Happiness is......Bargain Shopping!

Oh how I love a good bargain! As today is Matts last day off work I totally took advantage of him! (Love you x) just before Liberty went for her nap I headed to the shops. I had a credit card gift voucher to spent at Adairs. I finally decided on a Mercer & Reid quilt cover, pillow slips and pillow. I will take a photo when I put it on the bed. RRP for the lot was about $210....I paid $5.80...I LOVE sales! Then I headed off to Big W where I picked up a Chrissy dinner set, paper, ribbon, stockings, nice quality chocs, tim tams, lots of junk lollies for the kids birthday party's etc. Again I worked out it would normally be just over $200.....I paid......$12.90. No Christmas item was over $1, when I got to the register she rang nothing over 50 cents....
So I didn't get any scrapping done!!! My plan for tonight is to tidy my space. (again lol) Since I share a room with Matts office and he organised his side ready for a new work year, I better do my side.
Have a good night everyone!
