After our Saturday morning bike ride.....Hubby realized he needed new biking shoes....so before heading home, we thought lets just stop by REI and see what they have................SCORE!!!!!!!! REI was having a Garage Sale for members only...lol (I say that because you can be a lifetime member for $20.00-we joined when my middle child was 13 years old....that child is now a 30 year old adult) okay....back to the subject at hand ----- so first shoes I spot are the ones to the left in this picture....I was not even looking for any shoes....but these are lightweight running shoes....and I could use a pair...plus the price tag stated a whopping $7.98 -- yes, no lie.....what the heck....anyone could use a pair of running shoes at this price, even if they do not run....hubby had no luck finding riding shoes....then I spotted my second pair.....oh heaven is looking down on me this morning.....I spot a pair of vibram (big foot shoes, as my hubby calls them), not sure if they are my size....but for the price of $19.98....I am going to sit right down and slip them on....and see if they fit....another pair for me today....snug as a glove! I can't find my other half....now, I know how I lost him on the biking path -- but, in REI come on, it is not even as big as a Costco....how did he become lost -- so as I am walking around the loop for the second time....and he is searching for me....we reunite...and he has in his hand a pair of biking shoes....I am thinking he did not find them in the garage sale area....but, so he finds them and it is going to cost about $100. -- no problem...I just saved a bundle on two pair of shoes...and then he excitingly tells me...guess what these cost....????? $14.98 ---- so we take our finds to the front counter to check out. Well.....the best part is here at check-out....the clerk asks us if we were aware "that if you buy one shoe the second shoe is free" ---- So we buy my Vibrams for $19.98 , his pair of biking shoes are free...yes, free.........and then I pay $7.98 for my running shoes -- The total cost for 3 shoes with tax came to $30.29 -- that made my day....I don't think the pair of flip flops I had on were under $30. -- I was giddy all day.......I kept saying to my hubby "SCORE" -- I do think he had his fill of me Saturday!!!!!!! First a bike ride, me taking pictures, and him waiting......then my excitement of getting 3 pair of shoes, for only $30. --secretly, I think he liked the idea of only spending $30. on 3 pair of shoes also!
