Friday afternoon I thought it would be lots of fun to take Beebs and Annie to the mall...ride the carousel, a promise of a $5 or less prize from the Disney store, and some type of food treat. That all goes back to one of the questions from the Chapman castle, and yes, I am the crazy person that gave her children too much sugar on Friday afternoon, which is probably the reason I was "flusterated", a Beebs word, when we left the mall. That and the fact that I tried on bathing suits, because I am so tired of wearing the same one day after day to the pool, beach, grocery store, Lowe's. I always wear a cover up at the store. Anyway, I found two suits at Macy's after trying on maybe 1200! I now have buyer's remorse because the 25% sale on the suits at Macy's still made them about $75. I wore one and I love it and wouldn't trade it! The other one, not so much. I decided before I even left the store that I shouldn't have bought it and I am taking it back today. Yesterday I was talking to my friend, Roaming the Halls, and she told me to look at one of her fav websites for a swim suit, because she had gotten one there. It reminded me that I had found several that I liked earlier in the summer at Newport News, but I never pay full price, so I was waiting for them to go on sale. Then, RTH says, "Beauty and the Bates taught me to always look for a coupon code when buying something online!" That Ashley, she's a bargain hunter. Anyway, I found my few bathing suits (can't tell ya how many, b/c Daddy might read this), used my 20% off coupon code which saved me $18.60 and my free shipping code which still cost me $15 b/c I had to have them express shipped, and paid the same amount for my FEW bathing suits as I paid for one at Macy's. I was so happy with myself that I might just have to tell Daddy about that one! On second thought, "Oh honey, I've had these!" Thanks mom for teaching me right!
Moral of the story, buy online because you won't get "flusterated" at the mall and you can find huge savings! I love a good sale!!!
