Woke up at 5:30 a.m. and could not go back to sleep. The weatherman had warned of showers so went to eat breakfast and run errands early to be one step ahead of them. Got home by 11:00 a.m. when the sky opened up.
One of my stops this morning was the Giant Dollar Store where due to inflation things now cost $1.09. I usually make this my last stop in the dollar store circuit and purchase what I could not find for a dime less (let’s say I am frugal) jajajajaja :D
We were invaded by flies two weeks ago and since then have read in various blogs where it has happened to other bloggers in different Texas cities. Trouble in Tx mentioned fly strips and for the life of me I do not know why I did not think of them when we were bombarded in Del Rio. Guess I can blame my CRS syndrome for this as well. So look what I bought…doubt I could have found them any cheaper elsewhere.
If your city has a Staples store I highly recommend you sign up for their Rewards card, it is free and you can save a lot of money. I personally buy a lot of batteries and at different times during the year you can get them for free. Well you pay for them…but they will reimburse 100% to your Rewards card … then you can use the money to buy whatever you please. I got an 8 GB SDHC card as well as a 4 GB memory stick for free.
Last but not least Harbor Freight…needed this Mesh Screen Face Shield for when I am wacking weeds…saved a little by using one of their 20 percent off coupons. Their Dust Masks are much better than those sold at the dollar stores while still costing the same and I used one of their purchase any item coupon and got a 6-piece Screwdriver Set for free.
We probably got about ½ an inch of rain or more and are expecting more showers tomorrow. Hope you were lucky enough to get some liquid gold in your respective areas as well.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
