QFC Shopping Trip 7/27

Miss MoneyPenny is thrilled!! to be writing to you today after going ass over teakettle at TJ MAXX yesterday, thoroughly embarrassing myself and scaring the bejesus out of Miss Maggie May.  I noticed that they had a display of office furniture and I spied a chair that I thought would work in my home office, so I sat in it.  Since it had rollers, it flew off of the display backwards with me landing on my back with my feet sticking straight up in the air, taking most of the display with me. 

MMM thought that somebody had dropped something and turned around just in time to see my feet sticking up.  We quickly got the display put back together after determining that I was only shook up, not actually hurt, but totally embarrassed.  When I woke up this morning I felt like I had been run over by a very big truck, who then put it in reverse and backed over me.

But I did run up to QFC and take advantage of a few deals, including a Shasta Daisy for $5.99, which is not the greatest of deals but I NEEDED it for my flowerbed.  This is the end of the month and I am still living on July money, so it is getting tight.  I spent $37.92 after sales and coupons, including the daisy, for a savings of 30%.

I bought the cherries, lettuce, and Tillamook Cheese that were on sale and noticed that they still have the blueberries for $4.99 for a two pound container, so I got that too.  It pays to take a quick look around because there are always things on sale that are not in the flyer or online.  I also picked up some Romas for $1.49 a pound.

You might be wondering why I bought lettuce when I've had it in my garden.  I ate it all and the new stuff is not ready yet, but the arugula is just about ready to pick.  I did take the two salsa peppers out of their fancy pots and put them in the garden because they were actually sitting in water.  They are going to have to make it or die, which is what usually happens.  The dying part, I mean.

  1. Well I'm certainly glad you weren't hurt at T.J. Maxx. I take it you didn't buy the chair? Your cruise fund is gettin' up there. Happy Sunday, Shery. ♥

    Now that you're OK, I can make the comment that your explanation sounded like a scene from an "I Love Lucy" show!! Isn't it crazy when we hurt ourselves we jump up and worry about who is watching not even noticing how much we hurt ourselves? Years ago I was weedeating next to the driveway by the garden on Birch street totally wrapped up in the noise.... whrrrrr, whrrrrr, whrrrrr Then THUNK! I walked backwards off the bank! I jumped up and looked around to make sure no one was looking and saw a neighbor standing on his porch laughing...
