Doing my part for the economy

I think I've said it before on this blog, but I love a good deal. Seriously, I've never done drugs and will never need to because all I need to do to get high is buy a cute pair of jeans at 80% off.

Last night, with Fred and my dear daughter in tow, I went to a bunch of stores and hit the motherload. I did so well that I decided to post a picture of all my bounty and how much I saved.

In this picture:
*double-sided tape
*two shirts for Elise from Old Navy
*a paint set for Elise
*a package of 14 bracelets (for Elise)
*some cool plastic jungle animals
*Crayola markers
*L'Oreal face cleanser
*Ponds face towelettes
*Ziploc snack bags
*Fusion gift set (razor, shaving gel, hydrating gel, body wash, and deodorant)

So how much do you think all this originally cost? $53.81

How much do you think I paid? $12.72

It might take me days to come down off of this one.

Holy cow! How'd you do that? Coupons? I'm impressed!

Coupons and a little something called the clearance section. The shirts I got for Elise were marked down from $8.50 to 47 cents!
