Bargain of the week

A new regular post I want to try out is featuring my favorite "bargain" of the week. I've been out of the coupon game for about a month now (by choice) & have kept my bargains to online deals---which have been plentiful! My goal is to be challenged to get back in the game and re-stock our linen closet and pantry before baby #2 arrives.

Anyways, this week...I could tell you about the great finds I found for baby #2, but that might give away the gender...and we don't want that! Or I could share about the Little People Trash Truck/recycling Truck toy we found at wal-mart for $5 (50% off) that Lucy loves...but that may be gifted to a cousin.

But favorite bargain of the week was found on Saturday. My husband and I bundled Lucy up and went out in the cold for a little New Years Day shopping. Needing a snack, we ventured to our favorite little pretzel place in the mall. After ringing up our two pretzels, water, and a dipping sauce, we had to question them that the price ($3.89) was correct.

Indeed it apparently they were running a "Buy one, get one" free promotion on their pretzels!

My favorite bargain is often the one you don't expect....and when you're pinching pennies and allowing yourself to indulge in a mall food court treat...well, it's quite the little blessing to discover your treat is half off! :)

What about you? Any good bargains this week??

  1. Good bargains? Yes! Ours was food related too! Due to snow, we travelled early and hit Sonic's happy hour without even thinking about it.
    I think your bargain was better - glad you got to enjoy the treat!
