It was a great couple of weeks for shopping on a budget. First, a week and a half ago, I found two skirts, a pair of capris, and a blouse at the local Goodwill, some still with original store tags, for a total of $14.00. Today I found a used breadmaker for $10.00 at another Goodwill store. I just took my first loaf out and can't wait to try it. It smells delicious! On Wednesday, I found a library that sells books that have been taken out of circulation. I got seven books for $7.00. Finally, at a local food discount store, I found strawberries and blackberries for $1.00 per carton, and cucumbers and bell peppers, 4 for $1.00. I hope I have more weeks like this!

The next year will go by whether I work toward my goals or not. Time to get to work.

I plan to buy that Peter Pan peanut butter today! Publix also has my coffee filters BOGO...

I usually check the deals I want on their ad and take it when I shop. Sometimes when you need to get a "raincheck" -- the clerk finds it helpful when I can point out the price on the ad right there on the spot.

I love buying clothes at thrift shops for a couple dollars each. Yesterday I went to the mall. Stores are having great sales to get rid of their summer stock. At Chico's I bought 2 capris, 3 tops and a necklace for an average of $20 each. The saleslip said I saved $97.77! It's nice having a few high quality things that fit perfectly should last for several years.
