Don’t Forget the Sales!

Hey everyone. I am not cheap, but I like a good deal. When I headed over to Walgreen’s today I saw that they had Monster energy drinks on sale for a dollar, which is about half price. I don’t know if it’s that price at every Walgreen’s, but I picked up two dozen of them. No, I’m not going to drink them all in one night. 😉

When I was there I also saw that Valentine’s Day merchandise is half off. There were some cute stuffed animals, loads of candy (which I did not buy for fear of what it would do to my hips and ass), gifts, candles, etc. My advice? Do what I did and buy a bunch of the stuffed animals and then put them up in a closet and give them as gifts next year. Can’t do that with candy, but you can do it with the cute little novelty gifts.

Speaking of candy, if any of you live near Chicago or the Illinois/Wisconsin border area, there are some great sales going on at the Premium Outlets in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. I bought 20 pounds of dark chocolate peppermint bark for $12.50 at the Ghirardeli outlet there. Then I bought a bunch of cute gift canisters at a local department store and filled them with the peppermint bark. They make great gifts and I love surprising people with little gifts so I threw them together and passed them out to people I know. Seriously, who can pass up 20 pounds of chocolate for $12.50 even if you don’t eat any of it yourself and just pass it out?

The Wilson’s Leather outlet at the mall there is having a huge sale too. They had a leather jacket by Guess for less than $50. The Coach store was also having a sale. Seriously, if you’re going to go just plan to hit each of the shops and make a day of it. But be CAREFUL. You can literally blow thousands of dollars there in a single day if you can’t control your shopping. Trust me, I know 🙂
