Your Good Buy Of The Day (Part 1)

<p>Your visiting richer sister and husband takes you out for a good meal</p>

<p>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</p>

<p>Darn! I wanted one of those cashmere sweaters for my daughter - they weren't on sale at our Old Navy yesterday.....</p>

<p>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.</p>

<p>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:)</p>

<p>bunsenburner - they wouldn't check another store for you for the pants?</p>

<p>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.</p>

<p>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.)</p>

<p>I saved $13.50 in Publix. Just by luck, everything I needed was on sale and I got a "buy one get one free" olive oil. I felt so smug leaving the store.</p>

<p>Oh yea, forgot to mention, the turkey was "free" with two frequent shopper coupons that you earned for every $250 you spent at their story. We have earned 5 of those coupons, so we can get one more "free" turkey as well, if we can figure out where to store it.</p>

<p>Before you buy books, always look for printable coupons on B&N and Borders. You can usually find a 15% or better coupon. Look at couponcabin for printable coupons as well. You'll see some 20%, 30% deals that you can get just for printing out those coupons. Christmas Tree SHop and Old Navy & like had friends and family coupons. I never buy from BB&B without a coupon. It's good to do a search for coupons anytime you are planning to buy. Never hurts and it takes just a minute.</p>

<p>Dell</a> Coupon Codes, HP Coupons, Overstock Coupon, Dell Online Coupon, Promotional Code as well....all online stores and often, offline as well.</p>

<p>This is for bradsdeals.....</p>

<p>I went to the Salvation Army down the road from my office last week to drop off a donation, I had some time so I went into the thrift store to look around, and found a J Crew cashmere turtleneck from last year's holiday catalog, with the TAG STILL ON! Thanked my guardian angel for that one!</p>

<p>Cool, Rachacha! I do the same thing (drop off donations, take a look around--often turn up a name-brand item!). :-)</p>

<p>"$4.99/pound for shelled walnuts(normally $8.99/pound)"</p>

<p>Two walnuts a day are good for your heart. For max benefit, buy in shells and crack it yourself.</p>

<p>I went to a cat shelter to drop off a donation, and walked out with a kitten. She was a real bargain - $100 adoption fee covered her testing, shots, microchipping, spaying and a coupon for a free vet checkup which happened to include our regular vet clinic!</p>

<p>Looks like Target will have some serious discounts soon:</p>

<p>I was on the West Coast recently for a wedding.... and went to the local Safeway to pick up some snacks/drinks for the weekend.... I was quite surprised to see the prices for some of the wine....$6 a bottle for Blackstone....which is usually anywhere between $10 and $12 here in New England..... but the price was only good for Safeway card holders. I asked at the front desk if they had a spare card I could borrow since I was from out of town....and the net is that they did......basically, one of the register guys gave me a form with a card, told me to return the form "at some point" and I was good to shop. Overall, I saved about $25 on things I was buying, I was glad I asked and glad that there was empathy behind the counter!! </p>

<p>I recently was at my local supermarket without my Shaws card....and they would not honor their "card" prices for me....and I have been shopping there for 24 yrs... they told me to bring the receipt in next time with my card and I would be made whole.... definitely aliented me ..... wishing we had a Safeway here....</p>

<p>^^^ I like that last one.</p>

<pre><code>A like new copy of Eat, Pray, Love...54 cents.

I though it was going to be too dopey for me, but so far I'm enjoying it. Makes you want to learn Italian and go eat in Italy.

<p>I was dropping off some old stereo equipment at Goodwill or Salvation Army & found the most gorgeous washable velour dress for my daughter--just her size--for $4 in mint condition. It was her very favorite dress for many years.</p>

<p>I love Goodwill. It is amazing what you can find there. </p>

<p>I bought a purse for $2.99 and found diamond earrngs inside!</p>

<p>so THAT'S what happened to those earrings I have been looking for ! ;)</p>
