Mr. Frugal

Brad was telling me that he really needed some new shirts for work. In the last week he's come home with two ripped shirts. (What do they do out there on the desert?) I didn't really want to have to buy him any new clothes. Both shirts were repairable, so no big deal.

Well, the other day I was ironing and noticed all of his shirts were starting to look pretty worn out and that indeed he was going to need some new clothes. (I hate it when he's right!) I figured I'd hit the mall and see what was on clearance. Then over the next couple of months we could buy a shirt or two at a time to build him a stock pile. Being the frugal man that he is he suggested we stop and take a quick look at D.I. It turned out to be a FABULOUS idea. Not only did we score ten (yes, TEN) good shirts for him (all kinds of good brand names without the brand name prices!) but I found the kind of stuffed monkey I'd been wanting to get Camille. Ten shirts, one stuffed monkey, and a toy car later we still have money in the bank. :) Brad insisted Mil needed the car as well as the monkey and when you're talking a dollar each, you can't go wrong. (Brad would probably be embarrassed that I just told everyone that his shirts are from D.I. but really they are nice. And at $5.00 a shirt how can I not brag!)

Oh, Brad's keen shopping eye doesn't stop there. We went to Idaho Falls and were helping Ryan pick out some new shoes. Can I tell you that watching Camille in a shoe store is like watching a kid in a candy shop. She was in HEAVEN! (She is such a girl!) Brad found these cute little boots, just her size, that were on clearance. Regular price $25.00, on clearance for $10.00, plus there was an additional $5.00 off so all we paid was $5.00. Here's a video of Millie enjoying her monkey.

Who cares if his shirts are from DI. I love that place. Besides I haven't even bought Steve any new shirts in a loooooong time. The last thing I got him was a sweater and it was on clearance for practically nothing.

I wish we had a D.I. here. Count your blessings

D.I. rocks. And that's an awesome monkey, and a darling Mil!
