The kids and I had some errands to run this morning. We went to Meijer’s for a few things. Then we headed to Aldi’s for a few things.
We have a gate that keeps the dogs out of the kitchen that needs to be replaced. We picked one up at Meijer’s for $50. I did NOT want to spend $50 to keep the dogs out of food that they should leave alone anyway. But, our old gate (which was purchased years ago at Goodwill for under $5) has long out-lived its functional life. When I’m moving a big object to help hold up the gate . . well, yes I should have replaced it some time ago.
After finally breaking down and spending the $50 at Meijer for the gate; we found almost the exact same gate when we went to Aldi’s for $20!!! The Meijer gate is in my van and will be going back tomorrow!
Later in the day, the hubster and I were browsing in Goodwill and found a Scrabble Premier edition! It has a wood case, a drawer to store the pieces, and sits on a lazy Susan to turn towards each player. It was remarkably still in its original box and it had all its pieces! It was $5.99. The cheapest that I can find it on eBay with shipping right now is around $100. I’m sure it has to be cheaper somewhere else. But, in the mean time, I’m still more than happy with our $5.99 price today!
Tonight I am thankful for some good savings today! We weren’t even out looking for savings today! They were just there! 🙂
