Baker's Report: New Toys

I realized that I never showed y'all my new toys.  Hubby stashed $100 of casino winnings from way back when we were on staycation in May, just for the trip to this store.  Then, he found out when they were having their 25% off ALL NordicWare Bakeware, and we hit the road.

Everything here was zero oop.  In couponing terms, that means zero out of our pocket.  Or better put, free.

Although, Hubby saw my face and knew that even at zero oop, I was getting a rash.  So he went to the counter and paid for what I already picked out, with his winnings.  Then came back to where I was and took the rest from me and got that free too.

He told the lady, "I have to hurry up and get it paid for before my wife talks herself out of it, saying that she doesn't need it.  Then we get home tonight and she'll say, I wish I would have gotten that."

The lady laughed and said, "We're all like that."

  1. Yes, you are all like that!
    Although I confess, I'm even worse. I hate buying stuff for myself. My wife has to force me to get something I want.

    1. Will it go on clearance?

      Delete
    2. You mean on sale? The sales should start real soon, they usually start at the peak of summer, but in my country things on sale are never more than 10 or 20% cheaper. And sometimes they even raise the price before the sales :(

      Delete
    3. Like a sale but better. Things will go from 70% to 90% off retail price.

      Though we do have one store in my town that will raise food prices, and then do a bogo sale. I don't know who they are fooling with that trick.

    4. oh, you're so lucky! The worst thing is that most clothes and things are generally more expensive here than in the West even though we're a poor country. You can probably buy three or four pairs of sneakers there for the price of one pair here.
      I've never heard of 90% sales! What bliss is that? :)

    5. It can be fun and, most places that I shop at, will let me use a coupon on a clearanced item, often making them free. But ... it is a pick-through. Sometimes it's just junk in the bins, other times good stuff.

      Wow, three or four pairs for the price you pay for one. That is crazy stuff. I don't understand, sometimes these high high prices. Makes me nuts.

  5. Just think of all the yummy things you'll make with that new bakeware! A good investment!
