I love reading some of those blogs that have great deals listed. I love the free samples and latest coupons they blog about. I have even read some reviews they posted and then went out and got the item they reviewed (or avoided like the plague if they had a bad review about it).
I always think to myself, they are so lucky to find all those bargains. I know a lot has to do with the amount of stores they have to choose from and the competition between those stores. Living here in a small town with the biggest competition being between two dollar stores, I don't normally find great deals.
Well, I found my first really good bargain at a chain store last week. We visited the cite on our family day last week and stoped to do a little shopping at Target. (We rarely get to go to Target!) I was wanting to get a good set of wash cloths and couldn't decide on the set I wanted. Hubby wondered off and found a bargain area they have. (Normally I know where all the bargain areas are in the stores I shop and go there regularly. I call them junk aisle. lol!) I was amazed with there bargain area. They had a package deal of 4 fluffy white towels for $9.99 and dusting clothes marked down to a crazy low price too. I don't remember what the price was, but that is what Hubby thought I was looking for. What I did find was packages of Women's and Girls underwear marked down to $2.49! I also saw Men's underwear and socks marked down too. We had just got Hubby some new socks and paid $7.00 for 6 pairs. They had 10 pairs for $4.00! Hubby also found a twin blanket he just had to have to cover up with. It was nice and fleece and warm looking. It was marked down to $6.00.
So what did I end up paying? Well I got two packs of Women's underwear and the fleece blanket for:
Women's Underwear at $2.49 (marked down from $8.99)
And that was my big Bargain! I know it doesn't compare to the ones my bloggy friends in the city find, but I am still proud of it. LOL!
