New Year New Bargains!

We started the new year off kind of slow but that was great! After we got going we headed to town, I wanted new Christmas boxes in the spirit of consolidating and reorganizing. I am not sure how much of that was accomplished but they are now all red and green which should make them easier to find in our disaster of a shed.

Shopping was great today no one was out. It was a nice change from the over crowded stores of last year (he he, last year like it was so long ago.) We ended up at Borders, I know they don't carry totes but we went to avoid going home and organize just look around. But how could I pass up such great bargains. I found these children's books for only $3.99, no I am not kidding $3.99.
I even left the price tag on one so you would know that I was not starting out the new year with a big fib. I love all these titles I was so excited to get such a deal.

I also needed a daily calendar since I did not get one for Christmas and they were 50% off so I got a Kirigami one. I love to have a daily calendar on my desk at work. In the past I have had Far Side cartoons, Origami, Tangrams, and last year learn Chinese. I laughed at all the Far Side Jokes, I made a little origami, always did my Tangram puzzle and I can not speak Chinese. I figure 3 out of 4 isn't that bad, but I steered clear of the learn French calendar. This is what I made today.

This will be a fun distraction thing to get my brain started every morning.

Hope you all had a great New Years Day it is always good to start the year off right.

I have a feeling there are some good bargains in all the stores, but the streets are terrible.
