Blogger Confession: I am a sucker for a sale!

Posted March 1, 2012 by Felicia S in Blogger Confession / 17 Comments


So I have a confession: I am a sucker for book sales!  Seriously, it is like my head goes into a constant loop of “have to get the book while it is super cheap” vs “the book will be around and may go on sale later” argument.  Very seldom does that second argument win.  In fact, this past week it LOST BIG TIME!

Because I heard these words from the other Felicia (Ferisha) who tried to pawn them off on another friend of hers …

The Barnes and Noble PNR $3.99 Sale!  I was done for after that! (It is still going on as far as I can tell but I have banned myself from the site LOL)

I am going to give you a list of books coming my way but I first have to say that I DID stay in my Dave Ramsey budget!  I just won’t be doing to many other “going out” activities for the first 2 weeks of March as I blew almost all of my entertainment budget 🙂

Here was my haul:

Oh and because I checked each book against Amazon–I also got these two for an even better deal:

Purchased: February 28, 2012
Price: $0.99
Purchased: February 28, 2012
Price: $2.99

So are you a sucker for sales?

    YEAH! I am glad it is awesome. Different tone I have heard but I have total faith in T.H.

  3. Felicia the Geeky Bl

    LOL I totally blame that other Felicia—she is evil 🙂 I hope that you got a lot of pretties and this was such a good sale for restocking!

    Your husband would then shake his head—"Wait–she stays in budget but doesn't like Nascar?" "She is just insane" 🙂 :):)

  5. Felicia the Geeky Bl

    Glad to help lighten your pocket book. Think of all the pretty that will be on your shelf 🙂

  6. Felicia the Geeky Bl

    YEAH! This is one of the million reasons we get along—we have no self-control LOL 🙂

  7. Felicia the Geeky Bl

    Yes this sale is amazing and still going on. I am staying far far away because there are still books I want.

    Okay $90 poorer thanks Ferisha, I mean Felicicia! I found 21 books and feel no shame as this is the first time in a couple of months for me to buy "new" books as have bought and traded for used since September fires.

    Dude. B&N kicked my butt yesterday too!!!! You're so good though, still going to 'budget' and NOT do something else bc you spent the money!!!!My hubby would LOOOOVE you!!!! He'd say, "why can't you be RESPONSIBLE- like Felicia?" Um what? What's THAT? Hehe!!

    *shakes fist at Felicia*Darn you! Now I'm going to have to go to B&N to check out the sale. I do have a g/c I need to spend…. *evil laugh*

    I think I am the biggest on there is! I am afraid to add up all the confirmation mails I have from the Bookdepository for February alone, but they had that 10% discount going. But you sure have a lot of books I absolutely love on your list, so you are not going to regret it. And waiting for the next sale, what if the book is sold out? No, just pre-order it, buy whole series and enjoy. Which means no going to the movies or out to dinner this month, but well, I have to read!

    I jumped all over this sale too! I only wanted to spend $25 so I could get free shipping, but I couldn't stop myself. :/LOL
