    Nice one! Mine, today is getting my first ipod and having my son fill it up from the playlist on his laptop. We have the same taste in music, so we had great fun going over the list together. Rap, hiphop, classic rock, Dylan, Marley, Beatles. Yeah!

    I love getting a bargain!

    I went to Macy's today to get some stuff that my niece had on her bridal registry. She is getting married on Saturday.

    On the registry I noticed she had a set of 300-ct king-sized sheets listed and no one had bought them yet. And they were on sale for $49.99. Okay I will check them out and add them to the other things I planned on getting her.

    Well, we could not find these sheets anywhere. Even the salesman went into the stockroom looking for us. So while he was looking, I noticed that Macy's had a set of 540-ct sheets also on sale for the same price. And they had them in the color she wanted. Hmmmm. Okay, we'll go for them instead. I mean, why not!

    So we are walking away from the sheets section and I said to hubby, "Wait! Let's get a set for our bed!" Well they didn't have a color I wanted, but then I noticed that 600-ct sheets were also on sale for $49.99!!! And they had the sagey green I wanted. (They didn't have her color preference or we would have upped hers to 600-ct.)

    After grabbing a few other items off the registry, we head to the counter and the guy tells me that my credit card is invalid! HA! Guess if one doesn't use it often enough, they close the account. So he told me I could open a new account and would get 15% off. Very cool!

    On top of that, I got an extra $25 off the purchase price. I really don't understand what that was all about, but he ended up taking $12.50 off of two items....one of them being my sheets!

    So when we got home, I looked at the receipt and noticed that the sheets are regularly priced at $200 (yeah right! I would never pay that much!) marked down to $49.99 minus the 15% discount for opening up the charge account minus the $12.50. Total paid = $29.99 plus tax!!!

    Nice catch! Have you ever had 600 ct. sheets? To die for. My simple pleasure is still this new toy of mine - the iPod Shuffle. I've already done an hour more of exercise in two days because of it and didn't want to stop, but I was running out of time to make it to lap swim.
    Count your blessings!

    MamaC that is a great bargain!!!!

    I got my daughter 400 count sheets right before Christmas that were $20.00 I wish I had gotten some for my bed.

    Gut, how did we ever live without the ipod? I love mine.

    My simple pleasure today is that we have sun and it's warm out. We haven't seen the sun for almost the entire month of December. It's been gloomy, rainy and cold.
    Today it's supposed to get near 70! Unbelievable.
