I was riding home with my friend yesterday and we started talking about sale bargains. It's common amongst the two of us, and yes, very sad that we get SO excited about HUGE sales on pork or chicken. But hey, it's always fun to compare.
we started talking about her HUGE bargain she got on cereal. $20 off 10 boxes of cereal and the cereal was on sale. So, she buys 10 boxes and it came to $25, so she got the $20 off and then had a gift card for $6, so she got 10 boxes of cereal for free.
We continued talking and she came up with this BRILLIANT idea. See, she loves having people over for parties, but is trying to be $$ conscience, so she came up with the idea of having a breakfast party (but in the evening). She has enough cereal, and gets milk free, that people can come and it would be a smourgashboard of cereals and that's what we'd have to eat. She said her husband asked what she had been drinking and thought she was off the wall, but how FUN that would be! It just occured to me, what if everyone came in their jammies. Or make it a girls party (then it wouldn't be so akward with being in the same room with guys in their jammies, cause some don't wear ANY). I told her she should do it and who cares if the men in the household think she's off the wall. Besides, she's pregnant, so she can do ANYTHING she wants to :)
These pics bring back memories of digging in a newly opened box for the prize at the bottom without trying to spill too much out of the bag or ripping the box. Oh the thrills of digging through dried, surgary cereal just to get something that your mom paid $2 for. Oh for the old days :)
