I did buy the AWESOME cow purse at a Habitat for Humanity thrift store for $1 that morning...but I plan to use it every year for "dress like a cow-get free chicken" day:) Let me know if you want to join me next year.
A lot of my blogging friends did it too. Check out THIS POST by Money Saving Mom and the links at the bottom if you want to see some other cow costumes.
The other thing I learned is that there is a K-mart in Loveland. They had 50% off the already reduced price for toys, and I had a $5/20 of Toys coupon for K-mart. I also found a toy reduced at Target for 75% off. I got $86 of toys for around $18. These are GOOD electronic- sound making toys. I choose not to picture them because nephews and our niece might be receiving them:)
