Bargain Shopper

I have been quite the shop-a-holic lately. But in my defense, I have been using the slew of gift cards making my wallet bulky. I love getting gift cards and while most years it is rare for me to be gifted more than one, in the last few years I have received many. But I forget to use them. Or really I just don't go to the mall to shop all that often so they don't get used. But lately I have been using those puppies up. Because many expire after two or three years.



I bought these cuties at Marshalls last week from the super sale wall. $20. They are suede so not really in season but I love them anyway. Such a steal!





I walked past New York & Company (a store I have not been into in many years) and they had all this cute pink and green spring stuff in their display. Totally called to me. Some was not as cute up close but I fell in love with these shorts. They are green seersucker and less than $30. The fake but pretty earrings were on sale for $2.99. I will definitely try to remember to check out this oldie but goodie store again. They were just then putting out the pink and green stuff (boxes all over the place) and I have a feeling I might need another little preppy something before long.






I had a Gap gift card to use and found lots of cute gems there today. This fun grey jersey top, gold flops and this navy t-shirt-ish dress. Can you see the cute sleeves that roll up and snap? And the adorable belt. Super fun and very comfie. It and the top were on sale. Love.





I stuck my head into Payless because I have been having a good streak there lately and it was another winning day. The maroon flats are totally out of season at the moment but they were....wait for it, wait for it....$5! And the fun red ballet flats were on sale for $10. BUT WAIT...karma was totally on my side today. The woman in front of me turned around as she was leaving and handed me a 10% off coupon. So the bill came to less than $15. I actually do this ALL THE TIME when I know I won't get to use a coupon (mostly in fabric stores) but no one ever returns the favor. It was such a small gesture but I was totally excited.

So there you have it. I did not get the one item I ran in for but I think I was pretty successful otherwise. It is supposed to snow here tonight though. So no telling when I might get to wear any of my fun finds. Oh well...
