After Christmas Deals


**Side Note: I am not sure why the picture is flipping sideways, sorry!

Have I mentioned that I totally LOVE, LOVE, LOVE shopping for really CHEAP stuff. In regards to after holiday sales I do not feel that 50%-75% off is a good deal. A good deal is when holiday items are marked down to 90%!

Yesterday I stopped in at Dollar General to pick up some dog food and low and behold their Christmas stuff was FINALLY marked down to 90% off. I picked up 2 wreaths, 3 hanging plaques, 2 decorative towel sets, 2 little trees, 4 candles, 2 packs of tissue paper and 5 baskets for $4.00. Most of the items will not even be used at Christmas as I have other ideas in my head for them. I am actually letting paint dry on one of the items I bought turning it into a Valentine decoration which will cost me 35 cents!!!

Yippy...I have a Dollar General right down the road from me...now it is in a town of about 300 folks but I do love the cheap things you can get there when they go on sale. I am on my way after work and see what we have...Now I do have that Happy Holiday sign...don't tell me what you paid cause I paid full price. Can't wait to see all your goodies you have come up with. I know I am going to llok for baskets cause someone bought some at the Dollar Store and then painted them a mint color and I loved them...never even thought of that.

Welcome to blogland!! I came over from Rambling girl!! I have some of my photos turn sideways at times...I don't get it either, but it usually fixes if I redo it.

I love bargains, too and have picked some up lately myself at the 90% off...3 upgraded Christmas rolls of wrapping paper and curling ribbon all for $1.56!!

You're going to love blogging...hope you stop by sometime!!

Blessings,
Becky
