Happy Pink Saturday!
A marathon Black Friday shopping trip always deserves a quick pick me up
and this Almond Roca always fills the bill! A tin or two made it into our cart
along with the Hickory Farms meat & cheese pack, and the little Black Scottie Dogs.
A small pause in the action, just to watch the fun animated figurines and scenes.
We are always a sucker for trains, after all Grampa worked for the railroad.
After squeezing all the paws of the singing and dancing puppies and pigs, and
pushing all the buttons on the little ice skaters and dancing Santas.....
We wandered past this set of very colorful Christmas trees, and at
$20 I think they are a steal, how about you? (I can't get this to stop
underlining my words - any suggestions?
We (okay the underlining stopped - why I don't know.....) went to all
the stores on Jacob's list. Menard's Cashway Lumber was our first stop, because
somebody wanted the small generator that was on sale for $99 (Half Price - woo hoo!).
I was told it would be perfect for camping.
Our next stop was the mall. Jacob has phy-ed next trimester and
needed gym clothes. (Which also meant he needed brand new boxers
just in case someone snuck a peak and his undies weren't "cool".)
After a run through the usual A&F, AE, Pacsun, Zumiez, etc. we grabbed
a quick lunch at Culver's, then popped into Walmart where we spotted all of
our Pink Saturday finds.
In the electronics department Jacob used the bar scanner on his
new cell phone to compare prices on a few items. The sale sign on the
products clearly stated that their prices were unbeatable! When we
approached the department manager that we found a lower price with his
scanner he refused to match it - even though the lower price was
from a neighboring Walmart just 4 miles away).
(He had two excuses - #1 - It wasn't a printed advertisement, and
#2 - They don't price match other Walmart prices, huh?)
That doesn't sound like they are unbeatable to me!
The bar scanner sure is handy though.
Later it dawned on us that not only could we check the prices on the items,
but we could check reviews on those items as well,
and I am glad we didn't buy them. One item had over a
dozen reviews labeled DON'T BUY THIS & THIS IS JUNK, etc. And a television we
looked at for my parents bedroom only had a 850:1 contrast ratio.
Well, that only means that I am still back at square one. I guess
tomorrow we will buzz over to Best Buy and Circuit City.
Hope you all have a Happy Pink Saturday!
