Bargains, bargains, everywhere…

After a very expensive holiday season (thank you, property taxes!) I’m trying pretty hard not to buy anything this month.  Still, I could not pass up these deals…

The Target near me is offering an additional 30% off clearance clothing, which is already 30-75% off.

I got 12 items for Son (including three sweaters and a windbreaker – and  a Champion Hoodie and sweatpants!) and paid only $28.   I bought everything in next year’s size, so we’re off to a good start.  I used gift cards to finance these finds, so I’m pretty happy.  I’d have been happier if the cashier had not  mentioned that last year they did 50% off the clearance clothing…

I got another coup at Office Max.  They sent me a $10 off $10 coupon, so off I went with the intention of getting an electric pencil sharpener (we don’t have  any other than my make-up sharpener).  The electrics started at 7.99, but I realized that I didn’t want to keep it plugged in, and plugging and unplugging it as needed would be as much of a PITA as a manual sharpener for more money.  They also had a battery operated model for $7.99, but after considering the cost of batteries  I instead got a little manual one for 50 cents, and picked up 2 packs of construction paper (Son makes lots of restroom drawings), glue sticks, a first aid kit for the car and some craft paintbrushes and paid only $.90 out of pocket.

I’m going to re-commit to stay out of the stores because I have a hard time resisting the bargain temptation.  But I do have to go to Kohl’s to return something…

Oy.

    But you don’t like Kohl’s anyway…
