Day 211:

It’s Wednesday and it’s back out to shop for groceries, pellets, gas up the car,… bla-bla-bla…

First stop in Danbury was Walmart

The entire store has been recently renovated, adding a larger food section.

Then, we stopped at Marshalls… ooo – la – la!

 

then Burlington

Our last stop was in New Fairfield for gas at Mobil and groceries at Shaw’s and it was back home – and back to work.

Day 186:

It’s Saturday – no appointments,  but much to do to prepare for tomorrow.  Did as much as I could before having to go to Enterprise Car Rental in Danbury, CT to renew our rental contract for our little Toyota Yaris.

                                                     and of course the radio station is on Z-100

Flew back home to have a quick bite to eat – and then went back out with my Mom and sister Lisa…

We shopped at Marshalls

Then Walmart

Another quick stop at Bed Bath & Beyond and Shop Rite.

Then it was back home to finish setting up all my appointments for tomorrow.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 41

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 41:

It is the last day of summer vacation for the kids.  Melissa actually starts her college classes over at West Conn today – David tomorrow.  And Amanda, Sara and Jonathan also start classes tomorrow at New Fairfield Middle and High School.  I am not looking forward to having to get up very early – so working until the wee hours will have to change.

Made a quick run with Sara and Jonathan back to Marshall’s to exchange a pair of Jonathan’s jeans.  Then stopped at Staples to pick up some school supplies – their actual lists will be given on the first few days of school from each teacher.  After paying exactly $242.00 – I couldn’t help but think – this is only the beginning – I will be back at least another 2 more times!  The good thing is, Staples always has what I need – but just in case, Wal-Mart is in the same shopping center as well as Marshall’s and HomeGoods – and it’s an easy 15 minutes or so drive from home!

Soccer practice for Jonathan started today.  I am thankful that I live just under 5 minutes from the New Fairfield Schools

Dinner was Meatballs and Spaghetti – Jonathan’s favorite and a change from all the grilling.

My Life as a Realtor – Day 38

Day 38:

A really, really easy day – and very well appreciated!  Matt – from Tech Gurus – 646-867-0778 – came over to drop off David’s computer – he had just dropped off Melissa’s lap top a few day ago… what would we do without him.  He comes to our house – charges near to nothing compared to shops that I’ve been to in the past and he is always available when I have a question about purchasing a new cameraweb cam – and lap top or computer.

After working a bit in the morning – Amanda, Sara and I went school shopping to Marshall’s in Danbury.  Awesome prices for lots of great clothes and shoes.

I believe most everyone is enjoying these last few days of summer vacation and busy getting kids ready for school since my cell phone only went off a few times with e-mails during the entire time I was out.

Day 30:

Morning appointment – a CMA(Comparative Marketing Analysis) in Brewster.  A lovely couple with a beautiful house looking to put it on the market – I can’t wait to share this with you!

Then – off to the office – just for a bit until it was time to show a home in New Fairfield – 3rd showing.

By now I was starving, so I treated myself to an iced coffee and an old fashioned donut at Dunkin Donuts in New Fairfield

Then it was time to shop for hubby hub – he’s leaving for Portugal… tomorrow!

So, I ran to Marshalls in Danbury …

and then to Sears at the Danbury Fair Mall.

I was able to buy all that was needed in both stores.  Went home, made dinner – then back out to take photos of a foreclosure and to show a condo in Danbury.

Shopping on a Budget in Danbury CT

This week I went shopping in Danbury, Connecticut.  With the economy being where it is and the heating and holiday season upon us, getting the most for my dollar was, and always is, important to me.

A few stores I went into to purchase a Closing Gift and start my Holiday Shopping was on Newtown Road in Danbury – off exit 8 on I-84.  I simply parked my car and had access to a few great shops like – HOMEGOODS
