More Super Shopping
October 24, 2007
After months of drought, the rain has finally set in. I work in the office of a construction business, so yesterday things were really quiet and slow. Most of my co-workers jumped ship shortly after noon yesterday in favor of taking naps and drinking beer, which left me to hold down the fort. I had a highly productive afternoon researching all things Bon Jovi, increasing my token value by playing online games, and catching up on 2 episdodes of “How I Met Your Mother”.
My boss graciously came in relieved me of my duties 45 minutes early. Being as my mother and I carpool on the days she works, I had time to kill before going to pick her up. I had a $10 off coupon for JC Penney’s that was nearing it’s expiration, so I ventured to the store to put it to good use. My findings there amazed even me, master of the good bargain.
Upon entering the store I found an NFL under-armor type shirts with the Titans logo for my oldest for $1.97 (originally $25). In the mens section I found a nice dress shirt for my stepdaughter’s boyfirend for $1.97 (originally $30) and a plain ringer tee for myself, also $1.97 (originally $16).
As thrilled as I was with my finds, I meandered around a bit looking for something else to finish out my $10 coupon, without going too much over. Everything I found for myself would’ve put it way over, and I didn’t want to spend alot of money with the holiday’s coming up. Eventually I settled on 2 pairs of jeans for my youngest, which were 2 for $10 (originally $9.99 each).
That’s right, that’s $90.99 (retail) that I paid $6.28 for. I’m quite proud of myself.
