Don't panic I didn't go crazy. I needed a couple of things for our vacation. I called in at Northern Reflections and picked up two t-shirts. The burgundy one was $7.99 and the yellow one was $5.99, so with 13% tax added on that came to $15.80.
We went to Sears also where I searched the sale rack and got the black and white capri's, which I think are Tanjay and paid after a further 40% discount $20.39 for. The black ruffled top is also Tanjay, and again after the extra 40% discount came to $13.79. The black and blue 3/4 sleeve t-shirts were under $15 each. I cashed in $10 worth of Sears points (didn't know I had them?) and ds gave me a $10 discount coupon when you spend $25. So all in all I paid $48.93 after including the 13% taxes.
It's not often I buy clothes so this is a splurge for me. Plus I got five tops and a pair of capri's for under $65.
We went to Herb n Sage in Barrie for lunch and had a breakfast for lunch. Dh had the same except he has sausage. It is so good and only $6.99 each. If you are in Barrie at all this is well worth the visit. The bread is organic, the jam home made, and they fry their potatoes with a mix of herbs including rosemary that makes all the difference.
Thanks also for all your good wishes re: paying off our mortgage I really appreciate them all.
