Today I am using another one of Mama Kat's writing prompts.
Describe a time when you saved BIG.
In reality, there are so many options, because I tend to do a lot of research before I make a purchase, which can net me some really great deals. There is one deal which was both recent and exciting, though.
A couple of weeks ago I decided to bite the bullet and buy some Philosophy brand face wash called Purity. I have a small 2 ounce bottle of it which has been fantastic. I was headed towards a mall so I stopped and bought the 8 ounce bottle. It was $24. When I think about the price per gallon it makes me cringe. It's a lot of money. Then again, it's my face, you know? I bought it, feeling moderately guilty.
The very next day I got an email from Philosophy for $25 off $50. Woo hoo! Jackpot! A 32 ounce bottle is $52, so I don't have to add anything else to the cart, I get four times as much for $3 more - SCORE!
It's such an unimportant thing in the grand scheme of things, but it felt like an amazing victory to me.
