Another day

Just a few days to go and it'll be October. Days just seem to breeze by and I don't even notice it. I guess that's what happens when I love what I'm doing at work and I don't have to force myself to doing my job :)

By the way, I just wanted to add that hubby and I still went to S&R during their 3-day sale and we went on a Saturday. After lunch. Surprisingly, there weren't a lot of people. The queue was manageable. We got to buy the things that we need but I had to restrain myself from grabbing everything I liked because we were on a tight budget. I also chose the things that were on sale so that we could save too. Otherwise, if I'll just buy the things in their regular prices, that defeats the purpose of going there on sale, right? LOL!

I plan to save up and prepare for the next year March sale. I'll come better prepared financially and with a game plan to boot :D

Happy Wednesday! The weekend is almost upon us :)

Welcome to the Jungle!

Remember last Wednesday I said my hubby and I are going to S&R's 1st day of their year-end sale? We did and it was past 1pm when we got there. Bad move. There were no more push carts available. The queue to the cashiers already snaked (like a giant snake) around the warehouse. There wasn't even enough room to maneuver around the displays as it was so crowded. I think the problem is they don't have enough cashiers. I mean, they do this twice a year and they should have prepared, right? Right. Even the line to buy food (I was craving for their roasted chicken) was uber long and there were kids everywhere who I'm sure were wishing they were just at home playing LOL!

Hubby and I just checked out the deals and found out that we don't need most of them anyway. And for me, it was just not worth it so we went home. We planned to return on the last day of the sale which is this Sunday. Our gameplan is to be there right before store opens at 8am and as quickly as we can, get the things we need and he'll already queue in the cashier while I scour for other stuff to buy. This doesn't guarantee that we'll be done shopping in a breeze but at least it's better than standing in line for 4 hours or more.

After what we have experienced though, we have decided against returning to S&R on Sunday. I'm sure there will be throngs of people who like us, want to go back on the last day of the sale. Maybe we can go there on a Monday and check out the items. Some might still be on sale, you know LOL! I noticed the prices of the items we like doesn't differ much so we can go back anytime. I just want to buy some of those party cups and plates in red or maybe a pack of Libby's sausages. Til next year's sale, S&R! I hope we can find the strength to brave you next time :-D

S & R Sale - Sept. 15 to 19

I am so excited today. Hubby and I applied for a membership at S&R and we decided to do it because it's their year-end(?) sale from Sept. 15 to 19. We're definitely going today which is the first day and we'll brave the crowd of shoppers who want to get good deals.

We tried their NY pizza combo and it was delish! For only 99php, we had it sliced in two and we shared the bottomless soda for 39php. The pizza had a lot of toppings and I can say it's better than the other pizza I've tried. Jeremy had ice cream for himself and for the first time, he wasn't able to finish it LOL! Well, I think it only had about 3 spoonfuls when he gave up hehehe! I want to try their rotisserie chicken later. I read good reviews about it and can't wait to try it for myself.

So, my shift is done in about 23mins. I'll eat a quick breakfast and will sleep in a few. Hubby will fetch me around 12nn so better get ready for the jungle later :D
