On a recent outing, I stopped by CVS in my old neighborhood. The particular store always had great markdowns and I surely miss going there on my regular shopping rounds.
The store still had a great selection of Valentines merchandise for 90% off. Normally, I don’t buy foreign made items, but this little lion just stole my heart. When his paw is pressed, he sings “Try a Little Tenderness”. For a buck, it was a great deal and it made me happy. Next year for Valentines, my niece will love it.
The little lion was powered by three Duracell batteries, which I removed before I stored the toy away. The gift bag was also 90% off. Over the course of this year, I’ll find other seasonal items for pennies on the dollar.
When next year rolls around, I’ll have a nice collection of seasonal things to make gift bags or baskets. It’s wonderful to be able to create a nice gift and not spend a fortune.
