Fake Wii

I found this "fake Wii" at the local grocery store, Wangsgards. It was $29.99!!! It doesn't have all the bells and whistles, but is fun. It includes 5 sport games: golf, baseball, bowling, tennis, and boxing. It works great. You cannot buy new games for it. It comes with two controllers. We have really enjoyed it for the price!

Brad was boxing, in case you were wondering.

Do you have a Honk's Dollar store near you? (By the way, isn't that the worst name for a store?) Next Tuesday they are having a $.88 day. Everything in the store is only $.88! The store in Ogden had tables at the front of the store with miscellaneous items for 2/$1.00. I bought wood flower and butterfly frames for Aubryn to paint from the table and the bag was only $.44! And it had the paint too. I thought that would be a great craft for Activity Days or other young girls. I also bought other things I use a lot. Like, 4/pack GE light bulbs, aluminum foil, and plastic table clothes. It only lasts through the January Tuesdays!

Magic Question

I recently ordered hardware for my kitchen cabinets. We have lived in our home for a year and a half. I am really excited to have hardware! When I found what I wanted, I waited. I knew it would add up. But last week I went in and ordered them! After I was quoted the price of each nob and drawer pull I asked the hardware store employee, "Is that the best you can do on the price?" Wall-AH! He said, "I can take a dollar off each." So, I ordered 13 drawer pulls and 28 nobs. (adding in my head) I saved $41 just by asking that question.
