Tea and After Christmas Shopping

I went to Walmart this morning for a bag of dog food.

I walked out with $344's worth of Christmas decor and candy for $37 (that's tax included).

Oh, and the bag of dog food.

All of the Christmas stuff was 90% off!!!!

It took me 3 trips from the van to the house to unload my haul, each time going up two flights of stairs, straight to the attic, to deposit bags of lights, silk poinsettas and Santa hats, etc.

The fourth trip was to haul in a 36 lb. bag of dog food.

I was so thirsty from shopping and unloading that the last thing I wanted was a pot of hot tea.

So I had iced today instead.

Celestial Seasonings Raspberry Zinger.

Rebecca had insisted that I make her tea last night and then she never drank a drop of it.

All I had to do was pour it over ice.

So pretty!

I had to photograph it quick before I drank it all.

Feels good to have a jump on next Christmas already!

Hope your day is as productive!

Such bargains! And at least you remembered the dog food (I would probably have forgotten in the buying frenzy!).

Your zinger does look pretty and very refreshing.

Sounds like you really did good. My sister does the after sales too. RZ is one of my all time faves. Iced tea is what I drink during the day most of the time. It did turn off cold again, down to the 60's. LOL
