I was a bargain shopper way before it become chic and cool.
Mostly made chic and cool because of the horrible economy.
This makes me chic and cool way before we were poor.
Which I think is the ultimate chic and cool.
I have been a bargain shopper since my high school days.
It’s something about the thrill of not paying retail.
I’m the person who goes directly to the back of the store to the clearance racks and never even really looks at the mannequins in the window as I know I can’t afford it. And if I could, I would never pay retail.
Part of is the thrill of the find. The other part is saving money.
Look at what I scored for Scary Baby in February.
Yes, that’s right. 5 new articles of clothing ~ a hoodie, matching pants, a top and two sweaters. The very cute brown velour hoodie and matching pants were $2.99 each! Woo hoo!
Side note: Pictures of the aforementioned items would have been chic and cool. I was so busy scanning the receipts I obviously didn’t think about the actual clothes.
So glad I was shopping for new dress pants for myself. That’s why I ended up with 5 new sweaters and a top. Because you have to be flexible when bargain shopping.
Fortunately, I’m very flexible. 😉
I do so love a store that doesn’t make me do that math.
According to Belk, I SAVED a grand total of $336.51.
Come back Wednesday to find out what I could do with all my savings!!
Until then, leave a comment and tell me about your best bargain score. What’s the best bargain you ever found while shopping? (Doesn’t have to be clothes…)
