If you had a spare $10 in your pocket, what would you do with it? Buy a coffee and a snack? Get lunch? Anyone that knows me knows I love a good deal. And I can sure make $10 stretch if I have to. And anyone that knows me also knows that I love Salvation Army. They have deals every week that whatever color tag they choose is 50% off that item, or 5 for $5. Today I got super lucky and found 10 items at I love all in the color tag that was on sale! I got 10 pieces of clothing for $10! I added up all of the original prices on the tags if they were not 5/$5, and I would have spent $75 on all of these things. And while that is still a good deal for 10 items, $10 is a WAY better deal!! My husband rolls his eyes when I come home with these good deals. To a guy is probably a funny thing, but my fellow bargain shoppers know how much more fun it is to come home with multiple items rather than one or two expensive items. Will I be wearing these items to an event? Of course not, but for a mom who is home with kids every day, these are the perfect items for me. They may have been somebody else’s before mine but they are in perfect condition.
Of the 10 items I found were: Hollister jeans (I don’t try things on when I buy from Salvation Army especially when things are $1 each, but these jeans fit surprisingly well!), American Eagle jeans, an Aeropostale plaid shirt (I have never gotten into this trend but I do like how they looked tied around my waist, I am a very plain jane when it comes to dressing. I like solid colors), A maternity pink sequined sweater (yes I said maternity! It definitely didn’t fit like maternity, it was just much longer which will be great to wear with leggings on a cold day), a Forever 21 t-shirt, a Columbia pink pullover, an American Eagle white shirt with pretty cool back, an H&M 3/4 button up, and an Old Navy owl sweater. Notice a lot of the things I found are well-known brands! Now that my oldest is in school all day ( that’s a whole other blog post! Stay tuned) it is so much easier for me to browse stores with just the little one. This could be very dangerous at times but today it came in handy. As I have said in posts before if you are usually not a bargain shopper or scared of the manyyyy racks at Salvation Army, if you have an hour free give it a go! You might find your next favorite clothing item there. Happy shopping!!
