This afternoon, I accompanied Miss Em to the doctor so she could have an ear infection looked at. It turned out to be a frugal visit (tongue in cheek here) because, in addition to a killer ear infection, she had tonsillitus. Oh, and then she had two vaccination shots. Oh, and she had a wart burned off her hand. All for one copay. The doctor marveled at her stoicism.
Then, we went across the road to Target to have her prescription filled. While waiting the 20 minutes, we wandered into one of my least favorite stores, Marshalls. There we hit the motherlode of bargains: Talbots merch from last spring for about 80% off! We tried on a few things at ridiculously low prices. We even got on line with two items.
And then, Readers, we put it back. It wasn't the money. Our two items would have come to $24.00. BUT WE DIDN'T NEED IT.
Thank you, Duchesse, for your post this morning.
So, if you are a Talbots addict, you can go to Marshalls, if you dare. There was a ton of stuff. But Miss Em and I came home and drank some of the Mexican hot chocolate we bought (on sale!) at Target. And Miss Em is feeling much better, now that she's taking some medicine.
Any victories in the face of bargain-temptation to report?
