Bargain Hunting Momma

I burned out the motor in my 10 year old blender over the weekend - don't ask. Impatience related....  I was bummed that I wouldn't be enjoying any more smoothies until I got a replacement. Then, I remembered that I saw a blender on the clearance rack at Target, but I couldn't remember the price. Today, I went for some other items and checked the end cap for clearanced blenders and lo - there it was, still.  I looked at the price tag - it said $29.99 originally $39.99.  That was a bit more than I was willing to pay - I was hoping for a $15 deal. Knowing that sometimes the price is lower than the actual sticker, I stuck it in my cart and took it to a price scanner. When I scanned it, the price said $9.98. What?! Hello!  That's what I'm talking about!

I just googled the make and model and found this. At Amazon it's selling for 39.99 and Macy's has it for 49.99. Honestly, I rarely if ever pay full price for anything and 75% off retail is my zone.

Okay, so I know this doesn't seem very mom related. However, I have found so many good deals on kid related items and clothes. I love finding inexpensive clothes for my kids - especially when I know it won't last long.

I am very fortunate to live in a area that hosts a dozen or more children's consignment sales throughout the year.  I try to only go the last day when things are marked 50% off. Well, I went to one in February and found these great Merrell girls shoes for Elisabeth. They were in very good condition almost like new and I only paid $1.50 for them. When I searched on the internet I found that they retail for $35. That is like a 95% savings.

I LOVE a good deal!
