A Little Shopping

May 23rd, 2008 at 07:02 am

Went to Target and Best Buy yesterday. The reason for the Target visit was to look for a small desk for our office. We found it is very difficult to find a desk shorter than 44 inches -- the standard length seems to be about 47 inches, but that won't work in our space.

While at Target I stocked up on cards I need for upcoming birthdays, etc. Also I bought an ice pack that looks like Thomas the Train to send to my grandson, who is definitely at the stage where he is getting "boo-boo's." About $30 altogether.

Then to Best Buy, where I needed to get advice on my laptop, which had a faulty USB port. I bought a USB card with two ports, which neatly solved the problem for $67.

I also paid a doctor bill -- $37.

I should not spend anything else until my credit card cycle ends -- June 11. That's a long time! Well, I have a little cash, too. I think I can make it. (If in fact we do find a desk, my cousin will be buying it, so that is no problem!)

    To save money on cards Dollar General has some decent ones for $1.00 and $ .50 respectively.

    Yes, I have always meant to check out Dollar General for cards. However, I have been downsizing from sending gifts to sending cards in some cases, so the cards have to be special!

    I buy some cards at Dollar Tree but I also buy them at B.J.'s Wholesale Club. They are 1/2 price as is their wrapping paper, bows, bags, etc. I have found some really pretty cards at a decent price.
