Oh, how I L-O-V-E a Bargain!!

I (twin 1) work 4 days a weeks and have Fridays off. So when hubby's are working and the children are in school twin 2 and I usually do what we love most SHOP! Some times we will hit a couple of Home Goods stores and load up or go to the mall. Well, we have been really good lately and have just been spending the time together and not shopping until....My bosses gave me a gift certificate to Kohl's and we just HAD to go. I got a really nice sweater and dress pants and then we decided to go to the mall.

We went to Bergner's because they had a Good Will sale going on. Well, I hit pay dirt. I got all you see in the picture above plus a couple of summer tops I have packed away already for.......Are you ready for this!!!!! $136.31 Not including tax!! If I would of paid the original prices for each piece it would of came to $528.92. I think I did great. There's 8 jackets there, a pair of dress pants, 2 sweaters 6 long t-shirt shirts to put under sweaters and stuff. I got 18 pieces all together. I HATE winter for I am always cold so I have to layer.

Fran picked out this sweater. It was the most expensive at $19.97 and it was originally $44.00.

I've been looking for a red sweater and I loved this one. Was $40.00 but I got it for $17.92.

I had Good Will coupons (20% off) and since I had not used my credit card in so long it was no long on file so I opened a new one and got another 20% off. I tried to take a picture of my receipt but it wouldn't work.
I have been cleaning out my closet all day! Oh, how I LOVE to shop but I love a BARGAIN even better : o)

Oh, my goodness, talk about knowing how to shop! You go, girl !
I can't believe all those nice pieces for less than $200 bucks...FABULOUS. AND, I would arm wrestle you for that red sweater if we were closer!! heh heh.....

You got some beautiful things. How fun to shop with sissy! I love it! Is this the same Goodwill that we have here in Oregon? Or is it Good Will and a different company? Ours is a thrift store where people donate. Eveyrthing is used. Our prices are way cheaper than that. You pay $3.99 for a sweat and $2.99 for a t-shirt.

Have a great weekend!

i love those kind of shopping trips. I had a few and it is so fun to tally up what a great deal you got. I love adding up the price of a new outfit to find that I only spent $50 on something that could have cost $200. Some of my very favorite garments were super bargains.
