Thrifty Thursday!

This is not normally something I post about but I went to my favorite store today--Maurice's. If you do not have a Maurice's near you, check them out at maurices.com (Disclaimer----This is my own personal opinion--I'm receiving nothing for posting about my shopping experience today!)

Anyhoo... received an email from them today that new stuff was added to their 75% off sale (off already reduced prices by the way), so I said well I have a gift card, I'll go check it out! Oh wow....I racked up.

Here are a few of my purchases (the lighting is terrible because it's my phone and in my bedroom so ugh).

A cute lacy top.

Two cardigans. The right one is NOT orange..it's like coral I guess. That darn lighting again.

Just a cute shirt and there is a pair of white Capri's underneath. 

Two coats and a blazer. The middle coat is reversible! (The two coats on the left--both originally $49.99--I paid $10 bucks for each!--the blazer I paid $6.75 for!)

                                                       And this cute dress.


Basically..it all rang up to be $66 dollars and some change. I had a $50 gift card...so I paid $16 out of my pocket. I SAVED...

wait for it........







$231!!!! 

Hahahaha....even my dog is smiling about it!!!



I fell over...so I called my IA (instructional assistant and some other friends and I think they are all going tomorrow!!)
