I love bargins..bargins..BARGINS!!

After my 8 am dentist visit for a cleaning..which reminds me - why do I always schedule them early in the workday - then have to go into work? Why don't I schedule them for the end of the day and then leave work early and go home afterwards?

Go figure...

On the way to work after the lovely dentist, I wanted to stop by Barns & Noble because Mr. B saw Dr. Oz on Oprah and they were talking about the book "Eat This, Not That"...and he was quite amazed at all the mis-information we carry around...we "think" were making smarter choices, but in reality, maybe not so much..

Anyway..I picked up that book, all ready to hit the check stands, when I see a big honkin' "$2.00" sale sign...

I go to look and find several that interested me and could have purchased a lot more if I had the cash (remember, credit/debit cards and or checks and I do not mix..bygones..) so I had to narrow my choices...here are some of the ones I chose:


A scrapbook of sorts for a grandchild by Debbie Mumm

A darling {autographed} copy of a dog's tale by Cindy Adams..the gossip columnist..

..and one that certainly got Braxton's attention...

Yep...a great, papering-how-to (as if we need a "how-to") that I know both he and Lulu will benefit from..

Then this GeOrGEoUs big book ..."Formal Country"...great photos, large pages..really really nice..
..and to think I got them, with my Barnes & Nobel member card for another 10% off - making the $1.80 each! Can you imagine?? I walked out of there with less money spent that I would have if I ate out that day...love BArGiNS!!

Lulu seems impressed....sort of....

Braxton, well, probably not so much...UNTIL I start the mini-massage and hot oil treatment....

So, until tomorrow, remember to:

wash
brush
flush
and.....

-me

Fun books...fun bargains! Love the last two pictures (of course)...they are so adorable. And I know their personalities, which makes them even cuter!

We don't have one of those around here we have to drive an hour to go to a good book store :( It just doesn't seem fair. It looks like you got some really good deals.

I have been banned from Barnes and Noble. Not by them, but by Mr. Smith. Apparent;y he thought I had gotten too many bargains and needed to let someone else get them for a change. I'm glad it was you!! lol
