I got to work this morning to see an email from my mom saying that the recliner I was planning to buy (as Dh and my Xmas present) was on sale today and tomorrow morning only for 50% off!! It's been on sale for 10% off (regular price $500) the past 2 weeks and this afternoon I got it for $250! It was the last one they had, too. Dancing the happy dance :-) Dh loves it and it's so comfortable. About a year ago I saw a coffee table I wanted there that was about $200, so I was hoping they still had it and I would get it with the $200 saved on the recliner, but they no longer have it, darn.
Work was a half day and then we had a holiday lunch and party and got our bonus checks $1500 net (so really over $2100 total). Dd and I went thru the drive through at Taco Time this evening (the trip to purchase the recliner pretty much took away my dinner making time) and the girl tells us that the car in front of us paid for our order! So we paid for the order on the car behind us :-) Would love to know if it kept going forward or not. I've heard of people doing that, but it's never happened to me before.
