The last thing you bought, where did you buy it?

I didn't want to hijack the thread on 'what have you bought last'...but, where did you shop? Did you have a reason to shop where you shopped? ~Bliss
I shopped at the local Kwik Trip for the apple and pears and I'm not sure if I'll get a water softener from Lowes, Home Depot, or Farm and Fleet or ?
I shop at Kwik Trip for convenience, and good prices on fruit. ~Bliss

Even though I'm a "girl," I don't really care for shopping and really, really dislike the mall scene. I've always found shopping to be a bit of a chore, so I do it as efficiently as possible.

Yesterday I had to be in town for a meeting and I noticed an ad in Sunday's paper for Kohl's that advertised summer shoes. I needed some new white summer shoes and the ad showed some that appealed to me. I also had an old, old, old, store credit, so what the heck?

Yep, I ended up buying some nice Vera Wang shoes, using the store credit, and left the store with about $3. in change from the credit. I was a happy camper.

Yet another kitchen knife, a 300mm Hattori Sujihiki (used for slicing meat of all sorts) from Japanese Chefs Knife. The site is one of the best for Japanese kitchen knives, and Hattori is the Mercedes of genre. Here it is:

Katie, I'm with you. Not much of a shopper. A friend who is visiting from down south is a real girly-girl, so I called her to tell her I need to shop for gardening stuff to get the gardens started, and she was delighted to come along. So the last thing I shopped for was two flats of plants (tomato, herb, and a few annuals), four bags of wood mulch, and four of top soil. Today will be her day for shopping on our old town main street. After that the only shopping I'll do for months will be groceries and drug store purchases. Most personal shopping I do by phone or on-line because clothes to fit my body aren't available in a normal person's store.

The last thing that I shopped for was pajamas at Kohl's. They had a ton of stuff on sale for 50 to 65 percent off, and I had one of those little promotional cards for an extra 15% off . I usually shop at Kohl's for clothes because it seems like I always have a discount card. Kohl's is actually pretty smart sending out all those discount cards throughout the year. I get sucked in regularly .
