bought a phone, a comforter for my bed, among other things. i got it at walmart. i look at things on the site on line. then check if they are in the store. also picked up a iced tea pitcher made from recycled glass. that i ordered on line for pu in store. saves the shipping price.

The #7 grating cone does a poor job. Got an Italian made table top grater from Fantes yesterday. The machine from Fantes works like a champ.

I bought 3 jacquard tablecloths at a local winery. They were 75% off, and on top of that, they gave me the staff discount because we had catered an event there.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

2 prescriptions, 2 bags of gummy bears and a box of Nature Valley peanut sweet and salty granola bars (they are REALLY good, highly recommended). Also a bottle of bright pink toe nail polish and a bottle of water! I got it all at Walgreens.

I just bought this at the Mens Warehouse. I needed something to put my suit in and my wifes dress when we travel to FL for my brothers wedding next month. This case is perfect. It is sized so it can be taken on the place as carry on.

I went to a consignment store earlier this afternoon and bought 1 pair of jeans, 1 pair of slacks, and three tops. Including tax my purchase totaled a whopping $30 . I love a bargain. My husband thinks it is gross to buy clothing from a consignment store, but it doesn't bother me one little bit!

Take care, be good, ~Bliss
The last thing I've purchased was a 2 person hiker/biker camping tent.

I bought a silver and pearl necklace, earrings and bracelet set from a street vendor today...for only 450 pesos (about $32 USD). The poor people here are really suffering from NO tourists because of the flu. And we still have NO flu in Puerto Vallarta or Bucerias. COME AND VISIT US. It is absolutely safe.
Saludos, Karen
