Bargain Shopper strikes again!

After dropping the kids off at school this morning, (after a marathon 50 mins in the car! traffic SUCKS!) I had a coffee with a couple of other Mums, then head for home to do paperwork. Yuck. I was passing T@r.get and it was calling me to drop in, and check out her beautiful racks.

I walked out about an hour later ~
$10.06 for a pair of boardies for Mr T
$4.87 for a silver baby photo frame
$7.86 for a pretty pink polo tee for me
$3.86 for a pair of thongs (otherwise known as flip-flops or jandals!) for Mr T
$6.06 for a pair of thongs for Miss M
$20 for a pair of jeans for Mr T
$7 for a "boulder holder" for Moi
$5.56 for a nightie for Miss M
$5.56 for a satin night shirt for sis-in-law
$11 for pair of jeans for Mini
And the clincher in my spending spree was...
2 pairs of jeans for me @ the enormous price of $3.64 each!!!

$3.64 for a pair of jeans... please tell me T@r.get lost money on that sale, and that some poor folks in China haven't worked for free?

The day finished with my first official match as Coach of the basketball team. The girls have all played before ~ thank heavens!!! We lost, but we scored 5 points!!! Trust me, this is a huge deal! Miss M's team usually struggles to score at all!!! WE SCORED!!! I must say though - if a coach needs to ask how many players need to be on court... SURELY, that's not a good sign?!!!

PS Ford... keep those pointers coming my way!!! We practiced shooting hoops, one on one defense/shooting, and some ball passing, at last practice... it's quite apparent we need to work on shooting hoops - and we'll definitely be taking your advice and practicing leading TOWARD the ball!!!

EDIT: Sorry my Aussie talk has some of you a little confused!!! Boardies are mens swim shorts (surf style? does that make sense?) And yes, we call flip-flops "thongs"... open footwear that has a "bit" that goes between your toes... not between the cheeks!!! We call the underwear a Gstring here... one can only imagine why its called that?!!! Also, Julie - we've had T@r.get for at least 34 years, one of my earliest memories of going to my Grandma's house, when we passed T@r.get, we were nearly there!

Wow, you have Target in Australia?! We don't have any in Canada! I do love to shop there when I go to the USA. Amazing deal on the jeans!

BTW, what is a pair of boardies?

I had to laugh when you had to explain what "thongs" were. I thought to myself.. OMG she is talking about buying thongs for "Mr. T".. ewww.. LOL.. I also need an explaination of what boardies are.

Congrats on the 5 points scored at the game!

I wish some of your bargain babe talents would rub off on me. I seem to wheel into a store lot and all the prices go up!

Love me some Tar-Jay all the same.

Debz said...

Your a kick ass shopper if I ever knew one!!!!

Briana's Mom said...

Wow - you got some great buys!

I LOVE to go to Target!

cougchick said...

Good job on the great buys!

If you have netflix.com or something similar in Australia or even at your local video store you can check out training videos for b-ball that can give you some good coaching pointers.
