BEHOLD THE BARGAIN SHOPPER

I love to bargain shop! I mean REALLY! I never really thought much about the way I shop, I shop like all the other women in my family. You know the "old and wise ones". I have been taught that the first place to look in the store is the clearance racks. I've also learned from them sayings such as "why pay full price?" and "if it isnt on sale I dont need it." Bargain shopping is such fun and that feeling you get, that thrill of the hunt feeling is great! Today the three kidlets and I made a trip to one of my favorite thrift stores in search of some new dresses for Miss. Hannah. No luck in the dress department but on the way out the door the boys noticed a game we used to have, Harry Potter scene it. We Love Harry Potter in our family and we had this game for a while until busted water pipes ruined it. Well I look thru the game and find that all the pieces are in it so I check the price. The game which can be found at stores like "Toys R' Us" for $20 I found at the thrift store for $2.99!! Thats right $2.99!! Ahh yes I am bargain hunter hear me roar!! Needless to say I snatched up that bargain and we spent the evening qiuzing eachother on Harry Potter trivia =-}

The old and wise one is proud of you! But really, I am not so old - just wise.
