Blue Monday!
Please  visit
to see  all of the other
Blue Monday fun!

While at work the other day,
I looked down at my feet
 and went OMGosh
my white shoes are pathetic!

So this weekend Jacob  and I 
went to the mall 
and  here are the shoes 
I  bought!

Not only are they  white,
but they are fun,
comfy, and they will
match all the colors of
my scrubs.
I'm excited.

Of course, 
we can't go shopping 
without stopping for lunch.....

filled the bill.
It must have been our lucky day!
They were having a special.

I, for one am going to miss
Circuit City. 
How about you?

I always received very friendly 
customer service.  I felt  the sales staff
was knowledgeable,  I always
got a deal.  Sometimes too good
to be true.  
That is probably why they 
have gone down in flames.

But we popped in to their 
Going Out of Business Sale
and I got  a new camera.

I've had my eye on this baby
for a long long time.
I have a Minolta Maxxum 7 camera,
an autofocus  SLR with interchangeable lenses.
Well, the lenses from that camera
are compatible with this camera body.

I can't believe the deal I got on it.
I was quoted  $525.00 
for the camera body and a lens.
Which was $225.00 off!  
I said "SOLD"!

I tossed in a new camera bag,
and a Compact Flash card .

Well, you know that Jacob couldn't
leave the store without something....
So he threw in some gear 
for his xBox and  a new 
guitar for his Rockband.

Then we waited in the very long  line
for the only cashier.

When we finally checked out
I paid $500.00!!!
Who am I to complain????
I said "Are you sure?"
He said he was!
With a very big smile!
We left the store and
 I rechecked my receipt.

I paid $6.00 for my camera bag,
$10.00 for the CF card,
$59.00 for the xBox junk, 
and only $425.00 for the camera!

I am going to miss Circuit City.

those are cute shoes. You're right, they do look "fun".
I'll miss circuit city too. WE got our big screen there (way back when they put Good Guys out of business).
What a great deal you got on all your stuff. Enjoy it all!

Your camera sounds awesome. Can't wait to see some photos from it.I haven't gone to there yet, can't think of anything I need. But I love bargins so much, I'll bet if I went there I'd find things I couldn't live without.:)

That sounds like a fun day. Shopping and pizza with Jacob. :)

Great deals and love your shoes. Circuit City near me left a lot to be desired, but still I hate to see another business go under.

Have a Wonderful Day!

Sounds like some great deals. The shoes look great and the camera will be a treat I'm sure. Happy Blue Monday to you...

nikkicrumpet said...

It's too bad they're gone...but you sure got some great deals! I guess we're gonna have to start shopping at Best Buy from here on out...farther away and not as nice a store. I'm sure this won't be the last of stores I love that will go out of business. :(

Love your cute shoes AND your great deals! Happy Blue Monday!

Elizabeth said...

I, too, will miss CC. One of the reasons I loved shopping there is that the salespeople were not on commission. I had a guy talk me DOWN from a huge TV to one more appropriate for my home that was half the price!
Plus I have had nothing but bad experiences with Best Buy, so I don't know what I'm going to do!

Amy Ellen said...

The shoes are cute and wow you got some great deals. I can tell your thrilled!!! ; )


JudyBug said...

Great deals! I'm so envious. I am just dying for a new camera!


salmagundi said...

Cute shoes!! Sounds like you will miss Circuit City. We've never shopped there very much - it was too far away. Guess we missed a bunch of deals over the years. Have a good week. Sally

Susie Q said...

Have fun with the new toy! : )
