Math is Real Life- Bubble Bath

Linking up with  my friends for Math in Real Life 

Saw this at our local HEB (grocery store) and immediately thought about how I could use this in my math class. 

What would you do? 

I bought my kids an abundance of Bubble Bath. They were thrilled! 

Heck, I was MAKING money shopping at HEB!!!! 

Then one day as I am walking through the HEB, I see a good friend of mine who works there and we are at this display. I mention that this coupon seems a little weird.  She looks confused and I explain how I am making 6 CENTS every time I buy one! She still looks confused. So, I explain it to her like a 6th grader. 

She looks at me and says, "uh... AFTER the coupon!!!!" Then shows me the sign that is COVERED up by their display! I wish I had the forethought to take a picture of it!!! 

HA!!! Joke is on me!!! I have not been making money, I should have known it was too good to be true. Lesson learned! Enjoy a giggle on me!
