2 men’s shirts for FIL’s birthday this week. Watch carefully:

Clearance price with tax: $17.22 savings of 79.98!!!! WOW! (had budgeted $20!)
YAY! Today went well. I went with a plan, and a budget and stuck to it. I’m not going for much this month – trying to clear out some excess in the pantry and freezer. That’s really the first time I’ve bought beef boullion & garlic in literally 4 years! Those giant things last foooorever! The Birthday gift was just an amazing thing – I saw that JCP was having a sale, and knowing that I had commited to getting FIL a new shirt for his birthday, I went over after Sam’s last night to get his gift. I only saw the clearance price – tbh I never even looked at the original price. When I got in the car and saw the “SAVINGS” on the receipt, I nearly choked. WHO pays $100 for two shirts?? Seriously – do people do that? *gasp.*
At any rate, I got him the shirts, plus a 15% coupon for next time. Good thing since my dad’s birthday is at the end of the month – he needs other things besides shirts I’m certain.
Also – God is good – I sent my taxes in Monday, they were accepted yesterday and praise God we’re getting only $700 short of our mortgage! We’re going to be 100% debt free by February 23!!! I can’t wait.
More musings from me later – my oldest little was supposed to stay at my IL’s house last night, and I have to confess I was looking forward to a little extra project time today, and I was selfishly going to sleep in this morning. 10pm last night brought someone knocking on our front door – nearly scaring me senseless as I was in the kitchen for a late night snack, but it was our sweet MIL and our little – he had cried too much to come back home and she made the late night 30 mile trek back to our home. So wake up time was at 6 as expected. 🙂 Anyway…..
