It is so good to be back! I haven't had a chance to post or to check most of your blogs since we've returned from our holiday travels, but I look forward to catching up in the next couple of days! I want to share photos from our celebrations but need another day or two to get them sorted out. In the meantime, I wanted to tell you about a fabulous bargain-hunters' dream from the past weekend:
Dollar Dime Day! My favorite local consignment store clears out their entire inventory twice a year during the course of a week. Monday through Thursday, all items are half-off. On Friday, the discount jumps to 75%. Not too shabby. But the real deals come on Saturday: anything that is priced less than $4 becomes a DIME, and anything over $4 becomes a dollar. Wahoo!
You can imagine the scene. Crowds of people, ransacked racks, packed dressing rooms. I had a blast! For my son, I snatched up 3 cute long-sleeve shirts for 10 cents apiece, and paid a dollar each for a denim jacket and nice sweater. I even bought a couple of gifts at the deeply discounted prices, and a couple of nice sweaters for myself. My favorite find of the day was a barely-worn pair of navy Dockers for my husband. The prices can't be beat! Adding up the totals at the check-out counter was made even more fun when I discovered I had a solid amount of credit from clothes I had sold at the shop. Gotta love cash back!
Anyone else have a local sale event that's hard to pass up? What do you do with clothes you've outgrown or no longer want?
