I just went to KMart today and was also tempted by the 75% Christmas sale. I had two candle rings in my hands (each only $2 and change) and I was strong and put them back. Almost $5 that I didn't spend. Yay!
However, not the same thing happened at Walgreens today with food. They had Progresso soup, cereal, jello and toilet paper on sale, all with Walgreens and manufacturers coupons, and the mineral make-up I use (BYG1 free) plus coupon.
I'm going to have to move food items to the approved list because I can't see spending full price in a few weeks when I can save right now!
Well, at least I was good at KMart with the candle rings. But, I did get my son a winter coat he needed for 40% off; so were his gloves. Hmmm. It's hard to not spend anything; especially when things you need crop up. I guess my spenditures weren't frivilous. I can be happy about that, at least.
