One last deal before May begins.......

As I have said - my "Keep Your Money May" challenge begins tomorrow, so that means no purchases - even if I find Cynthia Vincent Wedges for $5, they have to stay on the rack until June comes around. This is an exercise for me in self-discipline, reminding myself that I don't have to have every thing I want and to learn to think more before I spend. I also want my children to get a sense of what it's like to "make do" and learn to improvise. There are lots of ways to cook pinto beans and rice!

So for one last deal, on this last day of April - I think this just might be the most ridiculous deal I've ever gotten. Today I got this Tahari blouse - tag still on it for $98 and I paid.............
..............$0.99- yes you saw that correctly - $0.99!!!!!! Insane.
And now I must go fall into my bed as I have been in the kitchen and on my feet since 2pm - that's like a 9 hour shift -and these doggies are tired, as is the rest of myself. Good night!


  1. 99 cents? I want to shop where you're shopping!

    I just finished a shopping ban for the entire month of April. The first few days and the last few were the only time I was at all tempted to break the ban. In-between, it was easy to stick to it. You're right, it's a good exercise.

  2. What a fabulous deal! :)

    I think your *Keep Your Money May* pledge is such a great idea to implement. I may start something similar soon...thanks for the inspiration!

    Have a great day! :)

  3. oh wow ! You could walk around the store and probably collect 99 cents to pay for the shirt. What a great deal!

  4. Congrats on the ban and good luck. You are stronger-willed than I am.

  5. Yes, how did you get it for 99 cents?

    I'm going to have to go on some type of exercise to curb my shopping too... Your blog is going to be a reminder and inspiration. :-)

  6. Oh my gosh, 99 cents, do tell!
    And good luck to you and your willpower throughout May!!

  7. you always find great deals!
    I am so excited to follow your challenge over the next month. Best wishes to you and I'm sure every post will be an ispiration to me on how I can be strong, myself!!
