Tara recently was lucky to pick up a nice haul at Walmart’s after-Christmas clearance – items as much as 75% off.  Here’s what she purchased:

Tea lights
Candle holder
4-pk shirt boxes
2 4-pks of ornaments
3 single ornaments
2-pk pot holders
Tree skirt
3 damask table cloths
4 lawn candy canes
2-pk boys’ boxers
Kids’ pajama set
Nerds chapstick set
All You magazine
6-pk penguin straws
6-pk plastic cups
2 bowls
Serving platter

And she spent only $33.92 for everything!  Then, she hit up Walgreens and worked her Penny Pinchin’ Magic and for $8.15 she picked up:

5 votives
4 bars of soap (2 frogs and 2 trains)
2 plastic cups
Bag of potpourri
2 wooden yard stakes

Nice work Tara!!!
