When shopping I try to buy wisely and not just throw my money away.
So I challenged myself recently while out shopping with two teenagers to only spend $40.00 and see how much I could come away with(Good quality items)
I wanted to show the kids the difference between their spending of MY money and MY spending of MY money.
I think seeing is believing and I want them to understand the value of a dollar.
One thing I DON'T do is JUST buy it because it's on sale. NO! I have to really love the item and would have wanted it rather it was on SALE or NOT. I don't buy just for the sake of a SALE. Besides we all know what a SALE is right? Most generally they mark it WAY up and then CLEARANCE it.
So after spending time at the MALL and $160.00 later...which for what they got was PRETTY good considering I had a few things in there too for my other son; we HEADED to my kind of SHOPPING!
DISCOUNT shopping! I found this amazing place called ROSE'S that is a mecca for PINCHING pennies...
I bought myself an entire outfit... and I've been wanting to try the colored skinny jeans!
Love a cardigan esp when it's kelly Green!
Yellow Skinny Jeans:: $17.50, Multi-colored Blouse::$6.00::Green Cardigan::$7.50::Shoes::$5.95::Bracelet::.$.99
With Tax I think it's around $40.43 Cents! but an entire outfit including the Shoes!
SOCKS NOT ADDED: they were .99cents and I didn't buy them to go with this outfit!
