Three or More Tuesday!

Tam from "The Gypsy's Corner" is our lovely host of this weekly party, Three or More Tuesday. Stop by and say hi and check out all the fun post folks are showing today!!

Okay everyone, hold your hats! I, Diann, bought something at full retail price!! Okay, deep Feeling better? Before you all think I must have went over the deep end or had some kind of "thrifting overload", let me explain.

I have been doing different survey companies for a few years now. You don't get rich, but you can earn a little here and there. And many of these survey companies reward you with gift cards. I received a Walmart gift card for $25.00 from one of these companies recently. I generally kind of stockpile these cards and use them for gifts, groceries or some other neccessities. But, I decided to use part of this card for this pretty set.

My mom and I went to Sams Club the other day. I treated for us both to have a soft drink and slice of pizza before we started shopping. I used my Walmart Gift card. Then we shopped. I picked up a couple of boring things that we were out of. Then I saw this awesome set of four large ceramic serving trays in this cool black iron holder. It was $14.00 and I didn't even blink or feel guilty as I placed it in my shopping cart! LOL

  1. Oh I am so glad you put that right into your buggy! That is so awesome and versatile and I love it and at $14 I think that is a pretty thrifty buy!!

  2. Full price!!! At least it was a good full price for what you got :0)

  3. Great choice!! That is a wonderful serving tray set. Worth every penney.

  4. I love the serving tray set. That was still a bargain at $14.00..I love those gorgeous colors..

  5. Hi Diann, I am new to TOMT. I do like your bargain buy. The colors and great and nice size trays for many things. You have a nice blog and some great hints. I will be back. Pop over to my neck of the woods as I am just learning this theme. blessings

  6. Still a thrifty deal in my book. Enjoy!!!

  7. Ha! I did the same thing when I saw these at Sam's! I justified it by telling my husband they could be used all year long-red or green at Christmas, red or white at Valentine's, white at Easter, red at 4th of July, gold or green at Thanksgiving... He rolled his eyes and wandered off. I took that as agreement and paid for them!
