Adam and I took a ride up to Marquette on Saturday to see Dawn & Ben while they were in town. We did some shopping before we met up with them because I was looking for a couple baskets to use as pretty storage in the living room. After A LOT of searching, I ended up remembering that I had a couple things at home in our boxes o’ stuff that would work. Bonus! I have cute storage AND we saved money.
Anyway… while we were shopping at Target Adam stopped at the $1 bins at the front of the store. We found some great little decorating touches for the Cinco de Mayo party we’re having. YAY! Cute and cheap! As we were on our way to meet Dawn & Ben, I remembered that we picked up some margarita glasses for Bonnie at a dollar store once. We were passing the little mall where a dollar store was so I yelled, “Adam! Hit the breaks! We have to get dollar margarita glasses!” Screeeeeeeeeech Kickass! TWELVE margarita glasses for $12.72. The best deal I found previous to that was $17.95 + shipping for 12 plastic glasses at Oriental Trading. I justified getting 12 by telling him we can also use the glasses for desserts at family gatherings.
I found that I’ve become quite resourceful at getting stuff I want even though we’re making less money then we use to. I use to own a house, keep up with payments, and get everything on my current wage once before. I don’t see why I can’t do it now… at least until I find my dream job again!
