We need a new Freezer

March 26th, 2008 at 01:36 am

Our hand me down freezer is having trouble staying shut so DH hooked up a bungee cord to the door. So today we went hunting for a new freezer. It is just the two of us so we are thinking a smaller freezer, but ours is stuffed full!

Fortunately or unfortunately while walking through Sears I noticed a 70% off sign above a rack of baby girl clothes.
I bought four items:
A cute red corduroy long sleeved dress with little scottie dogs on it for $4.97.
A long sleeved snap crotch red turtleneck with embroidered hearts on the turtleneck for $1.97.
A cute little pink playsuit with pink ballerina shoes appliqued with "baby ballerina" embroided on it for $3.97.
Total with tax $10.35.

Then I went to Borders to buy a book for my great-nephew who is turning 1. I knew what I wanted, a book named "I Am A Bunny".

Of course when I walked in there were a bunch of children's books cheap. I ended up getting two for great-nephew and 4 for Ally Ayn, all for just over $23.00.

Okay the key to not spending money is Don't Go Shopping!

    It's a fine line. Sometimes buying great deals is the thing to do, if they will save you money down the line. Sometimes it's just money you didn't need to spend. Only you can decide.

    I found a rack like that at Sears before my Allie was born. Remember just because you bought it in one trip doesn't mean you have to give it in one trip. I spread stuff out over the cheer you up on bed rest, baby shower, hospital, and coming home.

    My dad had a freezer (correction, still has it) that wouldn't stay shut well enough so he went and bought a $5 part that twists shut helping it close tighter and stay closed. Worked like a charm and that meant the total cost to him was $35 ($30 for the freezer itself)!

    Sometimes simple fixes can save a lot of money.
