Looking at all of the things available from Big R, I continue to be happier and happier that they are here. For example, they carry many RV supplies. Indeed, if we'd known about the planned Black Friday/Grand Opening sale, we would have postponed our purchase of additional RV antifreeze. While we have nothing against Safari RV and are glad they are there, being able to buy supplies just down the street rather than 30 miles away in Reno is a big deal.
After taking the trailer home and parking it, we went to Walgreen's where there was a 25% off one-day-only sale. I'm running short on Breath-Right strips, and would have bought more than the one box they had on the shelf if possible. Again, we tried to restrain ourselves to buying things we've been meaning to pick up or that we would expect to be buying in the medium-term future anyway, in order to make the best of the discount.
In any event, we never went more than a couple of miles from the house, and we definitely didn't wade into Reno's anticipated mob of traffic and shoppers. OTOH, the buy-one-get-one-half-price sale at SAS in Reno is very attractive, Lisa needs new shoes, and it ends tomorrow, so maybe we'll assay a short trip there. But not to the mall, definitely not.
