Instead of boring you with another financial Friday post, I thought I would share a fun post about money.  The best part of saving?  Having the $$$ for a shopping spree!! 

Most of the items I purchased yesterday were with a Target gift card my in-laws got me for my birthday, but I did pick up a few things at Old Navy as well as Ross {Dress for Less}

The dollar bin “pink circle” items were half price so I bought the black organizer (hopefully keeping the island from getting junky every week, some gift bags, note cards, a book for the Princess, and Avengers erasers for the Little Man.  I also snagged a frame at Ross for $5 – Jay and I are going to put the free 8 X 10 we got for having our picture made for the church directory in it and give it to his parents. 

Now to the fun stuff – the random things I purchased for myself!!  The bag was the only thing not on sale but if you can’t spend $15 of birthday money on a non-sale item, when can you?  The hat was on sale for $4.50, the umbrella is much needed and Calvin Klein for only $10, $6.99 Nine West sunglasses and a $9 sports bra from Old Navy.

I also bought a tiny little birthday gift for Jay and one for my sister.  Both of which will remain a secret for at least another month.  (They read my blog on occasion.)

What was the last fun item you purchase?  For yourself?  For someone else?
