Monday- Have A Drink On Me...

Went to Walmarts today... couldn't believe the deal on Easter stuff... everything from candy to baskets to decorations were all 20 cents a piece. These Bunny Big Ears made me laugh so hard I had to buy a couple of them. They are at least 18" long. Now there's some CHOCOLATE, and for 20 cents too.
Do you like to buy reduced priced items after a holiday and save them for the next year? Are you able to find all the stuff you bought for next year? Post a comment and receive an entry for today in this weeks contest.
My sister always buys the marked down stuff and stores them for the next year and then can never find them. Goes out and buys more in desperation, and then the next holiday when looking for stuff she won't find what she wants but all the Easter stuff will be found, LOL. me I have no place to store it so the 20 sale items I bought today will all get eaten by the men in the house no doubt before the week is over.
CONTEST WINNER from last week...
I had 94 comments in all, and REGIS has chosen the winner and it's comment #77. This belongs to Anita O. ongratulation Anita, please contact me with which set of stitch markers you would like me to send to you.
So I had to take my X-BIL to the hospital today for an MRI. He is in pretty bad shape and can barely walk, I insisted on pushing him in a wheel chair when he was done because he couldn't make the walk and he did NOT wanna listen to me. I was stern and he finally got in the chair. Ironically just a few short months ago I would have been the one getting pushed and not doing the pushing. Anyway when I was in the Walmart parking lot I parked next to this car and the window cling they had made me laugh... Where do people find these things?
But the best part of my day today was seeing this car in Walmart's parking lot. I felt so cool wipping out my just happen to have on hand camera and started shooting

Isn't that saying funny above the back window? The foam goes straight to the brain. LOL
Go ahead have a drink on me, LOL
Speaking o brains, mine just checked out and said time to go to sleep. I need to be out of the house by 7:30am tomorrow. Our cousin is having surgery and I plan on being there with her husband while he waits.
Good night everyone and sweet dreams.

usually I don't go shopping so I never get to see the after sale stuff.

I go after holidays for the candy on sale! That definitely doesn't make it to next year!

Congrats Anita O

I buy it, but I don't save it.

I used to always do the "day after" sales, but now that we don't have anyone to do holidays with, I don't have a need for all that stuff anymore. Sometimes I just go and look anyway. LOL

I didn't do it this year, but I do generally buy clearance merchandise after holidays. I'm pretty good about finding the stuff if it's small. I keep it stored in a large plastic tub.

I love the VW bug!

If I happen to be out and see something on sale, I may get it. But, I don't make a special "after the holiday" trip--like on Black Friday. Just can't do it!

Love that bug!!

Woo Hoo! I finally won one!

I do buy the sales after the holiday. but they don't last...and I'd have the same problem of storing and forgetting.
I got this huge stuffed jaguar once after Valentine's Day. It was $3 on clearance, and my 8 yr old still uses it as a pillow. Yes, it's as long as she is! What a bargain!

Congrats to Anita O.
Love the parking lot pics.
I needed one of those don't listen clings a few years back. ;)

This was the first year the Easter Bunny didn't hide eggs, so the boys were lacking their usual candy loot. I thought when I went to walmart the next day I would buy some marked down. No such luck...all the Easter candy was gone!! I was so disappointed :( You lucked out though...and 20 cents a piece. :)

I used to buy at the after holiday sales - but now I'm in that category of people who can't remember where they put the stuff the next year! Now, 20 cent chocolate - well, I wouldn't have to worry about finding that!

Maria said...

I just leave it in the store where it belongs! I will eat it and wonder why I bought it... as for decor, I just buy when I need or see something unique!
Congrats Anita O!!

Congrats Anita!

I don't usually buy much from after holiday sales. Can't seem to make it to the stores. If I do manage to get to the store, there's slim pickings because I didn't get there early enough. Most of the time I just don't have the willpower to go shopping for those big sales (like after Thanskgiving day).
