While we were up north, Bria saw a hat at the Children's Place that she really wanted. Mamah agreed to give her chores so she could earn the money to buy it herself. And that is exactly what she did. Then Chloe saw the hat in all its cuteness and wanted one, too. So we did the same thing for her.
I should have just known that Sophie would want one as well. Instead, she tried to steal either of her sisters' hats as often as possible, and when they discovered it on her head a lot of screaming happened. Finally, I told Sophie I'd just buy her a hat, but then I never got to the store and then we were back in Cedar City, which doesn't even have a Target, much less a Children's Place.
So, I promised I'd go while I was in St. George teaching lessons today, and I did. What I didn't know was that the Children's Place is having a "monster sale" (their words), and it was indeed monster. I went in for a hat and came out with 4 pair of jeans, 2 t-shirts, 3 skirts, a sweater, and three adorable patriotic hair pretties for July 4th. Oh, and a hat.
For all this I paid the astoundingly low price of $40.76 with tax. I just went through and added up the regular prices of everything I got and it was $164.50. And I am not mathematical enough to bother figuring what the sales tax would have been. Obviously, I got some great deals and a head start on school clothes for Bria and Chloe. Sophie got a couple cute things, too.
And since gas in St. George was $4.21 a gallon, it was an even better deal.
