Shop Till You Drop

Today Elizabeth and I shopped all day long. Our day began with breakfast at IHOP and then bargain hunting at various stores. Our main purpose for shopping was the fabric stores; I needed some fabric for a future quilt as well as more backing fabric for my fussy cut quilt. Sadly we did not find what I needed.
However, we did find some nice 75% off Christmas deals. This double mug set cost me $3.75 after the discount. I will be using the mugs for a gift basket;
The kids will eat the chocolate and I plan on putting assorted teas and homemade cookies with the mugs in a wicker basket.
I found an unexpected bargain at the grocery store today; cheese marked 50-cents per package. It normally sells for $3.59 per package. I bought 11 packages and will freeze it until we are ready to use it in cooking.
Elizabeth received a gift card for Barnes and Nobel Books from Aunt Eva, Uncle Barry and Cousin Richard. We searched all over the store looking for just the right book.
After much discussion we decided on a handmade leather journal with lock and key. Elizabeth was very excited about this purchase.
Our final stop was Little Caesars for a quick and easy dinner.
We are so tired I think we will sleep until next year! :)

Pamela and I sure enjoy those shopping and lunch days. We haven't done breakfast yet, but might take up some ladies (from my job) offer to join them for breakfast at I-hop! Alan's favorite place to eat!

Good find on that cheese, you lucky duck!

Couldn't ask for a better day then to spend it shopping, eating and bargain hunting.
Love the cups, and be sure to let me know if you liked Jo's idea for the cheese. I think I'll make some this week too.
