This week’s shopping could be called “The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat!”  I got some great deals–cheap laundry soap,  free toothbrushes, bargain makeup and a super deal on hair styling oil. But I also felt really bummed when my CVS did not carry the free training pants, Rite Aid did not have the free hooks, and my Target did not have the 10-count packages of All detergent. I guess that’s how it goes for all of us sometimes–we get some deals and miss out on others. It keeps things interesting! How did your week go? More victory or defeat?
