Bargain Day Monday

Wish every day could be called Bargain Day!  I’m always looking for bargains, so they’re always on my mind, that’s for sure!

Monday started off as it will for weeks to come with a trip to Dunkin’ Donuts for my FREE iced coffee.  Free is good, right?!

Ok, You try smiling and drinking and taking a photo all at the same time!  At one point I made myself laugh and spilled coffee on myself!  Gotta get better at these self photos! 😉

Mondays lately almost always involve a trip to the produce market.  It’s one of my favorite places and I always get lots of healthy things for not much money.

Romaine lettuce, red bell pepper, yellow squash, broccoli, red delicious apples and pears.  Not in the photo- tangerines and celery.  I’m really getting into celery for snacks and adding to salads.  The crunch it adds seems to make the salad seem more filling.  More chewing involved, I guess!

I made a quick stop at Walmart and found two good things.  First, this knife.

It’s the kind of knife I see all the TV chefs using.  It cost $3.00!  I was pretty excited!

Also exciting was this…

Biscoff Spread! I’ve been reading about this on a lot of blogs and I thought I’d give it a try.  I know I said I was backing off of peanut butter, but this is supposedly a little different from regular peanut butter.  We’ll see.  This was not necessarily a bargain, but I consider it research! 😉

My other bargain-these tongs…

I’ve been looking for a pair and I couldn’t pass them up because the were only $1.00!  Found these at Rite-Aid.  I also got multi vitamins Buy One Get One Free!  Good deal!

Those are my bargains for Monday.  Not sure if Tuesday will turn out to be much of a bargain.  I’ve been awake since 2am and up since 4am.  I believe there will have to be a nap in my future this afternoon.  We’ll see how it goes.

Happy Sleepy Tuesday!
