A Day In the Life of a Bargain Shopper

Dear Husband,

Thank you for not working the day after Christmas so that I could aimlessly walk around stores looking for a good bargain.

Love,
Your Wife who loves a bargain

Dear Kohls,

Thank you for starting off my shopping adventure with some nice slippers for a nice price so that my husband doesn't have to feel left out anymore because he is the only one who didn't get new slippers for Christmas.

Sincerely,
A lady with cold floors in her house

Dear Target,

50% off is not clearance! 50% off is a sale price. I can get these prices before Christmas, therefore I will not be buying any of your items and storing them for a year.

Signed,
Extreme Bargain Shopper

Dear Target Shoppers,

Why are you all going nuts and filling your carts full with all of these Christmas "bargains". $2 for a roll of wrapping paper is not cheap. Do I need to give you all a lesson in Clearance shopping?

Signed,
Extreme Bargain Shopper

Dear Lady at Target,

When someone has a shopping cart the size of Texas, do you think you could be patient enough to let her maneuver her cart or are you in that big of a hurry.

Sincerely,
The lady with the big cart

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Mom,

I wish I could tell you how sorry I am for being so annoying when I was a kid and we went shopping. Don't worry my kids are making up for it. I'm not sure how many times I heard today, "my feet hurt", "I'm tired", "I want to go home".

Love,
Your Daughter

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Lowes and JoAnns,

I have nothing to say to you. You were a disappointment.

Sincerely,
Frustrated Shopper

Dear TJMaxx,

I refuse to stand in your long line for 2 rolls of wrapping paper and some hooks. I put my items back. Don't worry, I still love you and will be back again.

Signed,
A Loyal Shopper

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Alex and Amanda,

Sorry for dragging you in a million stores. I saw those cute stockings at Target with the letters on but they didn't have an I for Isaac. I became determined to find stockings. You did whine a lot but it was somewhat justified.

Love,
Your determined Mom

Dear Menards,

Your Dutch sale was a dissapointment to this Dutch girl.

Signed,
Cheap Dutchwoman

Dear Girl sitting smack dab next to your boyfriend in the pick-up truck in Walgreens parking lot,

The only thing I have to say to you is, "Really????"

Sincerely,
The woman in the mini-van that has been married for over 9 years

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Walgreens,

You have been so good to me with bargains the last couple years I am not sure why I chose to leave you until last. Thank you for being the only place with lots of cheap wrapping paper.

Signed,
A relieved bargain shopper

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear Dollar Store,

Since I did not have much luck shopping today, I think you will be seeing me next year for the rest of my Christmas wrapping needs.

Sincerely,
A lover of all things that are only $1

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear house,

Why did you not clean yourself up while I was gone? Now I have to make the kids do it!

Signed,
The lady who is trying to ignore the after Christmas mess

I just recently came across your blog and love it! Not sure if you remember me (I went to school with Nikki). Have you ever found a stocking with an "I" for Isaac. I have an Isaac also and am frustrated that I can never find one. I may have to find a friend who has a special sewing machine and then she can sew an I on his stocking for me.

Hi Rachael,
Yes, I do remember you and it's good to hear from you. I heard you had moved recently and I hope you are settling in and enjoying your new home. Last year after Christmas I did find and "I" stocking at Target. I didn't buy it b/c I couldn't find all the letters I needed for my other kids. So, you could try there maybe they have them again this year.
