Retail Therapy

When my friend came to visit a few weekends ago, the weather was we decided to do a little shopping to cheer us up. We went to Banana Republic, which I love, but think most items are a tad overpriced. Fortunately, they were having an extra 40% off all sale items before 1pm. It was a close one considering we finally got through the giant line to the register at 12:55! I would have easily put everything back though if we wouldn't have gotten the extra 40% off, which I felt pretty good about.

I didn't buy much, but I did save a lot! I bought a nice gray shirt for work, a fun flowy sleeveless shirt for summer, and a 2nd pair (but different color) of gray pants for work (I have the same style but in navy blue and I love them!)

Spent $52.18
Retail $144

Weekly Savings: Free is Better!

Our regular shopping deals haven't been that great lately. So boring, in fact, that I didn't even take a picture! We spent $50 at Dominick's and saved $31...not too great. On the other hand, I ran into Jewel this week to "buy" a few things that ended up being free after coupons. I bought 6 boxes of pasta, 8 Fuze drinks, and 2 Propel drinks.

Spent: $0.75 ( in seventy-five cents!)

Saved $29.99!!!!

I also swung by Target and paid $1.99 (plus tax) for the items pictured below! Not a bad week!

Weekly Savings: Everything for Free!

This week was a bit hectic again...we had friends in town last weekend so we didn't really do any shopping, then we had more friends in town this weekend so again, we didn't have time to do much shopping. I had a few "Free" coupons for various items that were expiring soon, plus a B1G1 free coupon (that I paired with a B1G1 free sale), so I got everything below for free! Just paid tax!
