NO NO, I didn't repeat myself in the title. You've all heard of the Charlie Brown Christmas tree I'm sure. He saves this poor little tree just in the nick of time and "Saves Christmas". Well, our Saving Christmas was a little different this year. On a cold slushy Saturday we were strolling through CVS looking for windshield washer, and noticed some "Peanuts" characters on the Christmas clearance shelf. Wow!!!! 50% off. Off of $16.95 that is, making each one just $8.47. So the 3 that we liked would have come to a total of $25.42. A little to rich for our pocketbook.
The next day we were back in CVS and now they were a whopping 90% off. What a deal. Just $1.70 each. Well after some discussion about not collecting more STUFF, and agreeing that they were cute, even without Lucy, we decided to get them.
We ended up saving Christmas for Peanuts at just $0.07 (yes that is seven cents). Mere peanuts when you think of it.
