Hello Friends and Happy Fri-YAY!

The first day of March…another day the Lord hath made…the first weekend of the month…it’s all good in the neighborhood!

Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend?  Me not so much, going to Home Depot or Lowes with hubby in search of a replacement kitchen sink faucet, (finally stopping a water leak), then doing our income taxes – Woohoo lucky lucky me!

Well at least I had fun yesterday at The Money School’s Awards Luncheon where I met some great people including Governor Markell.  The Money School provides some wonderful free programs in the state and it was nice to see them recognize people who help in this effort, I can’t wait to post the details.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday, we’re on the down stroke to the weekend!

Yesterday after work I stopped for gas, paid $3.67/gallon, getting just enough to get home or to a cheaper station. This morning it was $3.69! It’s times like these that I miss living in New York and taking public transportation. Delaware has DART Bus service but I would rather drive than risk being hit over the head with a gun for a bite of sandwich – don’t believe me…it happened on Monday, read the article here

Do you ever drive around burning gas looking for cheaper gas – crazy right!  If I did commute to work on public transportation this Merona tote would be perfect to carry.  It’s not as though I have a lot but if I did, it’s very roomy.  It could also be used an an overnight bag, what do you think?

Animal Print booties were purchased last year on clearance at Deb Shop and the pantsuit is from the back of the closet – the shoulder pads dates it.  Worthington scoop neck top was $4 from JC Penney and Merona tote was part of my shoe haul from Target.

Hello Friends, I hope you are having a terrific Tuesday.

It appears as though everyone is back to work because the commute was slow and I drove even slower trying to save gas. Can you believe the prices, I last paid $3.65 for a gallon and it’s goes up a few cents every day.  How much is it in your area?

My commute is 100 miles round trip and it is definitely putting a dent in my wallet, so to save money I have vowed not to shop until April when the prices are supposed to drop. The economic recovery is no where near where it should be and these gas prices aren’t helping!  Before my self imposed shopping freeze I was able to snag two skirts from JC Penney’s for $5 each and am wearing one of them with a thrifted top and blazer.

Do you remember my previous post about the clearance sales at JC Penney?  Did you go?  If not, I suggest you go there as soon as you can.  Today I went back to return the $5 skirt and ended up getting 2 more, a Worthington black and white tweet and a pencil skirt; a patterned scoop neck top and a Comfort Revolution sports bra for a grand total of $12.00!

There are $3/$5/$10/$12 and $14 clearance racks in every department, men/women and children clothing, jewelry, accessories, shoes, purses, lingerie, housewares, etc.  If you need a last minute Valentine’s Day gift, get to the mall with a quickness  because you will definitely get more for your money!

These pics were taken when I stopped in last month.

Have fun shopping & saving!

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Can you believe it’s the last Thursday of the month, tomorrow is the first day of February. February 1st is also my “baby boy’s” Birthday and he will be 17 – somebody is getting old and it isn’t me!!!!
February, 1996, two days after he was born we were hit with a major snow storm that kept us house bound for almost a month. I hope that doesn’t happen again, the storm of 2010 was more than enough to last a lifetime – remember that one?

No snow storms in the forecast, just bright sunshine and high winds, but not like what tore through some southern states last night – we are truly blessed!

These blue suede booties are different than the one’s featured here.  They were purchased last year from The Shoe Dept, and also came in red which I didn’t get – wish I had because it would have saved me from going to the mall today.  By the way, have you been to JC Penney’s lately?  If not, GO, they have $1 ~ $3 ~ $5 and $10 clearance racks, I got a red skirt and a pair of capris for $5 each!  Their new “one price no sales” marketing campaign didn’t work out so well, and now they are restructuring, so head over for some great bargains.  The “housewives of Exton” were racking up on kids clothes on clearance for a dollar which are better deals than Goodwill!

Hello friends, I hope that you had a great weekend. I cannot believe that tomorrow is the first day of October…where did September go? The weekend was uneventful but I did clean out my closet and put away the summer shoes. It’s unbelievable that there were this many shoes in my closet!

I also removed a lot of clothes and next week will be at the Flea Market selling them for $1.00 a piece, anything not sold will be donated to Goodwill. I didn’t get a chance to post Thursday or Friday’s outfits so here they are.

Saturday night Malik went with a friend to a Homecoming Dance and was excited to be riding in a Mercedes, which belonged to Mike’s mother – I wish I had a Benz! I didn’t ask, but wonder if they coordinated their attire with the car – lol!

My co-worker knows that I love thrifting, she and I have even gone to Goodwill together during a lunch break.  She knows there is no shame in my game when it comes to thrifting clothes especially for my sons.  Last week she had a bag of clothes in her car that her son had outgrown, and asked if I wanted them.  I could sense she was a little hesitant with the offer because she followed up with,  “if you can’t use them, you can donate them to Goodwill”.   Of course, I said, “yes”.  Later in the day she put the bag into my car so I didn’t see the contents until I got home that evening.  This bag contained some great stuff for my son who will be starting back to school next week!

The shopping bag was filled with shirts, pants, shorts and jeans, all in excellent condition and smelling freshly laundered.  The name brand items included Old Navy, Banana Republic, Tommy Hilfiger, Nautica, JC Penney’s and The Gap.  My sons were thrilled with the haul and each went through the items designating which ones they wanted.  The pants fit nicely around the waist, but hubby will need to alter the length because my co-worker’s son stands 6 ‘ 8″, taller than anyone in my house!   This was my first FREE thrifted haul ever!!!
