My best deal this week was a Christmas gift. And since he’s already aware, I can post the deal. #1 wanted a new Army field jacket. He currently uses Grandpa’s 1950s one, with the airborne and colonel patches still attached. Not cool for a kid pre-enlisting this week. We went down to AM Surplus in Bellevue a few weeks ago, tried them on, and ordered him a new one. The owner told me the price would be about $75, but when it came in and we finally made it back down there, it was less than $50 — because it wasn’t a size XXXL, which is what the original price was based on. Well, I’ll take that deal!
Grocery-wise, I am finding lots of deals, but not getting to the stores to get them. Last week’s storm kinda threw a monkey wrench in it for me. When I did get out and saw the crowds, I realized I didn’t need to be out, don’t like crowds, and would be better off scraping up ice at home. At least I got some exercise.
What’s your deal this week?
