Your Good Buy Of The Day

I love how you all are making me think thrifty!!!!

Was out doing a little shopping today - yep, using my coupons at the grocery store and at the retail stores.

Thought it would be fun to share good deals we found.

I'll start.

I needed a copy of "The Polar Express" for work. At B and N, in their bargain section, I found a gift set that includes hard cover book, CD, tape and bell ornament (you know, the famous PExpress bell) for $9.98! Members price only $8.98! I thought that was a great deal on a sweet Christmas gift if you're looking to buy for a child (or a grown one :) )

Here's a link to the same online deal - it says limited quantities:

Barnes & Noble.com - Book Search: Bargain, the polar express

So, what's your good buy of the day ????

    I stopped by the semi-local liquor warehouse to pick up some white wine for Thanksgiving cooking...all of the wines were on sale, so I stocked up and bought some Yellow Tail Pinot Grigio and Shiraz for $ 6.09 a bottle..it is usually about $10 so my little find was a happy one. Woodbridge was about the same price.

    Got a pair of leather/cashmere lined gloves for my son for $30 (they were 40% off and I had a $10 off $30 purchase coupon)

    started looking at Black Friday ads today, and found a 5x7 digital frame that ordinarily runs $99, that will be $59. Might try to pick up a couple.

    Tropicana orange juice has been sky high for several years so we stopped buying it. I wonder if it has followed the price of gasoline down.

    I went to Old Navy and they had a 30% off sale going on and one of the things I got was a cashmere sweater. Originally marked down from 59.50 to 40.00 then it was 26 somethin after the discount. Good deal

    Oh yeah I think it was just men's, but you could've still gotten the 30% coupon thing, I think it was a company-wide thing.

    After a day of raking leaves, I went shopping for a couple of hours. The black Calvin Klein pants I really needed were 50% off plus additional 20% off plus I had a coupon, but Macy's was out of size 8! Size 10 fell off my butt. I normally wear a 10 and swear the butt did not get any tinier. However, I got myself a nice warm hat and a pashmina at a local Nordstrom Rack. The pashmina was $29.99, and it did not look any different from the other ones in the same pile that were $59.99 (marked down from $89.99 - who would pay that much for a scarf? :eek:)

    Went to Old Navy & purchased a tank top with sweetheart neckline for $3.49 - 30%; also purchased a fleece v-neck pullover for $7 and 2 pairs of tank tops for $7. We also got D 20 panties for $37 - 30%. The total was supposed to be about $66 but with the 30% discount it was about $45.

    For her birthday, her dad made a smoked turkey dinner last night so tonight we splurged & went out to a very nice restaurant to celebrate. They were having a special for the week - $32 for a 3-course meal. Hubby & I ordered the special & let D order what she wanted to. They gave her a free birthday dessert. The total for the 3 of us including drinks, coffee, appetizers & dessert was under $135. (Normally, it is $35 just for one entre at this restaurant.)
