Shopping Finds

On Tuesday, I decided at the last minute to take a quick trip to Bowling Green to do some shopping. I wanted a suit for a Very Important Appointment on Wednesday evening (more details on that later). Although I have a mall, TJ Maxx, and Kohl's in my little town, Bowling Green's mall is bigger and has a Macy's and a Dillard's. BG also has Talbot's and Chico's, so I knew that my shopping choices would be much bigger in the big BG. I also like the TJ Maxx and Kohl's a little better-bigger stores and better selections. So with Mr. P working late, I headed south after finishing my day at school. I started out at TJ Maxx, and worked my way through every store listed above, and ended up back at TJ Maxx, where I found the perfect suit. In the course of my shopping escapades, I found some great things and saved some major $$!

Green Polo shirt:

Regular Price $60.00, sale price $24.00

Jones New York plaid shorts to match:

Regular Price $49.99, on sale for $14.99

Jones New York suit:

(This isn't the exact suit I bought, but it was the closest image I could find. I forgot to take a picture of my suit before I wore it last night, and now it is all wrinkled. The joys of a linen suit! My suit has a round collar and is navy. I absolutely love it-it is so "me". )

Regular Price $280.00, on sale for $39.99

Value of Clothes: $389.99
Total at Checkout: $84.77
Minus $25.00 Gift Card=$59.77-yeah!

Next stop, Kohl's. I didn't really find anything there (surprising, I know), but I had some Kohl's cash that I needed to spend, so I bought a new bra (I'll spare you a pic of that!).

Regular Price: $32.00
Sale Price: $22.00
Total at Checkout: $23.32
Minus Kohl's Cash=$3.32-I like that!

I also bought new ink cartriges and stocked up on hair spray, but I won't bore you with the details of those. So in conclusion, I came home with a shirt, pair of shorts, dress suit, bra, ink cartriges, and 3 cans of hair spray, all for a little over $100. Oh, and I couldn't resist these little cuties in the checkout line at Staples...

Given my affinity for school/office supplies, the fact that they are pink, and the pink ribbon...there was no way to resist these!
