To sweeten the deal, when we were at the smoothie place, they messed up our order and ended up giving us 2 medium smoothies instead of 2 smalls. We had our coupon, so we got 2 medium smoothies for the price of one small. There was so much smoothie to be had, I asked for an extra cup and Lou and Bee split the medium. I enjoyed the other. At the pretzel place we used our coupon and got two pretzels for the price of one plain. Bee, Lou and I all enjoyed pretzel. Bee still had all of her ice-cream money and had enjoyed the same snack as everyone else.
This evening we went to a local music street festival. She was pretty excited that there was still money in her envelope for another treat. I was trying to put her off another day since we had treated ourselves enough for one day, but frankly- this savvy shopper earned her treat. With her coupon, she had enough to get ice-cream for herself and one for Lou, with $ 1 left.
On our way back to the car, with dollar in hand, she spied a fairy halo with ribbons and flowy tule at a vendors table. She asked the lady how much they were and was told $2. She looked at her dollar and back to the lady and said that she only had one dollar. The nice lady told her they were on sale for $1 today and she could have whichever one she wanted. Bee made out like a bandit today. That’s the farthest I’ve seen $5 go. Maybe she should take over grocery shopping for me!
