Good deals

Today I went out with Rebekka again and we did some shopping. Since I'm such a tight wad when it comes to spending my own money I usually just end up getting one or two things around 10-ish dollars each, if that. I don't like parting with my money over clothes... as odd as it sounds as a girl to say that.

Anyways, we set out to hit some awesome sales. My friend Ellen told me that Target was having a 70% clearance, and she bought a sweater there for $5, so that was the first place Rebekka and I went. Sadly, by the time we got there most of the sale had already been picked over, but I managed to score a pair of jeans for $6 and a new pair of mocassins for $6 as well.

I was kind of dissappointed that I didn't find any sweaters, so we headed to Kholes, which was a HUGE dissappointment, so we left immediately and headed for our favorite thrift shop where I bought a men's wool sweater. It's very hipster chic. (I would post a picture, but it's late.)

Upon my suggestion we also decided to go to Old Navy to see if they had anything. Lucky us, they were liquidating their stock because they were moving locations so everything.... let me emphasize EVERYTHING with a red sticker was $2.47 or less. Needless to say I am sweatered up. They're all wool, meaning that I can't machine wash them, but nbd, I have to handwash some of my clothes anyways, and in college I'll have a sink in my room, so it shouldn't be too bad.

Speaking of my college, I'll be flying up there in February for scholarship interviews!!! I'm really excited to finally visit. Sadly, I'm using money that I had saved up for summer stuff. I'm paying for my dad and I's plane tickets and hotel room so it'll be approximately $1,000, but I feel like now that I'm 18 I need to be able to start paying for stuff myself.

I don't know. I just feel less guilty about stuff in general if I pay for it myself. The only downside to this is being out $1,000. I mean, I have more saved up, but I wasn't planning on touching it until after college, or for an emergency or something. Oh well.

I honestly should be designing stuff right now, or writing my APES research paper... Eh, I'll get to it tomorrow.


  1. Wow you have a lot of savings. You've done good to do that. I know how you feel about wanting to pay for everything though. You got some great deals there.

  2. Rebekka told me about that! I was totally going to go but then I had to work. :/ Whatevs, right? I'm glad you got some good deals!


  3. Well, I need to go to Target anyway...

    It's always exhilarating to find good deals. At least for us, frugal folks, I suppose. (Frugal folks...that should be a band. Watch, it already is and I sound like an idiot.)

    I've been trying to save up as much as I can. I didn't even go to Islands of Adventures with friends to save the $85 + tax. Probably one of the best decisions, though.

  4. Those deals sound wonderful. I'm so jealous right now, because finding cheap, nice clothes, is, as mentioned above, always exhilarating. I love it!! I don't own a lot of sweaters though. My tendency to layer anything and everything sort of leaves them useless when they cover up all my other shirts.

    At least you have savings. I feel as if I have nothing right now, and it rather worries me. :/
