Shopping Savings

As you may know from previous posts , I love a good deal ~ especially from one of my local thrift shops (an example of this is here and here).

 However, a good deal is even better when it comes brand new from a department store! So, you can imagine my delight when during a recent shopping outing, I found savings at both! :)

This sheet set looks and feels absolutely brand new! It originally came from JCPenney's. It's a very good quality, durable set that I found for just $10 at the thrift store. I was so happy that not only was it a great price, but also a style that I really love. There's just something about roses and an old fashioned look that really appeals to me!

While at the same thrift shop, I also went to the towel section as we've really been needing to replace some of ours. Another fantastic find from JCPenney's.....
And again, there's that old fashioned look (and quality) that I love!! This towel and pair of washcloths cost me just $8 ~ a fraction of what a new, thick shower towel and set of washcloths would cost. I was tickled pink to come across these!

Here's a picture of my dining room curtains (another day's thrift store find from shortly after we moved in ~ lol!), but my recent shopping trip landed me this beautiful maroon valance that filled in the awkward, empty space between the two panels on the rod. Just $2, and I love it's silky, flowing material that ripples so nicely as it hangs!
It really completed the entire look of the window so well, and picks up some of the maroon in the flowers on the panels, which can be seen better in person.

Since this winter has been so cold, lately I've been more inclined to pull on something comfy, cozy and very warm (a.k.a Dean's long john shirts!!) instead of anything that looks pretty or feminine! So, I decided it was time to look for some warm and cozy things of my own.....
This $3 sweater is absolutely the softest sweater I have ever owned. Not only is it soft, but thick, and that makes it extra warm and cozy!! Purple is also one of my favorite colors. ;) 

While horizontal stripes are not my favorite on a shirt, I decided that this shirt was worth getting because it originally came from Kohl's, has surely never been worn, and is definitely quality made! There are some things that you can just tell, from the moment you feel it and try it on....Hey, for $2 I'm game to wear horizontal stripes on a shirt every now and then! And despite how wide this picture makes the shirt look (see, that's why I don't usually wear stripes!) it actually fits quite nicely when my body fills it out. :)

Last, but certainly not least, I needed to make a stop in to my local Kmart, and was pleasantly surprised to find that they had 70-80% off some of the women's clothing. Upon further inspection, I saw that most of it was autumn or Christmas related, but after some careful searching, I was able to find 2 things that paired nicely together, yet didn't scream Christmas! 
Not only do I love the fuzzy interior of the sweatshirt, it's color and the bird design, but I couldn't believe that I was getting it for a steal!! Just under $3, when it was originally marked for something around $20 I believe! I love wearing a turtle neck under a sweatshirt, so when I found this cream one with the gold flakes, which match the gold in the birds' wings, I was delighted. The turtleneck cost me a whopping $2.40, marked down from $12.

Oooo, how I love to find bargains! If you care to take the time to look, there's always a good deal to be found. More and more I find that others are bargain hunting, too. These days it only makes sense!
Are you a bargain shopper?
