    My birthday was Dec 20th and I tried to take advantage of the offers that retailers and restaurants offered despite being under the weather. First I went to Denny's and had the build your breakfast (4 items) free with the purchase of a beverage (milk) so that was $5....got a Mary Brown chicken sandwich free (loyalty member email was received) after picking up son from school and he loved it.I believe it is $6.99 normally but I can see why..soooo delicious. A customer there told me about eating free at Wok of Fame buffet..went home n Googled and it seemed true.i tried to call to see how much I'd have to pay for my 5 yo to eat but no answer. We went and they wanted me to pay $17.99 for him to eat them after talking with the manager he said he'd lower the cost to $12.99 but I took my son to get what he wanted at McDonald's then came back and had one serving of food. That pancake breakfast was very filling ,though I brought home 2 of the 4 pancakes).
    I hadnt been spending much besides bills , grocery ,son's recreational activity due to a strict budget) so i bough seversl pieces of clothing things for son's birthday (Dec 14th) and Christmas ..didn't do any boxing day shopping like I usually did in the past when I was employed. I had received a birthday mailer from Maurices for 25% off any regular priced item and 25% off purchases so I decided to go to Georgetown as Mark's was having an additional 20% off clearance and I remembered dome pieces that I had seen n liked from my previous visit about a month prior. Got some stuff at 50% off the lowest price in Carter's (for son to wear next winter) then & got some items at following at Reitmans

    Only bought few things for son's birthday (Dec 14th) and Christmas ..didn't do any boxing day shopping like I usually did in the past when I was employed. I had received a birthday mailer from Maurices for 25% off any regular priced item and 25% off purchases at Reitmans and Payless so I decided to go to Georgetown on the 27th as Mark's was having an additional 20% off clearance and I remembered some pieces that I had seen n liked from my previous visit about a month prior. Got some stuff at 50% off the lowest price in Carter's (for son to wear next winter) then & got some items at following at Reitmans(they were having a 60% off the lowest price clearance sale❤...receipt stated I saved $36.37)

    4) sexy cap sleeve lace infused top $5.99 (originally ticketed 24.90,clearance, $11.99). At Reitmans, the sales girl was a bit rude and jumped to tell me I couldn't use my 25%birthday discount on clearance items.I was calm and told her it only mentioned off my purchase"& even though she took my phone n read it she went to the other staff who acted like they were doing me a big favour (I still have to call the HO)..receipt stated i saved $68.55...I bought
    1) Blue blazer $18 (originally ticketed $79.90,clearance $59.99)

    Last but not least, I had stopped at Penningtons en route to the mall to use the 50% birthday coupon I had received by mail..I had bought a jumpsuit but it was too big when I tried it at home so I've since returned it.i had received an additional 15% off my entire purchase as the item had some flaws but she wasn't able to bypass the register to lower the price .I had kept the black top I bought $4.25 (originally ticketed $44, clearance $8.99) & costume gold charmed bracelet $4.76 (originally ticketed $16,clearance $13.99)..
    I had also used my b'day offer from BK for a poutine & the offer from Harveys to a free classic burger......
    To say the least I am happy I spoiled myself on & for my birthday...

    Wow. I always felt a bit sorry for people whose birthday was so close to Christmas. I thought their birthday might get lost "in the noise." But you rocked it.
