I am not a mall girl at all. I don’t think I ever was.
Earlier this week, my Mom told me that one of the malls near to me is open until 9 on Saturday and when she was there after 6 it was practically empty. That inspired me to go last night and finish off the rest of my Christmas list.
There was still a fair number of people in the mall when I got there at 8 pm. 😦 And as of December 1 that mall is open until 9:30 pm. I felt a little sad for the people who had to work so late.
On my to-go-to list was Lululemon, Bulk Barn and Old Navy.
Armed with a 30% off coupon for Bulk Barn and a 20% off coupon for Old Navy I was ready.
I decided to buy my Dad the expensive Lululemon men’s yoga shorts as I hate trying to come up with gifts that he would like/appreciate. I didn’t get him a birthday gift this year so we could call it a combo gift. 😉 I think it’s better that he be annoyed for a short period of time that I spent money on a gift he really likes than tell me he doesn’t like the gift I got him. Yes, my Dad has no tact. 😦
I went to Bulk Barn on the hunt for the Taste of Nature Mediterranean Pistachio bar. Again no luck. 😦 Because I had the coupon I picked up the flavours I hadn’t yet tried along with a couple of packets of hot chocolate and chocolate buttons for my shoebox project.
I went into The Body Shop looking for possible additions to my shoebox. Nothing grabbed me.
Then I saw Bath & BodyWorks. I was thinking hand sanitizer among other things. I found a lovely gift set that consisted of shower gel, body lotion, fragrance spray and a lip gloss in a reusable case. Perfect.
Princess doesn’t have any warm track pants that fit so I went to Old Navy to see if they had any. In the ladies’ section I found what I can only describe as “fashion” track pants. They were thin and capris. Made no sense to me. There was a pair that was not like the others and when I asked the employee about them, he told me they were men’s. But of course. Since Princess is tiny, we tried the boy’s section. 3 pairs of warm track pants at $10 each? Yes please! What you say With coupon they become $8 each! Yeah baby!!! I also bought matching hat, scarf, and gloves to go into the shoebox.
A quick stop at the grocery store completed my night.
