I've been thinking how nice it has been to have some slow days of puttering around. I am not a big shopper these days, so I wasn't battling it out at the malls, but I am thrilled with two purchases I made this weekend.
I never used to buy in bulk -- simply because there's not much room in a NYC apartment to store things, but I have gotten into the habit of buying big packages of paper towels. I'd rather find a place to store them than to be constantly lugging them or running out. So the 10-pack was on sale -- reduced from $19.95 to $9.95. I love it. I love admiring the store receipt where the full price is noted and then at the bottom there's MINUS $10.00 in red. Cheap thrills, I know. What's appalling is that the store makes a profit even at half price.
My other bargain was Progresso soups, which is my typical lunch. I had a supply, but this weekend the price was reduced from $3.79 to $1.99 so I stocked up. Now my one shelf looks like a Progresso soup commercial where all you see are the soups.
On to other topics. Just talked to Stephanie and the crisis of the day is she realized she packed Macho's health certificate along with other papers which are all now on a moving van. She has to show the health certificate for the airlines. So we're hoping that the vet will reissue one tomorrow. Of course, it's always something. Stephanie and Danny now have one bed which they are giving away and two folding chairs which she borrowed. Flight is Tuesday. Macho is confused and doesn't know what the heck is happening in his little world. Just wait until he realizes he's going to the vet tomorrow.
