The Tale Of Two Pairs Of Jeans

About two weeks ago my college bff Sarah gchatted me about a Daily Deal that Target had running.  Jeans that are $20 in the store were $15, buy one get one free and had free shipping.

I was intrigued.

We both went back and forth for about an hour until we ultimately convinced each other to place the order.  When I got to the end of my order, the following popped up:

Okay.  So let's recap:  The jeans would have been $20 each.  They were $15 each.  I got one pair for free.  I should have paid $6.99 in shipping.  I did not.  I have a Target Visa so I got an additional 5% off the order. 

Let's recap ever further:  I paid $13.50 for two pairs of jeans.

(Now I will say that I typically do not order clothing online because I like to try things on but there wasn't much of a gamble with this because you can return online orders to the store.) 

Okay, so the story gets better.  I wasn't sure why I needed two pairs of the same pair of jeans, but figured if one was free, what difference did it make?  However - in the end I didn't order the right size so I ran over to Target yesterday to see about making the exchange.  When I got there they didn't have two of the same color/wash of jeans I had (there was only one available on this online deal) so I asked if I could still make the exchange with two different colors.

They said yes.

So I ended up with two different pairs of jeans for a total of $13.50.

I was so proud of myself I wore jeans to work today.

The End.

In other news, Bruce is loving his new job!  We're both hunkering down and getting ourselves on a schedule so he packed his lunch while I made breakfast this morning.

As gut wrenching as it is to spend $115 on groceries, it was so nice to have FOOD in the house this morning!  You can't cook if there isn't food in the fridge and on the shelves (it's just a matter of finding the time to get to the store!).  I made simple breakfast burritos this morning:
  • Scrambled Eggs
  • Mexican Blend Cheese, Shredded
  • Salsa
  • Flour Tortilla Wrap
This really is a five-minute meal - very do-able during the week!

I love that verse!

Alright, I'm off to bask in the continued glow of my bargain shopping.  It's the thrill of the hunt!


  1. I love breakfast burritos! I have them a couple times a week. The only thing I do different is add a slice of turkey bacon. Yum.

  2. one of my favorite verses as well! so good it's in the bible more than once! (also in matthew!) and breakfast burritos are sooo good...all day long!
