DDPO Activities

Welcome to Due Date Plus One! No, I’m not planning on doing this for every day past the due date… 🙂 Tonight we ate at [Taco Bell](http://www.tacobell.com/) – yes, two people can eat a filling dinner for $4.99. 🙂 Then we did some grocery shopping at Market Basket. I brought along the BeckyCam to [document our outing](http://prwdot.org/gallery2/v/baby/due_date_plus_one/). Check out the photos to see what Market Basket deems as appropriate punishment for evil chickens…

    Are you still here? When’s that baby due?
    Oh yes, do whatever Becky tells you to do during delivery, but DO NOT CRACK JOKES! (Amy was almost without a father when she was born!)

    I’m curious . . . was that 4.99 each or dinner for the both of you for 4.99? I’m impressed. As for birth advice, you’re on your own, but Taco Bell seems to be the way to go.

    We decided to play a game when we went to dinner tonight: buy dinner for less than $5. So yes, it was $4.99 total, for both of us. Here’s the breakdown:

    I had:

    * 1 bean burrito, $0.89
    * 1 cheesy bean and rice burrito, $0.99

    Becky had:

    * 1 double decker taco, $0.99
    * 1 crunchy beef taco, $0.79

    We shared:

    * 1 small drink (unlimited refills), $1.09

    • Subtotal: $4.75
    • Tax: $0.24
    • Total: $4.99

    Yummy and cheap! Had Becky ordered a soft taco instead of a crunchy taco, the price would have gone up $0.10 and it would have gone over $5!

    Nobody wants to think this, but it is possible that there could be FOURTEEN Due Date Pluses! Just warning everyone… please stay calm! 🙂

    When there used to be a Taco Bell in Burlington, near the mall, I once calculated if you bought one of everything on the menu, including small medium and large of those that came in sizes, it came out to some ridiculous price of only $33.60. But that was when the regular hard tacos were like 79 cents.

    Krista: Actually, as I had mentioned in an earlier comment where I broke down the pricing for our dinner, you can still get tacos for $0.79. Most Taco Bells around here tend to jack up their prices, but the Taco Bell in Salem, MA has the baseline Taco Bell pricing, which includes crunchy beef tacos for $0.79 and bean burritos for $0.89. An example of a Taco Bell with bad pricing would be the one at the North Shore mall… they charge anywhere from 20-40 cents more for most of their items. When you’re trying to get a meal for under $5, that matters a lot. 🙂
