Funday Sunday and online shopping

I did some shopping at a familiar online store yesterday. I need pants (my new principal is a stickler for professional dress), so I bought a brand I know will fit. Then I went to the checkout and found out I was just shy of the amount for free shipping, so I bought socks. Then I found out that my 15% discount took me below the threshold for free shipping, and shipping was going to be $12. I said to myself, "Self, if you're going to spend an additional $12, get something for it." So I went to the kitchen department and found the soup bowls that we need. Four soup bowls added the exact amount I needed. Now I had to pay for the soup bowls, but the shipping was free.
Does this make sense? I hope so.

And I found this... perfect for the highchair quarterback. Fortunately (or not), my "children" are too old to use it. But they still cheer for the green and the gold as we have our own at-home tailgate style parties.
Digg! Stumble It! add to kirtsy

I guess making sense would depend on how much more the bowls were than the shipping. As for the highchair gear, my kids would be thinking it was a grandchild hint even though they know I don't do that.
(Sorry, no cheeseheads here unless it's the lesser of two evils. I personally don't do football.)

Now that's a shopper ... I wish I could shop like that . I don't have the guts.

Absolutely makes sense to me! In fact, I think your post is considered "motivational", so I should go online now and shop.
Thank you!

I have done this before too. And like you, I find something else "needed" to make up for it. I consider it to be a great shopping deal!

Makes absolute sense to me--you can't beat that kind of logic :)
