I'm always looking for a deal. And the best deal out there is FREE, as witnessed by the coupon I found for shipping on my recent Victoria's Secret splurge. Some things you just can't be cheap about! For the most part, I scour the stores looking for items I need/want for the best possible price. This includes anything from household products and groceries to clothing and shoes. If the price isn't right I won't buy it. It doesn't matter if I have a few extra bucks burning a hole in my pocket, or if someone sends me gift cards to frivolously spend on indulging myself; my cheapskate radar is always on.
Evidence of my recent cheapness can be found in my closet. Let's take a look, shall we?
A shopping trip right before Christmas uncovered these cute Union Bay pants at Khols: $8
The New Year's Day shopping trip rewarded me with this adorable black sweater at Macy's: $12.90
I tell you I really am the Queen of Cheap*! Just look at my slippers if you don't believe me.
My poor comfy, warm bootie slippers are dying a slow painful death. But I've remedied that! Packing tape to the rescue!! If I could have found my duct tape I would have certainly used it, but alas the old standby was available.
Why do I stoop to such levels of cheapness? I'll tell you. Replacement of my $20 purchase two years ago of my favorite comfy, warm bootie slippers can only be remedied if I am willing to part with $60-70 of my hard earned money.
*Royal tiara not included because I priced them.....and they cost too much.
