You Get What You Pay For

She opened the box and found a pair of Zealot Bluetooth headphones inside.  She had never heard of the brand and assumed it was something he had found on Wish.  He was always finding gadgets there that he had to have.  Since she had mentioned wanting headphones recently, he took advantage of the knowledge for her birthday gift.

“Thanks, hun!  You remembered I wanted a pair.  Where did you get them, I have never heard of this particular brand?”

“Oh, they were a great bargain on Wish.”

She knew it… now how long would they last, if they even worked?

Let’s Make A Deal

Show me what you have to offer

And I will show you my heart

Bargain with me until

We strike a deal of love

I will pay for your emotions

With the beating of my heart

If the cost becomes too high

We will reconsider our deal

But until that time comes

I will yearn for you each day

And do all that I can

To honor this deal of love

Happy and Grateful – Day 317

November brings a chill in the air and the start of the holiday gatherings of family and friends.  I can’t believe I am down to the last two month of my challenge to find happiness and feel gratitude every day.  I hope you join with me in the comments or your own blog in this challenge.  No matter how small there is always a little good in even the worst day

I hope I can get through this ok… my laptop is acting funny with a sticking key.  I hope I don’t miss any typos.  Today aside from laptop difficulties has been ok.  I went and finally got the oil change in my car.  It ended up being about $8… I had won a gift card and I had a coupon so it was much cheaper than normal.  I was grateful to get it done before winter gets here.

I also reclaimed some space in the pantry because we took pop cans back for redemption.  I was happy to get the space uncluttered.  Then we turned around and spent the can money on fixings for a batch of chili tonight.  It was yummy!

So now tonight I try to write a little here and a little to a friend and then get some sleep.  A good way to end the night.  I hope you remember to find your happiness and feel your gratitude.  Have a wonderful night/day!

Day 34 – 100 Days of Happiness

I love to bargain shop.  Our local grocery store has a money-saving program where certain sale items will earn you discounts on fuel at their gas stations.  Today we bought food for the weeks meals and racked up some pretty good discounts.  Enough so that I got my gas at almost half price when it was all said and done.  Since we are a one income household every penny adds up and it really makes me feel good when our “smart shopping” pays off in the end with good discounts.  Kind of a silly thing to be happy over, but a penny saved is a penny earned after all.
