A question everyone must ask one day....

And that is: Just how many 2 liters of Mountain Dew can a Chevrolet Cavalier's trunk hold?

As this picture proves, more than 62!

Safeway had a three-day sale on Mountain Dew. A 2-liter bottle was only 59 cents.

I suppose it goes without saying that we took advantage of the plentiful bottles that were still there.

And it reinforces the point that you should always ask. There was a limit of 10 bottles, but Tim approached a cashier and asked if she'd be willing to ring up each group of 10 separately. And sure enough...

Thankfully, the Safeway is less than 3 miles away, so the very low-riding trunk (and probably horrible gas mileage) wasn't much of an issue.

Just a tidbit that made us giggle.

Yeah, I've mentioned this before but Tim guzzles around a two-liter a day.

Aha, so when you use your Club Card (which you need to use to get the special price) you can get the special price on as many bottles as you can ring up in separate transactions?

I never tried because I thought it wouldn't work once you bought whatever the limit was. (i.e. all the "extra" bottles would ring up at the 'normal' price)

So it's helpful to know that you can do it.

Yep, I used the same club card for each transaction. I was a little surprised it didn't stop us either but hey, it was a nice surprise.

Reminds me of the days when I (and one of my best friends from high school) used to drink a *lot* of Coca Cola. I used to go through 2 litres per day just like Tim.

Then they tried to get rid of Coke in favour of the atrocious "New Taste". We used to go to every corner store and dig in the back of the cooler for The Real Thing. Eventually, we had tons of Coke stored in our apartments. Enough that we made it through to the point where Coca Cola finally gave up on their New Taste fiasco.

And I bought a new Corelle dish set with the bottle refunds!
