The Deal: Stocking Up on Christmas Supplies


Yesterday, Tim and I drove our middle daughter back to college…it was a fun trip with a some laughs and a nice chance to spend some time with just her.

We stopped to pick up some groceries for her at Target and, low and behold, they still had some Christmas items on clearance…I assumed they’d all be sold by now! I’m not one to travel to the stores for after Christmas sales, you see we live at least an hour away from a Target or a mall.

I made sure our daughter had dinner items in her cart to get her through at least the next few days (you see it’s supposed to be ungodly cold…down to -70 with the wind chill). (Hibernating weather) The governor even closed all public schools for tomorrow! Read more

Yup…It’s sooo me!


OK, so youย don’t see the jeans, but trust me – they fit like a charm.ย  And…my husband even said “Ooooooohhh”.ย  {sigh}ย  God I love that man.

Have a great day everyone!

Epic Fail?…or…SCORE!


OK…

So yesterday I posted about being strong…and I’m not goingย spend money…blah, blah, blah.

And then today I went for my appt.ย – which was good by the way – and I stopped to see if a black dress was on sale.

I had talked to my husband about said black dress before I left and he agreed – go ahead and buy it!ย  It’s the same cut as a dress I already have in a tweed grey material…and I love it.ย  Compliments my shape (pear)…basic black…and I saw it two months ago which in my head equates to “it should now be on sale”!ย  I guess it already was on saleย at $88.98ย {cough, cough} and the price hadn’t changed.

Here’s the thing…I’m cheap.ย  Not that I buyย ‘cheap’ clothing, but rather that I LOVE to get a deal.ย  I very RARELYย buyย anything – especially clothesย at full price!ย  Remember, I used to own a consignment store?ย  And my favorite store in the world is TJ MAXX!ย  Deal-o-rama!ย  I love the feeling of scoring an awesome deal!ย  Not for just anything, but for a really good quality item at an ungodly good deal.

Well, suffice it to say I didn’t buy the dress. Read more
