I *heart* Barnes & Noble

4th wednesday of the month...


Yeah... I only get a check once a month at the end of the month. This month was a really great check cause I would be getting a full check (not living out of my overdraft this month) and I got my yearly raise. This year it was $70.00 per month. Now for me, living on a very small social security check that's a lot of money coming in.

I Needed to go out to Wal-Mart to get my monthly drugs (that cost me an arm and a leg) but I also wanted to go out to Trader Joes to get some stuff for a care package for a friend, take mom out to lunch cause it has been a LONG time since we've been able to just go out and do that, and then go to Barnes & Noble.

This month I needed to pick up a birthday present for kinsey. She'll be 5 next month. I like getting the kids books, cause they LOVE them. I also wanted to get something for sis when she has tubes put in her ears, which at this point is going to happen.

I found the clearance tables. Every book there with a red sticker was only $2.00

I thought I'd look at them to see if there was anything interesting. I ended up finding a book that has been on my reading list for a while, a book that looked interesting that maybe dad would like to read, and I know i would like to try it out. A book on Irish Folk Tales by Yeats that i've been interested in for quite some time, and 2 gifts. Mom found a christmas book for the kids and a book on the art in The D'orsay Museum in Paris.

$138.00 regular retail price... $14.00 plus tax is what I paid.

I'm so happy about my purchases. I LOVE being able to buy book at such a bargain.


  1. Very cool! Some sweet deals eh?
    BTW- Sis goes to the specialist on Tuesday so we'll see what he says. =)

  2. I dont read...not that I dont want to, but when i do the house falls apart. I loved the twlight books...what would you reccomend for me to read? I would say in the last ten years I have only read the twlight sagas, weight loss/fitness books and how to declutter (yeah, i didnt...)
    what would you suggest?
