.99 Cent Stores


Who knew there is another culture of people who shop? Well there is and they shop at the .99 cent store! Today I parked at Petsmart to get my baby puppy some chewy bones. And there was so many people going in and out,the curiosity got the best of me.And I have to say if you are in the mood its kinda fun. I left spending $12.85 and had two big bags of fun stuff.
(One of the bags I had to pay 3 cents for because apparently its BOYB) Luckily my Petsmart bag had room so I was able to put some of my goodies in there. I bought Reynolds aluminum foil, Soilove (which is the BEST stain remover ever) 2-6 packs of orbit gum, a head of cabbage which looked so fresh and yummy, a strawberry car freshener, peach Secret deodorant which I realized will now give me "peach pits" and lots of other fun things.And everything is .99 cents! Random stuff for sure.I could have left it all there and not missed a thing but you get caught up in the excitement of it all! Which is why I had a 10 lb bag of russet potatoes in my cart.It was such a good deal but how can two people eat that many spuds? So I left them behind for my other bargain shopping friends.Will I go every week? probably not, but if I am in the area I think I'll stop by again. It's like a treasure hunt and who knows the goodies you'll find....

We have a couple of Dollar Stores here (I guess we're a little uppity here in Utah...thus the Dollar vs. 99 cents). I went in one once but couldn't stand the smell, so I haven't been back, although now I'm intrigued to try again. I must say something about Soilove. My friend, Sherrie, LOVES that stuff. They moved to Utah a few years before we did and whenever we would come to visit them, she would have me buy a boatload of Soilove and bring it to her. After a while I couldn't find it at any of the stores in CA. She has been heart broken!! Wait till I tell her you found it at the 99 Cent store. This is going to change her life...I promise! Glad you found a new place to shop, there's nothing like a new store to brighten up the day.

One of my favorite places to visit is the Dollar Tree. Greeting cards that are 2 for a buck... Random stuff for the house and candies. By the way, I bought Skyla and Radar matching Independence Day bandanas. TOO CUTE!

Goodness, I have been out of the blogging world for longer than I thought. I had to read back on your blog for half an hour to catch up. I love your new puppy. He seems adorable. He couldn't have been placed in a better home. Congratulations to the proud parents.
I have found some good bargains at the dollar store, but I always end up spending at least thirty bucks... "How can I pass this up, it is just a buck?" Anyway, I loved your "peach pits" comment. Have a happy day.
