bargain buys

I’ve been converted. Thanks to Alex and low prices.

Just a few years ago I couldn’t be bothered with bin shopping or the countless hours (minutes in my case) you can spend going through a sales rack. I knew that there were buys out there to be had but I was one that liked to walk into a store, see a nice clothes display, and then find that specific item below the display.

Now I raid the shelves and racks of stores like TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Ross Dress For Less. They still have clothes displays near the front of the store with a few more name brands (which I enjoy), but the real deals come about near the back of the store.

Just yesterday I scored three shirts, one cardigan, and a fancy pair of capris all for $70 including tax. I was elated and very satisfied with my spring and summer time finds! So next time you start feeling the effects of the economy (i.e. everyday) but want to update your wardrobe, purse/shoe collection, kitchen appliances stop in at one of the stores I mentioned…there are good things there, great things.

The image above of the yellow cardigan is from jcrew.com. I have been eyeing that garment since late winter and instead of paying $59.50…I found an identical one from Anne Klein at TJ Maxx yesterday for $10.00, schwing!

    have you ever stopped to really ponder just how consumer rich our country is? i’ve been thinking a lot about how much we value just buying things & how from day one we are programmed to consume things & spend money.

    it’s something i’m beginning to try really hard to not ‘buy’ into.
