Ok, so I got an Expression from dh and dear sister last weekend for my b-day, how awesome! Then I saw the Walmart ad for Black Friday and went and bought myself another one. I returned the original one on Saturday and now have the black one, the 2 new carts and was able to pick up another Paper Dolls cart on Friday for $30. I still have money to spend and dh told me to make sure it was on scrappy stuff, how awesome!!!

Was that too bad of me?

Heck no! You just got more for the money but still have the originally intended gift, the Cricut.

As long as the gift givers don't mind, then it's ok. Sometimes it's best to not say anything.

Getting a better bargain is great, it's also neat that DH says to spend any money left over for craft stuff. Sounds like a win win to me. :)

Nope not bad just good money manager... I also told my kids not to get me anything for Christmas ...I can't stand thinking they are buying full price... ds and dil went shopping Friday so I printed them a HL coupon and showed them what I didn't have and wanted! lol

I think that was a smart buy!

Now that is what I call a smart shopper and a wheeler dealer.

Wooo Hoooo for you! An Expression and money to spend. Nothing wrong with that, I think you are a genius.

A similar thing happened a few years ago. DH bought me the Purple Cow when it was
$80.00. I took it back and bought two Fiskars for $25.00 each and had more spending money.
