Retail value of 5 shirts and 1 pair of sweatpants at JCPenney
Price we paid because I kept telling Scary Baby the only rack she was allowed to choose from was the one that said “Final Clearance $3.97”
Note on my bed with tags and receipts after PhilBillPaul and I got home from the FREE movie…
Disclaimer: Scanned note has been altered to use her blog code name. 😉 She does not sign her notes “Scary Baby” or “Scary” for short. I just loved that she signed it twice otherwise we wouldn’t have known who it was from.
I didn’t check her math until I was writing this, so for you math lovers out there who already know what I’m about to say…because when you see numbers, your mind is like a calculator and you added it up as you read it and know that…she’s off by $45 bucks. Which should be added to our total and brings our grand total savings to $155.19 if we had paid full retail!
Teaching your kids how to find the sale racks, bargain shop and save money is worth the time investment. In today’s instant gratification world, it’s good to show them how to watch and wait for something to go on sale. And it doubles as a great real life, fun math review!
Shining Moment #2
Scary Baby is now officially in the home stretch of her first decade here on earth.
Here she is wearing one of her bargain shirts in honor of her birthday and Earth Day.
I can hardly believe that it was 10 years ago today that I brought that giant last baby home.
Happy Birthday monkey!
You have always shined and made our family brighter.
We all love you as big as the whole world.
