The title sounds kind of fun but this is just a normal, "here's what I bought and that's what I paid for it" blog post.
I picked up some groceries on the way out of work today even though I'd contemplated making this another no spend. I wanted to get in on the 10 items for $10 get the 11th item free sale and I knew that if I didn't pick up a solid set of 11 things today I might miss it. So I did that. And then I spent another $17.48 on a few other good sale items and some stuff I need to make veggie lasagna on Saturday for my mom's birthday.
I also took advantage of some clothing clearance deals. I'm NOT a big shopper so I was only able to force myself to get two things but I'm happy with the purchases. I got a winter coat that will fit little Abe great next year. I spent $6.68 on the coat/ originally $29.68. (I almost bought the exact coat during a black Friday sale for $15) I picked up a pair of lounging around the house pants for me. I only have one decent pair so I'm happy to have a second. The pants were originally $19.08 but with the clearance price, the additional 50% off the clearance price that the store was doing today, and the 40% off in store coupon that I had I paid $2.57 for the pants. I think that's the best deal I've ever got on pants, even when shopping at a thrift store.
In total I spent $36.73 today and I saved $47.50. For me that is good! I'm quite proud of that shopping trip :)
Average daily spending for 2015: $16.63
