Mall Adventures: Part 1

Let me first apologize for not posting anything for the last few days. Life has been crazy introducing a new dog into the household (more blogs to follow on that).

Now let’s get this Sunday blogging party started with tales from mall shopping. I actually got to indulge in the girliest of all girl activities yesterday: A day at the mall with one of my BFFs Alexis. We shopped until we dropped, downed a cocktail, then shopped some more. One of the stores I fell in love with was a store called Fuego.

Now remember, I don’t get out much and I am a woman of my 30s now and not hip to where all of the girls of their 20s are shopping nowadays. Fuego may be known to most, but I had no clue what the store was.  Let me tell you one thing, after I shopped there I am hot for Fuego.

First up was the clearance rack. Ever since this gal got on a budget I have a rule that I don’t buy anything that is a “want” instead of a “need” unless it is on clearance.  Here are a couple of cute necklaces I found!

Thought, It has a few scratches in the paint, this green locket was a real find! Retail price:  $12.80 Clearance price:  $3.20

I also found some adorable stuff that I couldn’t justify spending the money on but I still want to share with you all!

I love my Orville, but that cat loves to hate me at times.  This book looks clever and even the kitty looks like my little Orville.

Adventures In Clearance Shopping: T.J. Maxx Edition

Howdy all!  I am trying to post more often to this blog so bare with me.  Some posts are going to be works of genius, but this isn’t one of them.  This post is a simple one.  A post about a girl who decided to do some spontaneous clearance shopping at one of my favorite stores:  T.J. Maxx.

There are definitely some pros and cons to clearance shopping.  Con:  Clearance shopping takes a lot of time and effort.  Pro:  You can find some GREAT deals and save some serious cash.  I happened to find two GREAT deals on my venture to T.J. Maxx in clearanceland that I would love to share with you all!

The first was a blue and black checkered number.  ImageWhat girl doesn’t need a Cosby sweater?  I can pair it with my skinny jeans that currently don’t fit at the moment (damn carbs) or my hypothetical black jeans that I don’t even own.  IMAG0527It really doesn’t matter if I don’t have pants to wear with it because I got it for…wait for it…on clearance for  $3.00. Yes please!

My next purchase came at the end of my shopping trip.  I happened upon a last chance clearance rack which looked very much “rode hard and put away wet” (if you catch my drift…wink...wink).  IMAG0525_1Buried in this ravaged rack of clothes was my best find in ages:  an adorable sweater dress.  Though a tad too short for me and my derriere to wear as a simple dress, I could still rock it as a top with the aforementioned ill fitting skinny jeans.  The price you ask?  A very affordable dollar.  One dollar!!!  Now that is one heck of a steal.

Once again, thank you so much for stopping by and please feel free to share any amazing deals you have found when clearance shopping/thrift store shopping/couponing, etc.!
