While I was at the pharmacy, I noticed that they had some holiday gift wrap and bows on clearance. I hadn't planned on buying holiday gift wrap, but I didn't have any at home and I had used up my stash of holiday gift bags, so I decided that some gift wrap and bows would be a good idea.
|Dancer Inspecting the Gift Wrap|
Especially since they were on sale for 90% off! The rolls of gift wrap (130 sq. ft.) was originally priced at $7.99 each. The bag of 24 bows was originally priced at $5.99.
I wouldn't pay $7.99 for a roll of wrapping paper, but, I would pay $.79. Same for the bows.
My total would have come to $2.17. But, I had a $2 off coupon! So, the total came to $.17 plus $.02 tax for a grand total of $.19!

90% off sales are my favorite!
The receipt tells me I saved $21.80, but, not really, because I wouldn't have bought them when they were full price! The way I look at it, I saved $2 because of the coupon.
After I came home, I relaxed and typed up my 2017 grocery spending recap. I also took the kitchen trash out and took the big trash bin and yard waste bin to the curb for pick up, tomorrow. Later, I did a load of laundry, which is hanging up to dry, overnight. My friend R called and we chatted for awhile and I exchanged emails with another friend. Still later, I video chatted with daughter. Need to clean the litter box before going to bed.
Today's breakfast was a banana; lunch was leftover Thai food; dinner was pasta with the last of the shrimp curry, and I am having a tangerine, now.
Today, I am grateful for:
- My medication refill was approved and refilled by the pharmacy, which I feel was an answered prayer
- A bargain on gift wrap and bows
- A day off from work
- Phone calls and emails from friends
- Chatting with my daughter
