Spending Spree

December 26th, 2006 at 01:41 am

Well itís Boxing Day here. I did look at the sale catalogues that arrived this week-end. Only item that I needed and as I was given gift card for that store, I decided to go and buy a Teflon frypan that was 50% off. (RRP $44.49 at another store.) Saving $25.88 as I get a staff discount on top.

After I went to look at the supermarket where I get staff discount also, all Christmas line were 50% off also. I did run-a-muck here. The items that were on special were items that I could use as gifts or as extra Christmas gift along with the frypan. I found the packs of Bows that I was looking for 3x, saving $3.06, gifts tags 2x saving $2.34, Door decoration 1x saving $$3.50.

Mixed Gift packs for next year x3 saving $14.81 and mixed Food gift packs $13.86.

At the next store I only bought another food gift pack saving $6.50 here.

When I went to the other supermarket in the shopping centre, and got some lunch for bananas 4x a luxury here but the price is now only $3.98 kg, 3 months ago it was $15.98kg. Walking around looking if they had put their Christmas lines on special too! Which they hadnít I found some frozen Turkey Thigh Roll @ 50% of, last one left too! Saving $3.65 here. I will cook it for my birthday next month. I only spent $67.55 for the day including what was bought on my gift card. Saving a grand total $73.60 on the day.

As it was raining when I left the shopping centre, so I had to wash down my car later in the day. Well, I can wash my car in a litre of water and still have half of that water left to put on my garden when I am finished, I am using thick micro-cloths, one is a glove and other is thick flat square one and glass micro-cloth. I do dust the car down first if itís not being rained on like today. It was over 20mm of rain. $$$Another Strategy

Todayís Full price Tally $141.15
Todayís Savings $ 73.60
2006 Total $-t-r-e-t-c-h Savings Tally $8714.82
