MO and I went to town yesterday to run a bunch of errands and had a very productive day!
First we went to Lowes and got blinds for our bathroom (for the last year we have been living with a tension rod with a towel hanging over it...) as well as some lightbulbs for the basement. We had $75 in gift cards from last Christmas for Lowes so that covered all but about $30 of the bill. MO put the blinds up as soon as we got home and they look great!!
Next we hit the thrift store as we are both in need of some new pants. I found a pair of "like new" Maurice's Jeans for $10! This retail for $60+ so I was excited! MO didn't find any pants, but he did find some very nice shoes for work for $10 which was also a great deal!
Then we went to Scheel's as my work offers $200 per year for wellness that you can purchase wellness items and submit for reimbursement. We already have a treadmill and an elliptical and didn't really need anything but didn't want to waste the free $200, so w got a punching bag set that includes a set of gloves, a pullup bar, ab wheel, perfect pushup handle, 3 set of kettlebells, which left $14 remaining, so I grabbed a $14.99 resistance band. That's a lot of Free loot!!!! While we were there we also got one of my Bros BD and Christmas presents.
Then we stopped at Barnes and Noble there is a THM cookbook I wanted and I had $15 in gift cards for there so I used that and paid the $15 balance OOP.
Finally went and got BD and Christmas gifts for my niece and nephew so they are done for Christmas. I think I have about 30% of my gifts done.
Ended with my nieces BD party and some family time, very good and relatively cheap day between the gift cards and wellness reimbursement!
Today we are relaxing with football and getting some more laundry/cleaning done before Thanksgiving! Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!
