Endorphin rush

Monday, August 31, 2009

I know compulsive shopping is bad.  And really I can’t classify what I do as true compulsive shopping as I am not dealing with an addiction here (it is controllable; I am not obsessed; I am not hiding anything from anyone; I can pay my bills).

But…oh do I get that rush when I find a deal.  Except I’ll find a deal on something I didn’t know I wanted.  That’s not a good thing – I’m saving myself broke!

Anyway, I just had to share this because it was such a tasty bargain.

We went to Winners on Saturday.  I immediately spotted this in the clearance area (hard to miss – the box is huge and there were 3 of them).

I knew about this product; I think I may have read a blog review. But I knew what it was.  And, if you click on the link, the normal price is $190.

See that nice red price tag?

$9

(NO WAY, I said to myself)

$9!!

Come to me, baby!

So yeah, I’ve got some euphoria going on, but it hasn’t given way to shame.  No chance of shame here.

Now to set it up, and let the kids come in the usually off-limits kitchen (because I’m evil like that) to be little helpers.  Ooh and you can turn it into a puppet theatre!  Except then I’d have to spend more money.  Must start the bargain search on that item.

    I love that! My toddler is too young to help in the kitchen, but I might look into getting one of those once he’s old enough,,,

    I can’t believe they sell THAT for $190…. good lord stick a chair in the kitchen and let them do the dishes.

  5. Maria Says:

    Yes, that is an amazing deal. You totally should have snagged them all and sold them for megaprofits. 🙂

    That’s one hell of a bargain and actually quite useful, even if you weren’t intending to buy it in the first place.

  7. Karen MEG Says:

    Now THAT is a real bargain, especially if you were familiar with the product. Great score, Emma!

  8. Mancais Says:

    Nice bargain

    What a deal. Now wait, what it is?

    Looks pretty cool and for nine bucks if they never use it you ain’t out too much. I bet some of our grand kids would like that.
