    Stuff for my 4th of July bbq which included a small charcoal grill. My hubby decided he hates our propane grill now. So we are going to bbq for 6 people on 2 mini charcoal grills LOL Should be fun (NOT)!

    We had been talking about getting a propane grill, but Lowe's was offering samples of food they cooked on one a few weeks ago, and it just did not taste as good as food cooked on a charcoal grill. My husband doesn't mind the charcoal grill, it just takes longer to wait for the coals to be ready.

    Bought two more books for my class - Balloons Over Broadway (about the Macy's parade), and The One and Only Ivan (2013 Newberry winner).

    I have a propane grill. The food tastes exactly the same as when I cook it inside on my gas stove. Why bother when I'm home anyway? :confused:

    I did some couponing today. I got my $143.75 in retail purchases for $46.83. Sales go in cycles. Right now I am cleaning up on health & beauty products--razors, razor blades, shave gel, shampoo, soap, lotion, body wash, lipstick, and face moisturizer.

    I did some power shopping this weekend. I bought a beautiful Michael Kors purse and matching wallet on sale. For clothes, I got three pairs of pants, one t-shirt, three blazers, a cardigan, a dress, two sweatshirt cardigans with matching leggings, and three pairs of sunglasses. All the clothes and sunglasses were at least 50% off, and most were 80% off.

    I was planning to purchase some books on amazon and some dresses from Land's end, but the officer I met while going 55mph in a 35mph zone changed my mind. My money will not be going to the Commonwealth of PA.:(

    I just got to spend $500 on an emergency trip to the vet with my dog on Friday.

    Then I just got a gel manicure yesterday (I've only had regular manicures before). I really like the color and polish, but she cut my finger pretty deep during it! My fingers bleed pretty easily so I didn't worry that much at first. But it still hurts today.

    FarFromHome, I'm sorry about your dog & your finger! I hope our dog gets better soon. I may try a gel manicure the day before I go back to work.

    Last week I bought a new dress for a wedding I have this weekend. An accessories store in the mall is closing so I picked up earrings and necklaces all 75% off. Yesterday I stocked up on math manipulatives at a local thrift store.

    I went for a test drive of a new Ford F-150 today, but I didn't buy anything. I loved the new model. I have a 2008, which got washed while I was trying out the new one. Fun, but not in my budget.

    Ima, one of my aunts was getting her Lexus coupe serviced at the dealership when the latest model of the Lexus coupe caught her eye & she actually got it!

    On a different note, I want to get an XBox 360 after a while. Why the hell not! I've worked hard with my education for yrs.

    Nothing exciting, but we purchased some clothes from the sales this weekend. More exciting, I bought HP and the SS with the new cover art on Sunday. I REALLY want the whole set (my old set is falling apart from so much reading) but I can't afford $100 for a set of HP books right now. I'm think birthday/Christmas gift lists later this year.

    I bought a 2013 BMW 325i!

    Got a good deal $25,000, $480 a month which sounds like a lot but my truck (2010 dodge ram) was $450. I was having to fill up 3 times a week at $80 a pop! Figured I was spending about $1300 a month (same as my rent)!! So I traded her in for my new car!

    I left work with a full tank and returned with a full tank today!!!!!

    I had to buy a new iPad charger because someone stole mine at work! :mad:

    Last night I bought a couple of new pairs of pants for fall. Normally I'd be happy to buy new clothes, but not when I still have the new (smaller) pants I bought last year hanging in my closet with the tags still on them. I hate steriods. :mad:

    I am so sorry Ima! That really stinks.

    I just noticed the date of the first post in this thread was October 2008! It's hard to believe this thread has been going for almost five years.

    If I tried to list all the stuff we have purchased this past week (wedding expenses) you'd probably choke on whatever you are drinking. Suffice it to say we have been to the stores and the malls multiple times.
