What $1.39 will buy

Ruf needed paint for one of the accessories that goes with his new Imperial Officer costume. I went to Hobby Lobby, used a 40%-off coupon, and purchased paint for $0.86.

Kohl's sent me a $10 gift card in the mail. If they're going to send me free money, I'll use it! Ruf needed new athletic socks, so I picked up a package on sale for $7. I had to spend at least $10 to make use of that card, so I found a pretty Laura Ashley dish towel for $3.49 at 50% off. I can always use more dish towels. My total purchase came to a whopping $0.53!

Not too shabby for only spending $1.39 out-of-pocket!

Added: Ruf has informed me that I bought the wrong paint. He didn't understand how I bought it so cheap. He wanted the model spray paint. Oops. I'll be spending a bit more to correct that mistake.
