Hello Friends and Happy Saturday

Last week after leaving The Chasing the Dream Marketplace I had to drive past The Salvation Army Family Store in Wilmington so I decided to stop in.  I was looking for a denim vest and after about 30 minutes of searching I found one for $1.99 #winning!

On Friday I had the pleasure of spending the day with my girlfriend, her mother and her daughter, 3 generations on a mission to thrift 2 outfits for less than $10.00 each from The Salvation Army Family Store.  Driving north in the drizzling rain to Wilmington in anticipation of thrifting was a great way to start my vacation day.

The layout of The Salvation Army Family Store made it easy to maneuver the shopping carts throughout the floor and in between the racks, making it easier to locate bargains.  We started at the front racks, filled with skirts, blazers, pants and tops organized by color and then worked our way back to the dresses, finding both casual and dressier attire.

The price points for clothing at The Salvation Army Family Store is higher than that of Goodwill but there are still bargains to be had.  I found a pair of new, white Liz Claiborne jeans for $4.99, a perfect wardrobe addition for the summer! The “color of the day” was pink, which meant 50% off all clothing and shoes with a pink tag, and we each found at least one pink tag item.

The shoe racks were filled with a variety including Anne Klein, Steve Madden and Nine West pumps, Merrell Ortholite, Skechers and Enzo Angioline sandals, which I purchased, a little pricey at $14.99, but still a bargain because they can originally sell for $59.00.

Thrifting with the 3 generations of ladies at The Salvation Army Family Store was enjoyable as well as satisfying knowing that our purchases would be helping the Adult Rehabilitation Program.  The Salvation Army’s mission is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and it was refreshing to hear the overhead announcement, “Welcome to The Salvation Army Family Store…Have a Blessed Day”

Clothing is not all you’ll find!

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday, I hope you are having a fun filled day.

It was so nice to wake up to bright sunshine but we are expecting more snow this evening so I did my weekly grocery shopping this morning.  Shopped groceries for the week as well as goodies for Superbowl Sunday.  Safeway is my favorite store for deals, for example, DiGiorno Pizza is on sale for $3.88 each and can be coupled with a “J4U”, Buy 2 Get 1 Free coupon.  Taking advantage of that special and then using a Buy 2 Get 1 Free manufacturer’s coupon I paid .75 cents for two pizzas!

Safeway’s “Just 4U” app allows me to download coupons directly from my Smartphone or IPad onto my card and they offer savings for every $75.00 spent, you get a $10 Rewards Coupon.  Safeway is now also offering Gas Rewards to Exxon and Mobile and I have enough points to save .40 cent off per gallon, which is definitely a huge savings for me!

Saving money shopping the sales at Safeway was a great way to start my Saturday – now bring on the snow and GO RAVENS!!!

I didn’t wear these shoes to grocery shop but am continuing my support of  the GoRedForWomen Campaign this month.
