We visited Grandma yesterday so I had some free time to go shopping alone. At Big Lots. Big Lots has always been a big weakness for me and my wallet. Oh, those close out prices and weird lots of stuff.
I want you to know that I walked almost every aisle yesterday, pushing a cart that was empty except for my purse. I left spending $1.01 in cash for a box of plain envelopes. My stock pile from Grandma's house has been decimated by rebates.
It felt weird and good to buy only something I needed even though I tried (I really did) to find all the bargains.
Similarly, I also went to the salvage grocery where I usually spend $50 and up. I walked every aisle in that store too and only spent $20 on things for my basement pantry stock. (Who can resist 75 cent bottles of Juicy Juice?)
