The Hubby is actually trying to get me to shop more. Shocking, I know. He figures, we have a budget and although it's nice to put extra in savings each month, I should be able to spend the money too if I want/need to. Especially on items like clothes...which I rarely buy.
I'm a binge shopper... I'll go for months (literally) without buying a single piece of clothing (including accessories, shoes, etc.) then in one fell swoop, I'll buy a whole bunch of things. Sigh. Need to be more consistent.
Anyway! I had an afternoon off work recently and decided to go shopping. I hit up Big Lots and found a good deal on Sunflower oil (you'll see that coming up again in a future DIY post). $5 for a huge jar! Sweet.
Next, I swung by TJ Maxx and found these AWESOME Merrill Lithe Glove Barefoot Running shoes for $60.
Then, over at Target they had some pretty cami's on sale for $6 each, as well as a cute cardigan (similar one here) on clearance for $11. I'm hooked on cardigans - I wear one about twice a week to work - they are extremely versatile and layer well in the summer so I don't freeze at the office.
Over at Walmart (of all places) I found some gourmet raw milk blue cheese - $2.36 for 4 oz. Much excitement! I'll be using that in a future post as well, stay tuned for a fantastic sandwich.
Also, a few days ago, I stopped by Goodwill to look for some party duds (spoiler alert: costume party in the near future) and it just happened to be tax free day on all clothes (including belts, shoes, ties, and suspenders. Yes, suspenders.) I may or may not have spend $103 dollars. I may or may not have blown the clothing budget for the next 6 months. But, I was impressed by how many incredible deals I found. Almost everything I bought was either brand new (original store tags still on it) or practically new, with no signs of wear and tear. The few exceptions to that were 1 of the pairs of shoes I bought (a scuff mark on the heel) and the party duds (which I don't care so much about since I won't be wearing them in public). Here's the line-up:
- 6 belts
- 4 ties
- 1 pair suspenders
- 2 men's dress shirts
- 1 women's sweater
- 1 costume party shirt
- 1 t-shirt
- 4 skirts
- 1 blazer
- 2 pairs heels
- 1 pair flats
- 1 complete set sheets (brand new - still in the original packaging!)
- 1 stoneware baking dish
- 1 leather-look day planner
Any good deals happening in your neighborhood lately?
