City Trip and Boxing Day Sales

December 28th, 2011 at 01:35 am

I had a few things to do today, pay one of my credit cards off now in credit. Buy the groupís lotto ticket for Mega Jackpot on Saturday and I got this job for 2012. It would be nice to win something!

I walked past the departments stores and all retail stores with their Boxing Sales on and everything at 20 -70% off their regular price that may be the case with leftover Christmas lines that I do not need anytime in the next ten years. As for clothes I just donít need any, only a pair of Black flat court shoes with decent soles on them still canít find any in my size. I did see two styles that were right again not in my size so I walked on to the bank.

So what did venture into the shopping centre yield today something that I would have brought at my local shopping today paper for the TV weekly shows it a lot cheaper and you get more Free to Air channels in it than the Sunday paper. Cost $1.10.

I saw that our transport fares are going up again on Sunday so will be stay with my Go Card thatís for sure as paper ticket one way trip is now $2.00 cheaper to have a Go Card for the same trip. My normal fare will be going up 11 cents I think I can live with that one.

I had lunch with my Ex work colleagues today, we have been meeting up since we all were made redundant over 13 years ago, all of this group are retired.

We had lunch at the casino our $9.00 memberís meal deal of main meal, cake or fruit salad and coffee. I had Fish with Salad, piece of vanilla slice and coffee. No main meal for me tonight.

I spent only $4.00 playing the pokies as I like to play a little each time so to keep my membership card active.

So how much did I spend today, Boxing Day Sales Zero and Lunch Paper and pokies grand total of $14.10 and paid my Credit Card off.

    Kitty, I had to do a little bit of research on Boxing Day and if I understand correctly is like a Black Friday in the United States although it's for the next holiday season. Am I correct?

    Most likely it's a bit like that but the Boxing Day Sale goes on for month. The best marked downs are found in the first few days of the Sales.

    My house is overflowing with stuff and I never even put up much in the way of Christmas Decoration this year. So did not what to be temped in anyway just because of the cheap prices the money is better in MY pocket even if the retailers are having a tuff time with sales this year.
