My mom and I went shopping at bunches of places on Sunday, as is our weekly routine. My mom is awesome.... the greatest shopping buddy/source of encouragement/occupier of Jameson/anything else you could ever want. I convinced her to stop by Goodwill as our very last stop. J was worn out after a long day of shopping/couponing, and we were all kind of ready to get home. She turned into Goodwill and immediately J whines from the back, "I'm tiiiiiireddddd, I don't liiiiikkkeee thhhiiisss stttooorrreee." After promising frozen yogurt afterwards, J was down for a few minutes of shopping.... and I do mean a FEW minutes. We walked in and I went straight for the clearance racks. My eyes lit up with excitement when I spotted the greatest signs ever made .... there were gigantic signs on every clearance rack advertising $0.50 clothes! FIFTY CENT CLOTHES, PEOPLE! THIS IS HUGE! Of course, everything was mostly picked over, but I ended up getting $4 worth of stuff.... that's 8 items if you're keeping track. :]
Here are some of my awesome finds, which I brought home, sorted, and posted on eBay later that night:
This J. Crew tank is in perfect condition, and I listed it at $4.99 + shipping. It is still an active auction, but there are already five people "watching" the item.
This J. Jill sweater is still active, as well.
This Gap skirt ends tonight and already has 4 bids!
I got a few other things, including two Ralph Lauren polos for Adam, and a Crescent t-shirt for J. :]
I also went to Target this week, where I used my awesome $5 off any denim product to score FREE jeans that were clearanced to $4.98. Those are also listed on eBay. :]
The Target printable coupons from their website are sometimes amazing, and this week was THE week to print them! Not only did I score the $5 denim coupon, but I got lots of up&up brand coupons.
Here is a summary of my Target trip this week:
2 Mossimo Distressed Jeans: $4.98 x 2 = $9.96
1 up&up Bleach: $1.42
2 up&up toothbrushes: $1.22 x 2 = $2.44
1 up&up pantiliners: $0.89
Seventh Generation dish detergent: $2.69
2 up&up Pain Reliever 24 ct.: .99 x 2 = $1.98
4 Tide Stain Release: $3.48 [on clearance] x 4 = 13.92
Total before coupons: $33.30
I used the following coupons:
2 $5/1 Target Denim
$1 off any up&up cleaning product
2 $1 off any up&up oral care
$0.75 any up&up feminine product
$1/1 Seventh Generation product [Target q]
$1/1 Seventh Generation product [printable from SG website]
2 $1/1 up&up pain reliver
4 $3/1 Tide Stain Release, 2/27 P&G
Total after coupons: $3.55
The lady in line behind me said, "WHOA, can you teach me how to do that?! You're a professional! Where did you get all those coupons?!" while the cashier called over another employee to show her my receipt. I love it when this happens, although it embarasses Adam to death.
Regardless, I am a thrifty saving mama. I guess I would call myself somewhat of a professional.... after all, I DO blog about it, right? :]
I have lots and lots of items still listed on eBay right now, so I'll wait until they end to post my weekly totals there.
Until then, xoxo....
