As I sit here this morning, sipping on my coffee and bribing Owen with M&M’s to give me two minutes of peace, I thought I’d share with you a quick look in our life this week.
Monday: No school. Play date.
Tuesday: I grocery shopped.
Wednesday: I don’t even remember?! Oh wait, Owen and I had a playdate with Samantha and her kiddos.
Thursday: Ran errands, grabbed a few birthday gifts I needed to get, got mad at Old Navy, sitting at the playground a while so the kids can play.
Friday: sitting on my butt for another 15 minutes til I have to wake up Fin & Maddie and then hitting up the local Goodwills with some friends. Yay!
My Old Navy rant though:
They’re currently having an AMAZING sale.
Buy one, get one 1/2 off the entire store.
Buy 3 clearance items, get 1 free.
Well when we walked in on Thursday, the lady told us the buy one get one 50% off thing, but then said clearance was BOGO. Her mistake lead to my total being like $60, me going, “Uhh… wtf?!” and putting my clearance items back. No big deal, I’m still getting my $8 tanks for Buy one, get one 50% off, right?!
BUT what they don’t tell you about that buy one get one 50% off is that you’ll pay the original price in order to get the deal.
The two tanks I bought normally are buy 2 at $8 each instead of $10 each if you’re only buying one.
Well, I looked at my receipt and instead of paying $8 for one and $4 for the other, I paid $10 & $5.
Messed up, right?!
That’s nothing though! My friend, Jenn got her husband some shirts and ended up paying $19.99 instead of the $12 they were advertised as! Neither of us realized it until we sat for lunch a few stores later trying to making sense of our Old Navy totals. So when she should’ve paid $12 and then half off so, $6. She paid $20 and then $10!
So fair warning, if you go in thinking you’re going to save a ton, just keep in mind this story! Had we not already been halfway home, I’d have returned my tank tops! I only went in there for a gift card for my sister but couldn’t pass up the Buy one, get one 50% off sale!
I love Old Navy but I feel like that was extremely sneaky of them! It’s not like they don’t make a killing off of me anyway!
And I’m off to wake up kids now! Enjoy your weekend, friends!
