We went to Hobby Lobby again today to look at the 80% off stuff. We found two really pretty handblown glass lamps complete with shades. They were $99.99 each, but we paid only $19.99 each for them. I also got a beautiful coblat blue gas lamp for my bathroom vanity. It was $34.99 and I got it for $6.99. I bought a lamp shaped like a purse for my grnadmother for Christmas too. It was $24.99 and I paid $4.99. So, I got $260.00 worth of lamps for $52.00. I could have never brought myself to pay $200.00 for lamps. And, if by some strange reason I DID - Dh would kill me. Yard sale lamps are a tough buy for me because you still have to go buy a shade 9 times out of 10, so it isn't very often that it is a good deal. So, these were the deal for me.
We went to Deals to get AA batteries - the cheap ones are 16 for $1.00. They were out - darn them. They are great for all DH's cheapo toys and Plug-n-Play video games. They did have Blue Bunny Caramel Chocolate Somethingoranother ice cream for $1.00. We bought four and brought them home to the freezer. DH put them in the freezer and then announced that he didn't have his wallet. He mentally retraced his steps and the only time he had used it was right down the street to buy a fountain drink. He called and they had it under the counter. So, whoever turned that in - THANK YOU! I have done a lot of good deeds - returning birth certificates, checks floating acros the Wal-Mart parking lot, returning unmailed credit card checks, etc. So, I am glad I did all that and someone was nice enough to return it.
