I like to think of myself as a savvy shopper. Unless there is something I absolutely have to have for something I will never pay full price for any article of clothing. I love sales! But there are times that even sales are not enough. There are several stores that I look over their “sale” items and only peruse the clearance racks. I live for the clearance racks. Especially once it was my own money I was having to use on clothes (sorry Mom and Dad…) I became a champion of the clearance. My biggest score to date would still be the 13 sweaters I purchased for $1.35 a piece at Old Navy. (Their clearance used to be more impressive. Now you have to catch them at the right times..)
I still love to hunt for deals. Today’s adventure found us at Kohls. (I LOVE the Kohl’s clearance racks!) Again, not quite what they used to be, but I can almost always find something amazing for next to nothing. After a ho-him experience in the juniors clearance section, and being told by my mother that I might be getting to old for that area (thanks Mom… ), i moves my search operation over to the women’s clearance. And then I let the world know what a disappointment it was. A bunch of grandma looking clothes, and when I did find something promising it was $12-25! Are you kidding me?! That’s not clearance people!!!! Ugh!!!! I did manage to find a few pieces, including a dress style that I loved (so I bought it in three colors), and a romper that my mom made snarky comments about then had to eat her words because it was ADORABLE.
Fast-forward to the check-out. I had 8 items, a 30% off coupon, a 10 dollars off for every 50 dollars spent, and 20 dollars in Kohl’s cash. (I also found a garment flaw which garnered me another 10% off that item’s price.) I was ready for battle.
The tags were scanned. The items bagged. I was again victorious. Total saved: $451 and change. Total spent: $35 and change. Boom-shaka-laka! I was so proud of myself. 🙂
