Yesterday, I saved $1221 dollars. (Yes, I know it’s redundant to write out “dollars” AND post the dollar sign, but dangit, I SAVED $1221 DOLLARS!)
This is only part of the $1221.00 I saved. You can see the $18 salmon-pink dress made of really stretchy material, which some of us need. You can see two or three $5 sweaters (did I mention they were only FIVE DOLLARS APIECE????). You can see bits and pieces of my stack of $8 bras (I wear a weird size, so when I find them on sale, I tend to hoard).
Oh–and I got some pants and shorts for the boys. Because, you know, we were back-to-school shopping.
I love this store. It’s clean and bright, and unlike my home, all the clothes are hung neatly. It’s only three miles from my house, so I could walk there if I have to (but I don’t. Did I mention that we brought home five bags of…um…school clothes?) The staff is friendly, kind and welcoming. I say, “Hey, I forgot my 15 percent off coupon,” and they say, “No problem. Have the discount anyway!”
“You need this dress,” I tell her.
“Sure. It’s only twelve bucks.”
“I dunno. I think it would look better on you.”
“Why don’t you get the lavender one and I’ll get the pink?”
…And so it goes. And $400 later (but ONLY $400 later) I have saved $1221 dollar bucks.
I collapse on the couch in bliss, not caring if I wrinkle my new Sheldon “Bazinga” t-shirt, because, hey–it was only $1.40 after discount.
Oh–wait. That one belongs to my son
