So we headed out Saturday afternoon, the Hubs and I.
I snapped this shot at 1pm as we pulled out of the driveway. It's our first "Snow Event" of the Season!
We went to the Gun Shop(Buy local!). I had told Hubs that Saturday was NOT a good idea, seeing as Deer Season opens Monday morning. I knew they'd be swamped and they were!
Next stop, we hit another Rite-Aid in another town.
We got there right after a shoplifter had fled the store. He left a trail of destruction in his wake inside the store. The manager who was still quite upset told me that they had caught this guy stealing and when he was confronted he started clearing shelves of merchandise and knocking down displays. There was a huge pile of gift cards on the floor he had thrown from an endcap and all kinds of perfume and make-up gift sets littering one aisle. What a mess! They were waiting on the police to show up before they cleaned up the store.
After that bit of excitement, I picked up 4 more Arm & Hammer Laundry Detergents, 2 more Shave Gels & 4 more Monster drinks, using BIL's card.
After Qs it came to $20.50 + tax.
I paid with my $20.50 in +Ups from yesterday(so all the tax came off the order) and I got $14 in +Ups back.
I also bought 2 more $50 Home Improvement Gift Cards(out of reg. income funds)so I can add another $20 in bonus +Ups to my +Ups stash.
I got a mess of rain checks too.

We then hit the Restaurant Supply Store for 2 standard items in this house....
And a 5lb block of cheese....
And this is a local business too. I am glad to see they are reopened after being decimated in the flooding of September 2011.
Then it was a romantic lunch for two at Wendy's. Oh yum.....insert eye roll here......
Afterwards, we stopped in a beverage distributor to do some adult beverage shopping. In PA, you can't buy 6 or 12 packs of beer(unless it's a place like a restaurant that also has a license to sell alcohol that is consumed off premises). You have to go to a beverage distributor, though there are a few grocery stores that can sell beer too now here, and you have to buy a case.
I "heart" the alcohol laws in PA......insert eye roll here......
So this particular Beverage Distributor was taking part in SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY. They had a guy from a local microbrewry start-up in the store giving out samples(SAMPLES!)and promoting their brew. There was a special price for Sat. only on the local brew and the store was running a 10% off imports and micros on Saturday.
That was enough to entice us to open our wallets and purchase some beverages.
Yes, I use coupons and rebates when I buy liquor. Why would anyone think otherwise? ;-)
We came home and what did I find in the mail on Saturday?
Why the 1st Christmas Card of the season!
Thank You Sonya Ann! 8-))
So that's my jam packed Saturday.
Today I am lying low, working on my Meal Plan for this coming week, doing some house chores and taking a nap. We might drag out the Holiday decorations later but no pressure to get that all done today.
What are you up to today?
