Keeping up with the latest trends doesn’t have to break the bank. I’m living PROOF! I used to be a spendthrift in my younger years. Now that I’m married and a mother of 3, I’ve learned to shop smart. Don’t get me wrong, I love designer brands, but I have a hard time justifying a $500 purse or $150 pair of jeans. I just can’t bring myself to do it. I’m a bargain shopper and finding deals and steals is my forte!
So last week, while shopping around for a swimsuit, I came across a few summer pieces that I couldn’t pass up. I didn’t find what I was looking for so I continued to browse around throughout the store. I found a floral bustier top at Ross for $9.99. It features a zipper down the middle and subtly flairs out towards the bottom. It’s floral print and vibrant bold colors caught my eye. Perfect for a summer day or tropical getaway!
After finding only one item at Ross, I decided to hit the next store over. Literally within walking distance was Marshalls. I love that store! They have everything from clothes, to shoes, to home décor. They offer 20-60% off department store prices just like Ross. I wasn’t looking for anything specific, but then I saw the cutest white shorts that I knew I just had to buy for $12.99! They are rayon and nylon material with lace trim around the edges. They are very stretchy and comfortable. It matched perfectly with my floral print bustier top!
It was a win, win today considering I found an outfit for $20! But, it didn’t stop there- well…. I intended to, but I had to make a quick stop at Target and we all know how that turns out! While perusing through the isles, I stopped at the shoe section. I found a pair of coral wedges on clearance for $5.99! Can you believe that? I never get that lucky on shoes! Now that’s a deal of a lifetime. Not only did I find them on sale for a great bargain, but they had my size too! The strings wrap around the ankle and tie up for a sexy, stylish look.
Overall, I spent $28.97 on a top, bottoms and shoes! And that my friends, is how you bargain shop!
