It has been a while since I participated in "Thrifty Thursday" hosted by Leigh @ Tales of Bloggeritaville. http://lbratina.blogspot.com/ . Thanks Leigh for hosting this weekly event.
I made a trip to HL the first of last week looking for something in particular (which I did not get as did not have a 40% off coupon), but did check out the sale section. Only a few Christmas decorations were left and was 90% off. A lot of what was left was broken or kinda/sorta tacky looking, but I did get 2 boxes of ornaments and some clear red large bulbs. I don't have any strings of large bulbs - so why did I buy these you ask? I thought they would look good in an apothecary jar during the holidays. Actually I wished I had gotten some more, but they are probably gone by now.
Final Price -
I also bought a couple of things at Cracker Barrel for 70% off, but have not yet taken photos - I need to get busy.
Be sure and visit Leigh to see what "thrifty buys" she and the other participants have to share with us this week.
We are having temps in the 50's - low 60's this week (with rain), but back to Winter starting Monday.
A few days before Christmas, I found it necessary to activate "comment moderation". Then due to a differnt type of issue, I feel I should not accept comments from "Anonymous" readers at this time. To the legitimate readers that have commented as "anonymous" - I apologize. While skipping (skipping my foot! I don't even walk very well these days) thru "blogland" these days, it appears I am not the only one having to deal with some unwelcome visitors.
Hope everyone is having a good week!
ETA:Maybe I need to explain - I don't have a problem with constructive criticism. What I do have a problem with is, those out there leaving comments with "Links" to another site trying to use my blog site for advertising purposes, for sites that I consider "undesirable" and/or "unsafe" websites, and some other issues I don't care for.
