$19.50 and a Giveaway!

My in-laws were in town for the weekend so we got to have fun family time and hunt down some deals together. We spent the morning at a nearby town-wide sale, which was great because there were so many sales all together! Here's my loot:

$2.00 - big box of yarn & a paper sorter

$1.00 - 2 gallon cooler

$2.00 - Disney Tales of Magic & Wonder books for Baby B. They will be perfect for once he gets a little older! I'm thinking about wrapping them up for Christmas or his birthday.

$0.25 - soap dispenser for the newly made-over bathroom and a bunch of seeds (they were free)

$3.00 - brand new razor for the mister (no cord, but he found one on ebay)

$0.25 - 4 yards of fabric.

$2.00 - large basket (and some dinosaur clothes for Baby B thrown in with the basket)

$2.00 - electric weed eater

$6.75 - Several Christmas/birthday presents for my sisters! I don't want to spoil the surprise, so you'll have to find out what they are later. ;)

Now for the fun part! I'm a bags & purses kind of girl. Always have been, probably always will be. It's really hard for me to pass up a cute bag, especially when it's a great price! So when I saw this little guy for $0.25 I thought I'd share the bag love and pass it on to one of you!

It's a great little red bag with a draw string top (I think it's about 15" wide). It has 2 pockets outside and 3 inside.

And it's a backpack!

I think I like it so much because it looks so summery. Perfect for a trip to the pool or a walk in the park.

 So what do you say? Want to win it? To enter just leave a comment here telling me what YOU are crazy about (another bag lover? Are shoes your thing? Or something totally different like books or video games?). You can earn extra entries by sharing the giveaway on facebook or twitter (just leave a separate comment telling me you did). The contest will close Friday, September 30, 2011 at 10:00pm and a winner will be chosen in a random drawing. Good luck!


  1. I wouldn't say that I'm in the target demographic for this blog, but my wife would love this bag. I'm crazy about my wife.

  2. I enjoy bags but I would have to say that I am a scarf person. The four hangers worth of scarves in my closet attest to that ;)

  3. This is an entry for Auntie J. She loves ice cream and little back massagers. And bags. Like her big sister. :)

  4. I love gadgets, bags, and markers.

  5. I don't think I have a "bag problem," but my husband suggests I do. I have four large Rubbermaid totes with bags. Two large bags filled with small bags or pouches, and 2 to 3 stacks on a shelf. However, gadgets catch my eye.
