Christmas shopping!

We've been needing a vaporizer or humidifier.  I saw there was a $5 off coupon if you watched a Rite Aid Video Value, so I did that and headed off to Rite Aid.  For $16.70 I got a Vick's vaporizer and two packages of light bulbs.  I also got $3.98 back in UP+ Rewards for next time I shop at Rite Aid.  Considering the original price of the vaporizer was $16.49 I think that was a good bargain!

Since we were that far, we decided to go on into Morgantown (okay, so it's 25 more miles from that town, but we decided to go anyway.)

Next stop:  Barnes and Noble.  I was in luck.  They had a number of items marked down to $2   I have a Barnes and Noble membership card and got each item for $1.80

What I bought

Dover Pictura Letters and Alphabets CD-ROM and book (original price $39.95)
4 Ravensburger puzzles (original price $16.95 each)
iSpy puzzle (original price $9.95)
3 mini Coke puzzles (original price $9.95 each)
box of Christmas cards of a lady with two Wii remotes and a box in front of her that says Wii knitting (original price $14.50)
box of Hanukkah cards (original price $12.99)
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer game (original price $19.99)
Mr. Owl Tootsie pop blank book (original price $9.95)

Original price for all this would have been: $204.98.  My price after tax, disounts, and rebate? $23.70  All of the puzzles are Christmas themes but those work fine for Christmas gifts!  :)  I think I have a nice start on Christmas for 2011!  :) 

Then I stopped at Kroger, got the overcharge straightened out, and they even refunded the tax I had to spend on their error!  :)

When I arrived home, there was a package on the porch.  It was a win of children's books.
Inside the package:

The Beginner's Guide to Living
Bridget's Beret
Birdy's Smile Book (Christy Ottaviano Books)
Sleepy, Oh So Sleepy
Last Song
