My Mother Taught Me Well!


We went back-to-school shopping and got some great deals! ($272 worth for only$106). I found a $30 shirt for Marinne and paid only $1.97! I love finding a good deal! I am constantly telling Ray how much money I SAVE him, and reminding him what a thrifty wife I am. I can't claim all the credit, because I was raised by the Queen of Bargain Shopping, and trained to go straight to the clearance racks to find the sales. I have a hard time paying full price for anything. Maybe we're nerds, but when I was growing up, my mom and I would add up all of the original prices on things we bought, and figure out how much money we had saved. Maybe I'm just a cheap-skate, but even when I'm really rich... I'll be looking for those red tags!

I saved today as well. Spent $50 at Van's & got 4 pairs of shoes. Saved about $70. I spent $18 at Bath 'n' Body on buying 6 of my beloved foot cream & saved $72! They were $3 compared to the norm of $15. WOOHOO!!

Way to Go. I love finding good deals as well. We start at the clearance rack and work our way out. Now that my kids are getting bigger they are becoming a bit more picky. I am glad they get the more for your money concept and at least look for sales on their favorite brands of clothes.

Yeah for sales. I will never get the cheap skate out of me. I did all of our school shopping on line and it was awesome. We never left home and I got free shipping and everything on clearance. I got about 6 complete outfits and shoes for three kids for only $230. Not too bad. I highly recommend it.
