Friday, July 1st I ventured out to Ollie's to take advantage of their once-a-year Customer Appreciation Event where everything in the store is 15% Off.
I have had my eye on a Polar Hat with UV reflective technology that is supposed to block 99% of harmful UV rays. With all the yard work I have in my future and the scorching three-digit temperatures I can use all the help I can get. Sells for $7.99 with my discount $6.79.
I picked up the last two Dr. Scholl's orthotics inserts with Shock Guard and extra arch support which are always cheaper here than at HEB or Walmart. They regularly sell for $5.99 today I bought them for $5.09 each.
Dawn dishwashing liquid that sells for $1.25 at Dollar Tree was only .76 cents here. The only disappointment was these Snyder of Berlin chips...they did not taste like garlic or parmesan...talk about "shrinkflation" when I opened them they had more air than chips. Glad I only purchased one.
These Perrier energy drinks caught my eye as I had no idea they made them.
I went with the Caffeine and Yerba Mate Pomegranate flavor as it brought back memories of drinking mate tea in Buenos Aires...yes, even children drank it. Whenever I have to drive out of town or need the energy to do yard work I will drink real coffee though I don't like coffee or rather coffee does not like me...it makes me jittery and nervous.
I bought the six-pack discounted from $1.99 to $1.69 or .28 cents each...you are never going to find an energy drink for that price.
Headed to Walmart to check out their camping gear since they are usually on sale at this time. I am interested in a good quality ice chest in case we lose power this summer or for camping this fall. I would love one of these but unfortunately, I can't even lift it and it was empty. 😕
|72 Quarts for $129.00|
While I could lift this Igloo cooler it was still heavy.
|72 Quarts for $99.00|
This item caught my attention as white straight-leg canopies are more expensive than slant-leg colored ones. This was a great price but it was also heavy and I would require help setting it up so decided to pass. 😢
What I did not plan to purchase were tennis shoes that were selling for $7.00, $9.00, and $12.00 I could not pass on these as it was a good price, and with all the rocks and cacti on the property, I go through them fast.
If you are looking for a small chest freezer they are finally available.
I may go back and purchase this folding table...we will see...
Added more cans to my preps...
This was the going price both at Walmart and HEB for a gallon of unleaded and diesel.
Both Friday, and Saturday we reached 104 degrees. Yesterday (Saturday) we had a repeat event of last week with winds, thunder, and lightning. It rained in the northwest and eastern parts of Val Verde County but the southern tip did not receive a single drop though the cooler temperatures were welcomed.
Good night. May you all have Terlingua Dreams.
