Give Me Back My Five Bucks

Mariners game this weekend

So this Saturday BF and I are driving down to Seattle with another couple to go watch a Mariners game. We got lower level tickets for only $25 each! That’s cheaper than buying them from the box office! And that includes parking, which is awesome and very convenient. The 4 of us will split the cost of gas, and that’s about it for costs. Aside from ballpark food, that is. BF is mildly obsessed with their garlic fries, so I’m sure we’ll get a double order of those to share along with burgers or hot dogs or something like that.

The other couple wanted to know if we were interested in stopping at the outlet mall after the game. I had to politely decline. Both BF and I are trying to keep our costs to a minimum right now. Plus, there’s nothing I need! But we did decide to stop in Target so I could pick up some make-up since it’s SO MUCH CHEAPER in the USA. I only need pressed powder and blush, so I don’t think I’ll spend more than $20. For make-up, I just use drug store brands – and save the expensive stuff for my skin care. Can’t afford to do both, so I choose my battles. :)

    Lucky lucky me I have a Sisterin-Law who works for Christian Dior Fragrance and Skincare, and I get lots and lots of stuff from her, so I can wear top of the range creams and perfumes and it does,nt cost me a thing.
