I've never done a "Thrifty Thursday" post today but we did our weekly shopping and got some great deals that I thought I would share. At Walmart we picked up a few things on our shopping list and saw these cute little infant outfits for TEN CENTS EACH! So we bought 10 outfits for a grand total of $1 and will send them to the Philippines in our next box. There's always a lot of babies in the neighborhood so I'm sure people will love having these for their kids. Our next stop was Albertsons (a chain grocery store on the west coast) and using their app we got avocados for 29 cents each and a 5 pound bag of potatoes for 75 cents among other sale items. The people ahead of us spent $70 on their groceries and we bought more than they did and only paid $18 (everything we bought were loss leaders and sale items; the cashier told them to download the app to get some deals but they didn't want to so they paid full price for everything--their avocadoes cost $1.20 each!).
On a non-thrifty note, the showerhead in my shower has been spraying water everywhere (we have hard water so these tend to get blocked with gunk) and after checking our local utility websites where we got low-flow showerheads free in the past (none are providing these now), we decided to pick up a new showerhead for $5 at Walmart. We installed it and it works fine but hubby cleaned up the old shower head with vinegar and now it works fine too. We should have tried cleaning the old showerhead before buying a new one!
On a totally unrelated note, I really wish I would have bought GameStop stock a while back when it was $4 a share. Due to a bunch of reddit vs hedge fund trader drama, the stock price skyrocketed to nearly $500 a share yesterday! Needless to say, the ordinary investors absolutely hammered the big hedge fund investors and the past couple of days have been better than any soap opera you could imagine.
