Missy, here. After a week of vacation at the beach, plus turning around and leaving early the following morning for my son's college orientation, I haven't done any cooking (other than spaghetti) in a while! So I thought I'd share about a great deal I got.
It was at Bealls Outlet (kind of like T.J. Maxx or Marshall's). They have name brand items that are discounted. And the longer they're in the store, the more they get discounted (by using a colored dot system).
Well, I found a fantastic Calphalon 12-inch fry pan for a great deal!
The original retail price was around $75. The official Calphalon website typically sells it for $50 but is now selling it for the sale price of $40.
I bought mine on the back clearance wall at Bealls. It was apparently marked down because it had a dent in the metal rim of the lid...
So the lid didn't really fit well.
But I saw the POTENTIAL. I bought it for $20. Took it home. And attacked it with a pair of pliers. :)
And TADA! The lid fits well enough to use just fine.
Have I said before how much I LOVE a good deal. At the RWA conference, Mary Connealy was teasing me because I was so proudly telling everyone what a deal I had gotten on my RITA dress. :)
The next deal I want to find is a new Crock Pot. My setting dial broke off, so I'm having to use a pair of pliers to adjust the temp. I like to buy new (rather than at a yard sale) for something that has to stay plugged in all day, sometimes while I'm away. I wonder if Edna has any young cousins???
Will head to Bealls and T. J. Maxx soon. I'll have to let you know if I find any great deals!
What's the best bargain you've ever gotten?
