I say new because we can often find used deals at Goodwill or thrifting, but shopping new and finding good clearance is getting harder and harder to unearth. Especially when clearance is quickly becoming to go to place to shop. I mean really, who needs retail pricing, am I right!!
For fun, I occasionally roam around Bed Bath and Beyond to marvel over all their completely useless crap, wonder who would ever buy it, and how long it would be before the novelty of them actually buying it wore off. On this jaunt, I came a cross a clearance shelf in their baking section. I had just had a tough battle with a 'dough kneader', and decided not to invest in the $8 gadget.
All total pieces were $11. I was thrilled. I filled gaps in my baking arsenal, and I did it with a quality product. That's a bargain!!
My next bargin came just last night. I was stopping in the grocery to grab some much, much need catlitter for Brasco, when I decided first to stop up at the shoe place. I do love me a good pair of shoes.
I hate their skank ho heels and their boots all look so Beyond Thunderdome, so I tend to gravitate toward the sneakers. Well, as luck would have it, they were having a sale on Keds.
I had just looked a few days earlier for Keds on Zappos. They wanted $45 for their basic canvas kicks. Ouch, Zappos. These were priced at $40 and 50% off. What!? $20 Keds!? That's a bargain!
Out of the pairs they had that I thought were classic enough, I decided to get a black velvet pair and a plaid pair. These will be great kick around shoes, replacing a pair of old sneaks I should have retired a long time ago. Mmmm, bargains.
So that's it. Good shoes and good glass bake wear. I'm a simple girl.
Have a great day!!
