Yes and no.

We spent $400 on a my new camera.  I was looking at professional cameras between $1k - $1.5k.  But, DH was researching cameras for me and came across a brand new one that wasn't even on the shelves yet.  So, we went to Best Buy and talked to the manager who special ordered it for us.  OMG!  We spent 1/3 the money and it's an awesome camera.  Will make a post about it later.  =)

We had a very frugal weekend. On Sat my son had a soccer game and I went to party city to get stuff for treat bags to hand out at the last game. I ended up finding mini trophies (my husband is the coach) and all kinds of little goodies and candy for cheap. On Sunday we rented red box movies and relaxed all day.

I bought a set of Paula Deen cookware (pots & pans & lids) that is normally priced over $100 for only $40

......and I ordered a memory foam mattress topper (3" solid memory foam) and a mattress pad for deep pocket mattresses from Overstock.com....they were already discounted and I got an extra 12% off this weekend!

$400 sounds like a great deal considering what you were looking at.  Can't wait to see some amazing pictures in this taken by you.

We did pretty good this weekend.  Spent $20 bucks to buy some wine for girls night and spent gas going and coming home, but other then that no cash spent.

We did not. We had a big end of summer bash and spent a lot of food and booze...

 You did get a good deal.  I just bought a set a couple of months ago and I spent about 140.  I really like them tho.
