So, I went to the toy store last week. It is in another town, that I rarely go to, so its been awhile to say the least. Figured I would surprise DH with a new toy for me, that he gets to use. So I figured I would spend around oh maybe $50 to buy just one new toy, that I really wanted.

So once I get in there, I am like a kid in a candy store. It has been so long since I bought a new toy! I hit the clearance rack, and bought a new toy that looks like a popsicle. Haven't tried it yet, but it was normally like 40 on sale for 10. Then I decided to buy some blindfolds. And, well there was the whips and feathers right next to those, and then of course I decided to get the massage oil for a whopping 16 bucks, and then decided on another little toy for around 10 bucks. So I am standing in line to check out, and decide that I always do good with the $20 grab bags, so picked up one of those too! All in all, I ended up with 3 new toys, a little whip/feather get up, 2 blind folds, new bra, key chain, massage oil, warming lube, flower balm, a nice drink stirrer, and a guy shaped lollipop, I tossed in the lollipop in the trash. I walked out spending a little less than $80.

I was going to surprise DH here and there but he met me at the door when I got home, so he got to see it all. He had the same look the people in line at the store had! LOL. They all must think I am crazy, and I was just bargain shopping, geez!

So today I was shopping the clearance rack at our discount store with initials of WM, and well what do you know, they had some perfect black sheer scarves on clearance, so picked up 2 of those to tie DH up with this weekend, when we are kid free.

Needless to say, I guess I have a busy weekend coming up!!

Welcome to the board, canttakemuchmore.

I've not tried bargain shopping at my local toy store, but I will say I'm a sucker for those bins in places like Target!

Be sure to let us know how your weekend goes, sounds like you'll be able to use a lot of those items together!

I agree with Misty. It definitely sounds like you've got a great weekend coming up!


I'm a sucker for the bargain bins myself. I've never seen one in a toy store. If I get to the one I really want to I might have to keep an eye out and see if they have a clearance bin. Maybe my h would be nicely surprised.


Can't wait to hear about your fun weekend!
