My Treat! or Rather, Treats!!!

Thursday, October 31, 2013

I spent the day at the mall today and spent a little more than a hundred ringgit. Actually, I spent a little more than RM120, that's about USD40. I bought some moisturizer for RM24.50, 2 pairs of low rise panties for RM39, a pair of lovely earrings for RM32.40 (10% off for members, thank God I remembered my member card!), and RM19.80 for 230 grams of Famous Amos Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies!

I only got the cookies because the salesgirl was so nice to me! She let me try 3 variants without charge. In other words, she gave me 3 cookies on the house! I felt bad not buying anything. As 100 grams was not enough if I wanted to share them with my family, I decided to buy 200 grams, and I even got an extra 30 grams just because it was a Thursday. Apparently, they were having an anniversary promotion! An extra 50 grams on Tuesdays or an extra 30 grams on Thursdays if you buy at least 200 grams!

Imagine, it's not like I bought a truckload of stuff! I mean, I only bought like 4 items and I spent more than RM120! Even if you went grocery shopping here, you can easily spend more than RM200! I shudder to think about parents with little children! No wonder there are so many double income families! You just can't survive on one income in this case!

    Glad you had a fun shopping day. Free cookies, WOW!
You're right, prices are rising a lot. I'[ve really noticed it these past few months too.

    Sounds like a fun day out. It's odd to see any one-income family these days. It's unfortunate!

I'm glad you had a good day!
