Spending Yesterday

February 12th, 2017 at 02:36 pm

Yesterday, we did a bit of needed spending. My daughter needed a new purse as her old one had a broken zipper. I had a $10 coupon at JC Penney and the purse (leather) was on sale for $33. A very good deal. Unfortunately, my husband didn't do the best with his shopping. He picked up three workout T shirts, Nike Brand, that he told me were $11 each. One rang up as $21, and the other two for $18.75 each. He did get long sleeve shirt on clearance for $8.99. He went backed and looked at the display and didn't read it right. Ugh! I'm letting him keep them as it just isn't worth the effort to fight him on it. He is not a good shopper, luckily he doesn't shop for new things too often.

I bought a 10 pack of no show socks for $11.99 at Kohl's. I had a $6 coupon (for my 6 year anniversary with my Kohl's card) so I paid just over $6 out of pocket. Now that is my kind of deal!

We shopped at Fresh Market for some ingredients to make two meals. This one was yummy! I have a ton of leftovers, too. The cost of the food, including some snacks, was nearly $39. We also bought some other vitamins, so the bill was $65 exactly.

Today we go do our regular grocery shopping trip at the commissary. I think I may buy some Girl Scout cookies, if there is a troop selling there today. Otherwise, we are staying home and will enjoy some time outside. It's going to be 82 degrees here! Spring really is coming. I'm already seeing buds on trees, and some trees already put out pink blooms! I'm sharing for those of you up north. It really is just around the corner. Hang in there!

Oh, and I heard my husband mention picking up flowers and Valentine's cards for my daughter and I. Last year, I convinced him not too. I'm not sure what to say this year. It's hard to squash someone's nice intentions!

And finally, did you look at your retirement accounts? Probably at an all time high once again. It is nice to see!

    I feel your pain shopping with husbands. Mine has gotten a bit better, but his main goal is always to get in and get out. I need to check prices, look around, etc. I say let your DH buy flowers for your daughter; it's very sweet.

    My DH loves shopping at Kohls...he refuses to pay full price for anything and gets amazing bargains.

    Spring may be around the corner but the second blizzard in three days makes it hardly believe. The power is still on and I am grateful...cooking with the grands...good times...

    Sorry-- edit--"hard to believe..."

    Maybe you can convince him to just focus on your daughter since you don't need anything and suggest the dollar store for her card?

    I think my husband was honestly relieved when I suggested no gifts.

    I got a little taste of Spring yesterday when I went to visit my mom. She only lives about an hour south, but it was a solid 15-20 degrees warmer. Apparently, there was a wall of cold air between our house and hers. I wore leggings and Uggs down to visit and ended up having to borrow yoga pants (and roll them up) and sneakers for the dogs' walk. The dogs even went swimming in the lake! Of course, today it's back to a high of low 40s...

    I just tried the recipe you linked and you are right-- it is
    "yummy!" Thank you!
