Recent Bargains. Now I have a dolphin in my car.
Last Saturday was my first real yardsale shopping experience for 2008. And this Saturday I am selling at an indoor yardsale (where space rental is $5). They say over 30 sellers have signed up so it should be very good - but probably crowded as far as how much actual space everyone will get.
Here's a couple of pics from my buys on Saturday. Most expensive thing was the brand new $5 golf cart (has a $59 price tag on it).
On Wednesday morning I went to Walgreens - since they had a special one day promo for a free inkjet refill. Well giving away the free refills is a smart move on their part. They lured me in the door with their free inkjet promo - then they said they didn't refill my particular brand of inkjet - and then all the bright lights and fancy displays enticed me into buying stuff I didn't know that I needed. Like a glowing blue dolphin for my car. It was $2.50 on clearance. And I ended up buying an additional $15 worth of stuff and no free inkjet refill for me.
Then on Wednesday afternoon, had lunch with my husband and then stopped at the little independent grocery where I got all those bottles of adult beverages. I wanted to see if they put anything else on clearance. I walk in the door and see a grocery cart with a sign ".50 each" Ended up buying nine .50 items. Bought a cheap pair of sunglasses, pizza cutter, multipack packages of gum and the below anti-perspirant and mousse for .50 each.
Tomorrow I need to get ready for the Saturday yardsale. But I will find time to pop into a new hair salon that is having a grand opening tomorrow. Supposed to be door prizes and free consulations, food etc etc. Maybe I can win a free haircut or something.
