Every year, McDonald's has their Filet-O-Fish sandwiches on special for Lent. This year, you can purchase two fish sandwiches for $3.50. That is $1.75 each and almost half price. I think it is a pretty good deal.

I don't usually drive around McDonald's, but I do like their fish sandwiches and mint shamrock shakes, which are available now because of St. Patrick's Day. I meant to buy some yesterday after I went grocery shopping, but it was getting to that late afternoon time when I knew the line at McDonald's would be long. So, instead of McDonald's, I picked up a six count box of Van de Camp sandwich-size fish filets, a package of hamburger-size buns, and some mint chocolate chip ice cream. I brought home three times the amount of food that I would have gotten at McDonald's for about the same price. Those saved dollars add up.
