bargains bargains bargains

These last few days I have really got some good deal! Let me see if I can list them

Today I was at walmart walking around the kitchen stuff and the stock lady told me she was marking these 25 dollar cake plates down to 5 bucks! I didn't have a nice pretty glass cake plate, so I gobbled it up. :o) Monday me and Mom went to Dirt cheap and I bought some cover girl makeup - 2 for a dollar! So I bought two different kinds of ' advanced radiance ' foundation, some mascara, and eye liner. Today we went back in there because I really liked my foundation. Today it was 3 for a dollar! woo hoo! I also bought two different swimsuits 5 bucks a piece. Friday I went to see what was in the scrapbook section at walmart. I ended up finding a really cute clear stamp set on sale for 3 bucks, and some silver ink for them for a couple of dollars. I also bought a set of martha stewart ribbon for 3 dollars. It was a box of 6 different colors. I found a new cover for my ipod at the dollar tree! They also had the exact same pink one that I had on my ipod. I think I paid around 10 dollars for it a year or so ago at walmart.
I have also found a cheaper way to have crock pot ' roast '. I had some of that chuck steak that walmart almost always has marked down for like 3 or 4 dollars for a couple of big pieces. I decided to throw it in the crock pot with a little seasoning and let it cook on low all day like a roast. It was pretty good! It wasn't quite as tender as a roast but almost. But that is just because it is leaner. Very little fat. Anyway, so I'll be doing that more often now. Next time I will throw potatoes and carrots in on it too.
I picked my first bell peppers from my garden today. :o) They are so cute. haha I don't want to eat them. My mystery plant is growing so fast. I'm thinking its either squash or cucumber by the way the leaves look. I doubt it gets to grow enough to produce anything before it cools off, but maybe it will.
That's pretty much all my excitement for my days off.
