A Tightwad Triumph

I'm a card-carrying tightwad. I do things like make and follow a budget, use a price book, pantry shop, and other strategies basic to tightwadding. So when I find a great bargain in an unexpected place, I just have to tell someone about it. I've been looking to buy a couple more of those 8" x 8" Pyrex dishes. DH and I hate cooking on Sunday night, so I've been making a casserole during the week and freezing half of it for Sunday. I have two of these dishes already, but wanted two more so I could stockpile the freezer, and/or make two different casseroles at one time. My Wal-Mart quit carrying Pyrex, and I'm not big on Anchor Hocking. Target has the dish for $6.49. The Kroger near me had it for $6.99. I last bought one at Wal-Mart for $3.79. So today when I was in Kroger, I happened to go down the "Target and Wal-Mart wannabee housewares aisle." Normally, I avoid this aisle as it makes my trip through the store longer and I don't buy housewares at my grocery store. But lo and behold, Kroger had my Pyrex dish on sale (with my Kroger Plus Card) for $3.49! So I bought two of them. A tightwad triumph!!

Yea for you on your dish find. I always feel good when I can save a $ or 2 like that. Your stitching is great and I really like your fabric storage cabinet. Cool.
