Da boyfriend and I have been trying to cut costs wherever we can. Its hard to put together a realistic budget when we don't quite yet know what our average electric and oil bills are going to be. Luckily, both of us don't mind a cooler house, so we've been keeping the thermostats low. My sisters swung by for a visit last week and while one sis didn't even want to take her coat off, I was perfectly comfortable. Lest you think I'm a terrible hostess, we were going right out for lunch and shopping, otherwise I would have happily cranked up the heat for her. She lives in Virginia and is used to toastier climates.
These flannel sheets are going to help out a lot. I was planning on buying a set before the winter temperatures really kick in and read a post from a fellow couponer that she found clearanced flannel sheets at Target. I had to return some unused curtains anyway, so I headed over on my lunch break. That store had a couple of sets clearanced for $14.99, but only in twin or king. I hit up another store on my way home and found this set for $17 and change. Aren't the bears cute? I realize Circo produces kids' items, but these were too cute and too comfortable to pass up. The $14.99 sets are manufactured by Target and have a red sign/postcard type of piece of paper on the front that tell you what size they are. Be sure to scan them at a price scanner first to make sure that they're the price you want.
Both stores had a lot of Christmas/holiday clearance items, but they're only at 50%. I poked around but didn't see anything that was worth buying. I'm set on wrapping paper, tissue paper and bows, so the only thing I was really looking for was decorations for the house. At 50%, the prices just weren't good enough for me. Have you all found anything interesting?
