #2 cost less. I bet you got that stuff at Aldi.

  6. I thought maybe this was a trick because why wouldn't you pick the tab with the most items (#2)? However, I did what doahleigh did and I know how much junk food (cheese puffs and chips) can add up... Plus, I know how much charcoal costs.

    Tab #2 it is.

    Are you being tricky?
