Too good not to share

I love a good deal.  I clip coupons from the Sunday paper, but that's usually the extent of it for me.  I am not willing to spend my entire life shopping at six different stores so that I only have to pay $20 a week for groceries.  That being said, though, I do get a serious high off getting a good deal.  So, last week, when I happened to stumble upon some newly marked-down clearance sales at Walmart, I was in a bit of a frenzy.  Here's what I ended up with:

That's a Tonka truck, Mega Blocks Garage and Gas Station, Playdough Burger Builder set, 2 Buzz Lightyears, 2 Old Spice deodorants, 2 Old Spice body washes, 6 pairs of kids' pajamas, a pair of workout capris (for me!), and a toy shopping cart.

Grand total?


Yeah, I felt pretty good about that.  We are basically done shopping for both our boys' birthdays, and we picked up a few things for birthday party gifts, to boot.  And in case you were wondering, yes, I am aware we don't have any girls, and no, I am not pregnant.  I figured those little girl jammies might make a good shower gift for someone.

Wow...I think I just got a 'high' out of reading your post. What a steal! I am becoming increasing addicted to getting a good deal myself.

You totally got lucky! I went there shortly after I talked to you that day and there was nothing good!
