Okay, I realize it might just be me, because I am notoriously cheap when it comes to clothes, but some of these bargain hunting segments on TV are a laugh! A few days ago I was watching the TODAY show and they had a segment on regarding "frugal" clothes shopping and how to "shop the discount stores". You know that's my thing, so I was all ears (and eyes).

I do not want to sound like a discount shopping party pooper - again maybe it is just me - but is one outfit for a little under $500.00 a bargain? I get it - the original outfit was several hundred dollars more, so it is a savings - but to call it a bargain?!?! I don't think so. I've said it before - I'll say it again, a bargain is when you purchase something for significantly less than its true value or worth.
Shout out to my 6 year old who took this picture!
Striped Blazer $4.99, Beatles Tee - $7.99. Faux Bakelite Jewelry - %8.99 , Old Navy Jeans %10.00, zebra flats $0.00 Total $31.97 (Also, I would like to add, with the exception of my blazer - all were NEW!)
So its not Sarah Jessica Parker, but for a day running around with the kids - not so bad!
