Almost there...

Wednesday, February 20, 2002

I don't know how it happened. Somehow Rick and I threw all caution to the wind and became massive consumers for the last 3 days. On his way to work yesterday, he had to stop at Frys for a part for work. While there, he noticed a bunch of "Open Box Buys" (which is remarkably enlightened for Frys, who is notorious for slapping a sticker on the box and trying to sell returned/used items with missing parts as new). In amongst those was the Nikon Coolpix 775 we'd been daydreaming about. He asked what the price was, and bought it quickly before they changed their minds. Bought it, and a 2 year extended warranty, still bringing the camera to just about the price we could've gotten it for at the lowest priced places online, but significantly cheaper than any reputable dealers.

So now I've finally got the little digital camera I've been dreaming of. And a new mattress. And the coat of my dreams. And a great new coat for Rick. And plane tickets to Seattle. Okay, I'm pretty sure I'm not allowed to spend any more money at all this year. Yikes! But I've also managed to acquire everything I wanted, most of it at significantly less cost than I was expecting to have to pay. Best deal: my new coat. Definitely. Followed closely by the camera. We'll see how the bed ranks by the end of next weekend. Hee hee!
