1. I got a dress for $9.97
Old Navy sent me an email about a one-day sale they had on a few dresses, so I clicked on over.
As you know, I tend to buy things in very neutral colors, but the $9.97 dresses were not available in anything neutral.
So…I bought one in a bright color.
Are you shocked??
In case you didn’t notice…it has pockets!
I think this might be useful into the early months of cold weather if I throw a denim jacket on over top of it. So, hopefully I can get some wear out of it this year, even though it’s late summer right now.
2. I went to a free symphony concert
I got a local mailing that mentioned a free outdoor symphony concert and I thought, “Hmm, why not? I haven’t been to see an orchestra in forever!”
The ticket was free, and so was admission to the park.
And happily, they played several pieces that I was quite familiar with, like some Copeland. I always think orchestral concerts are more fun when you’ve heard the pieces before!
3. I got some marked-down sausages at Giant
I was there for a watermelon, but I noticed they had quite a few packages of chicken sausages (both raw and pre-cooked) marked down for quick sale.
So, I bought several packages and put them in my freezer for future use.
4. I bought a textbook for Zoe on Amazon
She ended up switching health classes (it turns out that we’d registered her for a non-entry-level one by mistake!) and I almost pressed the easy button and bought her book at the college bookstore ($97).
But I found a used, like-new version on Amazon for $27. OH YES.
It’s not a book Zoe is going to need after this semester, so I will sell it on eBay as soon as she’s done with it in December.
I never let textbooks sit around here for long! 😉
