Bargain Shopping

Ok, time for something lighter.

I have had a big run of bargain shopping, and I am pretty proud of myself.

- For Beatrix's birthday, we wanted to get something different for the kids who attended than the standard goody bags. I was checking out the books at Borders when I say their "super sale" table, which included some really adorable, cuddly stuffed panda bears — marked down from $19.99 to $1. My savings on the 18 bears purchased for gifts? $341.82.

- We also hit the mall. Cost for 3 tee shirts and a camisole from Old Navy, an embroidered tee from The Limited, and a big cozy sweater from Ann Taylor? $40.

- Today I had some Walgreen's coupons. I got a free photo collage of Beatrix (perfect for one of my many desks), 2 boxes of gourmet chocolates for $9.98 each — but each had a $20 stackable gift certificate for 1-800-FLOWERS so $40 worth of gift certs, and a surprise extra Valentine's gift for Patrick that was free after Register Rewards — plus I had a 15% off your whole order coupon.

Just doing my part in the stimulus recovery action...
