    Talking FV is rubbing off on hubby!

    This is too funny, Jack was so excited that Mom & Dad gave him a gc to ACMoores for Christmas. He has been wanting an air brush and it just wasn't in the budget.

    So the other day he goes by himself, gc in hand, and he had 2 50% coupons from Micheal's. ACMoores honors competitors coupons.

    Complete Air Brush System
    $90 - $45(50%) = $45 + $3.60 tax = $48.60

    Goes and puts that in the car and goes back in.

    Then he picked up a book on all the how to's etc.. of air brushing as it has been a loooooong time since he did any.

    Book $24.95 - $12.48 (50%) = $12.47 + $1.00 tax = $13.47

    After using his gc from my parents he had to pay out of pocket a whopping $2.07!

    He was so proud of himself and so am I, he knew what he wanted and was determined that he wasn't going to get it until he had a good coupon to use.
