September 22

Sally Beauty Supply: $42.53

Unknown beauty supply store: $10.48.  Sometimes, Sally just doesn't carry the items that I'm looking for.

WalMart: $42.51.  I've never lost or broken a pair of prescription eyeglasses in my entire life, but since moving to California I keep losing my sunglasses.  The replacements were $24.00.

Clothes from TJ Maxx: $162.41.

Clothes from Sears: $57.04.  The Kardashian tunic was on clearance for 9.99, and I can understand why.  Although it happens to be one of the few things in the line that is non-hoochy, the designer must be smoking crack.  I was able to buy it in extra small and it fit over the clothes I was already wearing.  But a dress from the same dress that I tried on in size large wouldn't even zip.

Lunch from Wienerschnitzel: $4.71.  This is a SoCal chain, and I've never eaten there before.  It was OK, but nothing to get excited about.

Dollar store: $5.48.  The trash cans that I purchased here 3 years ago died last night.  I accidentally punched holes in them while replacing the trash bags.  So I had to replace them today.
