Saturday shopping

Every year the only thing I really want for Christmas is spending money. I love hitting the after-Christmas sales. So, this morning I went shopping by myself. I hit WalMart, Michael's, Books a Million, and Hobby Lobby. Here's my booty.............
 At Michael's I found some "as is" bargains. The puzzle was $2.75, sketch book was $3.50, and the artist's hand was $3.75. The pinky finger was off but a little SuperGlue will fix that! The sketch book was missing the back cover and the puzzle tin was bent.
This Mega Block set was $7.50. The box was bent.
 The Charisma yarn is needed to finish a project and the Red Heart was from WalMart. It's also needed to finish a project.

 At Books a Million I found the next two books in the Outlander series that I posted about yesterday. The Simply Crochet magazine was a surprise to me. I had no idea that I could find this magazine at BAM! I wanted this issue for the Cowl Poncho pattern that Pammy Sue and Lucy have been making.

At Hobby Lobby, I used my 40% coupon and got a yarn winder.
 Here's the artist's hand with some of the ceramic ones I collect.
 My son and his sweet wife gave me this bird feeder for Christmas.
 Hope the squirrels can't get to it!
My feet hurt! I wish someone could tell me how to keep them from hurting. I honestly believe I have tendinitis because they hurt on the top of my foot, not the bottom. Also, if anyone has a cure, or at least a relief , from tinnitus please let me know!

Great buys, Charlotte! Let me know how you like the yarn winder; I had a similar model but had to return it because the yarn kept falling off as it wound.

Look at all your fun goodies! I get so much more done when I shop by myself. I just love that bird feeder...cute! Sorry I have no suggestions for your ailments. Seems like I have a new one every day too!
