We are just at the start of what is supposed to be a pretty nasty winter storm. So I decided to fill up the car today. Better safe than sorry. Also, gas was at a decent price of $2.89 (and since when is $2.89 a decent price???) so I wanted to take advantage of that before it shot up as it has a tendency to do during these kinds of winter storms. So I ended up spending $41.35.
Then I went to the Mall with my Mom to do some Christmas shopping. I spent $5.79 at Macy's and got a very nice top for someone on my list. My budget for this person was $15 and the top was originally $30 but between markdowns, coupons, and discounts the price came to $5.79. Not bad! I am getting very lucky with Christmas gifts this year.
I also spent $11.64 at Sears on a toolbox and a small screwdriver key chain. I somehow was given a $2 discount here on top of the sale prices. I have no clue as to WHY but I sure wasn't going to question it, either! These items are going towards the $75-$100 budget I have for this person, a big chunk of which I already spent last week at Best Buy.
Are you done with your Christmas shopping yet? I just have a couple gift cards yet to buy and I might pick up a few trinkets for a friend who might be in town but basically, I am now done!
