Great Shopping Find

While shopping earlier this week, I managed to find a *great* deal at Express Men in one of the local malls. They were having a clearance sale and I spotted this brown fall/cool weather jacket with an interesting pattern on it that is hard to describe, but very appealing. The original price of the jacket was $79.99, but it had been marked down to $19.99 on the tag. Apparently it had been marked down even further than that. While at the register, I was prepared with a $20.00 bill in hand, but I had to give the sales clerk an "Excuse me?" look when she told me the final cost.

My final cost for an $80.00 jacket (including tax): $10.66.

It was all I could do to keep myself from squealing and piddling with excitement.

One is pleased that you managed to NOT squeal and piddle with excitement, that is ever so undignified!

Though one also understands the sheer unabashed excitement of a bargain well hunted and bagged!

Yes, finding and bagging a good bargain is very exciting. I do agree with you that squealing and piddling would not have done much for maintaining my maleness.

I am glad you got a jacket you like for a great price! I am also glad you didn't piddle yourself. ^_^

On both counts.
