After hitting three stores and getting some GREAT deals, I found this in my bloglines.
Who knew it was "Buy Nothing Day," not me. I got the memo too late.
I don't feel guilty, not even a bit. I bought things I was planning to buy. FOR HALF THE PRICE.
I even encountered NICE people. I stood in line for an hour at Younkers. I NEVER shop there but they had the one item, for the boy, that we wanted to get him. They opened at 5, I got there at4. The gentlman standing next to me in line was a really nice guy. They home schooled their 3 kids. It was actually fun,waiting. Cold. But fun.
Then at Meijer's I encountered ANOTHER nice person. YEAH nice people!
And then at K-Mart, THE STORE MANAGER, helped me find the item I wanted.He stuck with me and then retrieved it from a coke display. Someone had stashed it there. It took a minute but he was successful. So he was nice. His store was crazy but he was nice.
So after shopping this morning I know I am not the only one who missed the memo. How about you? Get any great deals?
