One plus about working for the Big Box Store is I get to see what the good deals are on any given day and one thing I'll say about my store is they have the best clearance sales anywhere. Yesterday they had a one day extra bonus sale, 40% off the already marked down winter stuff.

Last week I scored a 100% cotton set for only $4.99.

I guess I'm just going to keep hoping to pick up extra shifts. I really need some call-ins for the next two weeks. I'm only scheduled for 7 days total out of the 14.
