made a purchase

April 30th, 2007 at 09:02 am

Remember my post about the Olympus Evolt E-500 camera back in September? The camera I've been salivating over forever? Well, we stopped in at Comp USA's store closing sale yesterday, and there it was...brand new, with two lenses...deeply discounted. The cheapest I've ever seen it on amazon is $630, and Comp USA was selling their last model for $475. After some deliberation, I bought it! I've never done something like that before. Normally when I spend that kind of money, it's poured into my engine. It feels a little weird to spend it on myself. I know it was the best deal I could find, though, and the camera is perfect.

I'm really, really excited! Project 365 just got more interesting! Big Grin

I'll still be able to pay off my smaller college loan in May, and everything else will carry on more or less as usual. I'll just have to live with a few less new books and pay a little more attention to what I'm putting in the Target cart.

Good news on the baby shower - I used a gift card to by fabric paints and invitations over the weekend. I found a great deal on cute invites - 4 invites with 4 thank you cards for $1 per pack! Can't beat that!

    I'm jealous. YD took her digital camera with her when she moved to NC. Now we don't have one!

    Congrats on the super duper find!

    There's a CompUSA that's closing nearby me, and I was hoping to score some deals myself. Unfortunately, the store is largely cleaned out at this point.

    i used to have a rubber plant. i'd like to get a fig tree, which i heard does very good indoors.
