$5.43 on 8-9-10 [Saturday Steals]


Does it matter that my Amazon order was $5.43 on 8-9-10? Probably not.  But I had to share. I thought it was funny.

Now, what did I get for my five bucks and forty-three cents?

First, I got a brand new hardcover copy of VIDALIA IN PARIS by Sasha Watson.
When Vidalia wins a scholarship to study art abroad for the summer, she can’t believe her good fortune. Paris is filled with surprises, including Julien, the nice bookstore clerk Vidalia should like as more than a friend, and Marco, the mysterious art dealer she can’t stay away from. By the time she finds out the truth about the paintings Marco sells, she’s fallen for him too hard to really care. But when his crimes threaten to involve her directly, Vidalia has to separate reason from passion.
That was a whopping $2.14.  Which is 87% off of list price.  Yeah, total steal.  It's still like $2.26 today, so if you want a copy, you should grab one now.

Second, since Monster found my Zune tucked away in a pocket in his car, and since Spyrrie chewed up my earbuds, I needed a new pair so that I could finish up listening to WONDROUS STRANGE.  I found a pair for $3.29.  That's a full 78% off of the list price of $14.95.  Score!  Of course, they've gone back up to $12.41 now, and before I could grab my parents a couple of pair, but I was totally stoked about my steal, and the fun sequential numbers of the total and the date, so I had to share with you guys.

So, what kind of steals did you guys get this week?  You should tell us all about them.  Write a post (or just leave a comment) and link up over at Archives of Our Lives where Camille hosts this fun meme.  It runs all weekend, so you still totally have time.

Um, I'm so sorry I never commented on this until now. Don't be mad at me. I had a hectic week (no excuse). Anyway, thanks for participating a week ago! And great steal. Those earbuds look darling.
