Yesterday I went to a couple of stores that offered me coupons for free items. I picked up a pillow and two play shirts for my grandson's birthday at Penney's. The out of pocket cost was $2.10. (How could I resist the nice weather? It was calling me to leave the house.) The next stop was Victoria's Secret where I turned in a coupon for a free pair of undies. They will be gifted to my daughter as they were not my style. They were made more for a younger woman.
|I wasn't expecting a top of the line pillow for free, but|
I was happy to see they gave me a firm one.
|The shirts were priced at $10.00 each. On sale they were offered for $5.99.|
With my coupon I paid $2.10. The lady behind me told me what a good bargain I
got. I agree, don't you?
I did a couple more errands then came home instead of going to Kohl's to turn in my two free $5.00 coupons. (On $5.00) The errands did me in so I thought I'd come home for a rest. Today I went to Kohl's and the Dollar Tree.
I found an outfit for my grandson for his upcoming birthday. Pants and a long sleeve top for his next growth cycle. You know the one. When a child wakes up one morning and nothing fits because he/she grew during the night. It's normally a quiet process and takes a mom unaware.
|It's a bit difficult to see the color, but the outfit is|
in different shades of blue. Grandma's favorite color.
The Dollar Tree was busy this afternoon, but I took my time anyway, ignoring the hustle around me. I found a couple of items for the Easter table to add a spark for the grands. The candy jar was calling for some new treats so I got bubble gum shaped like Easter eggs and Life Savers in spring flavors and colors. Adding the colorful pink polka dotted straws to the table will create a bit of an excitement. The religious part of Easter has always been the part of the adults to explain to the children, and the bunny part is the excitement part for the kids. This way they know the meaning behind the day and have some fun, too.
|This was transformed into...|
|this. Just a bit of fun for the children.|
