Day 192.

Saturday, July 11, 2009

I had to stock up on some snacks for church and so I headed to Costco this morning. Sometimes things at these warehouse clubs cost more than the regular size, and offer no real value to buying in bulk. But other times I see something (like a 10 lb. bag of organic brown rice) and get all excited.

I am grateful for a good deal.

There is something (maybe in my Mennonite blood?) that gets giddy over a good deal. So, the store brand earth-friendly automatic detergent that was half price of Cascade, was exciting.

My problem is I find it hard to stop at just one deal or two. I want to find good deals on things I don't necessarily need (guess that's NOT the Mennonite blood...). So, it's a fine dance of buying things for the good deal and not buying good deals I don't really need. I'm still working on that one...

  1. I am so with you on the good deal! I probably end up spending the same amount of money or more that I could of saved bc I buy too many good deals:)
