This Week's Shopping List: MIA

Theresia's list went missing in action all of a sudden. While we are looking for it we want to share on find from this week.

Kohl's is having a sale on a number of items. Two that we picked up were:

Luggage: We have a senior graduating from high school in June. One of our family traditions is to give the senior a luggage set. This is the time of year we start looking, and fortunately, the stores start having sales. Kohl's had a four-piece set for $46.99 (reg. $139.99) That caught our attention. We figured it was a 'loss-leader' and wanted to check the quality. So we checked it out. As we suspected, the quality wasn't up to what we thought would make a long-lasting gift. We did, however, find a four-piece set from American Tourister for $78.99 (reg. $199.99) We thought that it looked sturdy enough to handle frequent trips to Utah so we purchased it.

Shoes: Jeff always keeps and eye out for athletic (usually running) shoes. We have access to the Nike Employee store, but Jeff has typically wide feet and the typical Nike is made for a narrower foot. His running shoe of preference is Asics. He found a nice pair of Asics Kanbarra 4's for $39.99 (reg. $59.99). The shoes fit well and are right at the 'acceptable' price range. So Jeff will be comfortable out running this summer.

We'll keep looking for the grocery list and post it tomorrow.
