Great weekend for deals!

Dylan & I made a trip to Springfield today. Our intentions were JCP, Kidco (to spend our $48 store credit), & garage sales.

We got a good deal on some jeans for both Kalli & Dylan @ JCP and me a cute summery dress, got some cute things from Kidco but my favorite stop wasn't even a place we had planned to stop for - an antique store in Republic.

Check out this beauty...not only does it match the entertainment center, it's super solid, it's Broyhill & it was $20.00! Can you believe it? I LUV it! I figured Jerry would kill me since we have plenty of coffee tables around here but he didn't even complain - either 1) because he saw the great deal that I got in it or 2) he's learned to live with me & my deals. :) LOL




Check out those awesome legs!



I also picked up the citronella lantern (which I'll just put a candle in) & the bingo spinner there. Fun place....I may just have to plan on going next weekend.

Then tonight we made a trip in Lowe's. We are clearance shoppers at Lowe's - like tonight - sometimes we'll just go to look at their clearance stuff. Last time we found a $350 table saw for $100. Tonight we found clearanced out plants. Most were annuals but they had nice planters so we decided to get them just for that. They were marked $1 each but after hearing another guy bargain on clearance items, we tried & got our plants for .50 each. So - word to the wise - if you are purchasing a few of the same item - see if they'll give you a better price. Oh and the girl working also mentioned that every weekend they try to get rid of a lot of clearance so they'll usually cut you a good deal. Hopefully I can get these to last a little longer & then find me some cute perennials to plant in them.

Don't forget to check out everyone else's great finds over at Rhoda's party!

Good tips on the Lowe's stuff!!! I bought some petunias once from Kmart and got a great deal b/c a couple of them looked deadish...they always perk up with water. :) Thanks for stopping by!
