It doesn’t take me much to get me to smile and go Yeah Baby! Just give me a clearance aisle and a 5 minute look and I’m happy and content. And the great thing about it I wasn’t even looking. Breathe and smile! And like I told my husband, “Honey, I need this stuff for next year. Really. I promise you.” Sound familiar for any of you?
I am providing a disclaimer. I have a sucky camera and it was a dismal day and I was tired. Anyway, even with Picassa, the pictures are bad, but I’m sharing anyway.
The three of us (hubby, young son home from college on break) and I ran down to Burlington Coat Factory looking for some new T-shirts for my son(hate calling them wife-beaters; it’s the HR brain in me). They went towards men’s underwear and I headed over to the decor side of the store. And there they were in gold, eggplant and green and packaged in a handy plastic container. Marked at $9.99 and on sale for $2.50 each, I got two containers. Don’t ya love them?
Then son and I wanted to get out of the house one day and I bribed him to go to Marshals where I found this vase for $6.00. SCORE!!!
If that wasn’t enough I ran to ACE Hardware yesterday for some black spray paint and they there and behold I found these for $2.00 a pick. Probably still a bit pricey but I really really liked them and they look good in the vase!
I’m pretty happy with myself. All this for $21.00. Have you scored any good deals in the after Christmas sales?
