I just saved a bunch of money...and NOT by switching to Geico!

I'm so excited! And it's really sad that this is all it takes to excite me.

I got an email from gap.com with a promo code for free shipping. This alone is very cool. That's a savings of at least $6 on my order.

So, I went to the site and looked at clearance kids clothes (NEVER buy full price GAP kids clothes, ever), but they mostly had winter clothes and the summer clothes they did have are still overpriced. Bummer. But my kids have tons of clothes anyways.

I went to the women's site...JACKPOT!! They have tons of jeans, blazers, skirts, dress shirts and t-shirts on clearance right now. Some really great bargains. Unfortunately, my free shipping is only good for two days, and even more unfortunately, we don't get paid until Friday.

So, no jeans or skirts or blazers.

But...BUT...

I found these cute, colorful t-shirts on sale for $5. That's a good price anywhere. And GAP/Old Navy t-shirts are the softest, comfiest shirts around.



The shirts are marked down from $20! Woohoo!

I added it up, and I saved around $50 on my purchase...only spent about 15 bucks. How awesome is that? I got three shirts for less than what one would have cost me full price!

Ok, ok, this is a silly thing to be so happy about, but geez, I LOVE clearance sales! And I love me some soft, light-weight t-shirts!

Woo-freakin-hoo!

So you'll have to model the T-shirt a la Gap once you get them.

Sales: Men - Will pay $2 for a $1 item that he needs.

Women: Will pay $5 for a $20 item that she does not need.

Congratulations on your good luck.

Do I have to cut the top of my head out of the picture, too?

Hahaha. Well, I did think long and hard about whether I needed them or not. And I do. Of course I do! Besides, $15! C'mon!

Congratulations on your good luck.


Why thank you!

Jill:
Soooo true!!


Hehe. Getting a good bargain is a thrill. It's like feeling the challenge and reward of a sport. And it's cheaper than golf or paintball!

R u kidding me?! Any day is good for a sale and be happy about it! I agree about never buying full price at the Gap, they always have great bargains plus their clothes fit so well. Thanks for the tip, I'm going to check them out!

Haha. Exactly!

I love the style of GAP clothes, and you're right...great fit! My boys only wear GAP jeans because they have those great elastic bands and buttons to adjust the waist...they can wear them so much longer that way!

And their sales are AWESOME! I've gotten t-shirts for the boys for 99 cents there before.

Thanks for the tip, I'm going to check them out!


You'll have to post a pic if you find something cute!

Very much like a few women I know well: "Look how much I saved by buying this thing that I wouldn't've bought had it not been on sale!"

Still, it is a good bargain.

That is TOTALLY sexy!! Pizza is the ultimate aphrodisiac, hehe.

(I like pizza as much as the TMNTs do!)

Hahahahhahaa...that's sure putting a negative spin on it!

Still, it is a good bargain.


I thought so. I love getting expensive stuff for cheap.

Meh. I just found a very nicely kept secondhand sports jacket (VERY hard to find in my size) for $6 (normal retail for sports jackets is about $200), so there!

LOL

That's my girl! Spoken like a true bargain shopper!

If you guys have time left in service when you get orders out of Hawaii, I'm going to be rooting for you to get stationed at Ft Leonard Wood. I live about 2 hours away from there...we could go bargain hunting together!

Ha! I can beat that!

I got a leather blazer from the thrift store for $2 once, and this past summer I got brand new Gap jeans for my boys for $1 a pair at a yard sale.

I'm the veritable queen of bargain shopping on my street!
