I’m by NO means a fashionista…quite the opposite, really. That said, I feel strange doing a post about anything clothing or personal accessory related. However, I just had to share this deal.
Yes, it was that good.
I was at the mall (shocking!) and decided to pop into Carson Pirie Scott. They have great clearance shoes and clothes deals called the Yellow Dot Sale. You might know them as Bergner’s or Bon Ton in your area.
Anyway, I had B-boy with me, which doesn’t lend itself to the best shopping experience. My plan was a quick swoop, attack and leave…most likely empty handed.
Passing through the jewelry section, I spotted a Yellow Dot sign on a large rack of pretty and shiny things. I had to check it out. Here’s what I found:
These versatile hoops marked down from $18 to $9.99 and with the Yellow Dot discount (an extra 50% off) they should be about $5.
Then I tried on this fun necklace marked down from $28 to $15.99. Add in the Yellow Dot bonus and they should run me about $8.
For $14 total, I figured that was quite a bargain for two new pieces. They both were very neutral and could go with lots of different outfits.
But Wait! There’s a surprise!
When the cashier rang up both items, she gave me a funny look when I told her I’d pay with my credit card.
I let out a big “HUH?” and she showed me her screen to verify that I wasn’t dreaming. She explained that the two Yellow Dot items I purchased had been on clearance SO long that they were actually marked down .99/each!!!
I did the happy dance, paid in cash (BIG spender!), grabbed my little one, put back the costume jewelry he was modeling and ran out of the store before they changed their minds on the price.
How about you? Any frugal finds out there that you can actually wear instead of hang on a wall?Pin It
