Another Sale, another Thanksgiving

Most every day when my husband or I bring in the mail, we say to the other, "Penney's is having a sale!!!!"

Each day's mail brings a flyer from J.C. Penny's.
That store is always having a sale. Is there a day when there is no sale on at Penney's?
That J.C.


This wonderful item was originally $34.99 -- Now it's only $19.99! Things are always ONLY. In my opinion, it's not only $19.99, it's $19.99 plus tax. There's no "only" in a price.

One of their recent mailings had this great Marshmallow Blaster which uses air pressure to blast marshmallows up to 40'! Think of it! Forty feet! BUT, the marshmallows are not included. Bummer.

Is there someone you know and hate love who has small kids? Get'em this blaster. It'd be wonderful to have marshmallows all over the house, wouldn't it? They'd draw ants and stuff. Good times.

I don't mean to pick on Penney's. I think I get a bunch of flyers from them because I shop there a lot. I'm pretty cheap.

Now instead of political ads on TV, we have toy ads for Christmas. I think I like the toys better, but I'm not positive. Toy ads are pretty obnoxious.

Have a great Thanksgiving Day everyone!

Have a great Thanksgiving, TLP, and enjoy making ambrosia from across the street.

Amoeba here. Surely you've heard the line, "In America, it's not how much it costs, it's how much you save!" With all this emphasis on saving, it's no wonder Jesus sells so well. Not that he'd recognize his own brand ...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Forty foot marshmellows?????????? You mean I could get one of those and get an ordinary marshmellow to get that big? Oh, wait--you mean, you can SHOOT the marshmellows 40 feet, right? If you wait 'til they get stale, they'd be right deadly. That happened at PSU games, ya know, people were getting pelted with stale marshmellows...oh, I'm on a tangent.

Anyway, that's a strange item. Lots of poor people in retail will be working tomorrow.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving, TLP. The store I see having so many sales and flyers is Kohl's. They spend a fortune on advertising and mailings!!

It would take me a full day to read all the flyers we got today. Have a great Thanksgiving. I'm going to do without reading.

Have a great Thanksgiving, TLP!

That toy gun reminds me of what a friend of my friend said to her 2 year old when he was playing with colourful soap bubbles: "Play with your gun, bubbles are dangerous!"

The paper was heavy with flyers today! I will stay home tomorrow and not fight the crowds. Nothing I need that badly.

I hope you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I think that sounds like a great toy. I also covet the Darth Vader Toaster... Good stuff. Money well spent.

The more the prices come down the more I think what do I want with that cheap stuff.
It's not that I have ideas above my station I just feel it's not a time to spend money I don't need to. Just call me Mrs Scrooge.
Christmas? Bah humbug!
