  • Just last week @ Target in the Easter section that was 90% off I got tins of disney princess playing cards or 50 piece puzzles for 50 cents! I usually score my deals at Kohl's.

  • Girl let me tell you! Last year we were shoe shopping for the kids,it was fall so the summer shoes were going on sale! I found the last pair of these totally cute brown sandals that had all kinds of indian style looking beads on them. At regular price they were $45.00, I got them for $3.00 and every time I wear them people want even some men want to know where I got them because they are so unusual looking!

  • I got an Adidas hoodie for $2. It was marked $22 but when the cashier rang it up he was like this is odd and I was like huh and he said the total is $2 and then he goes well I guess the cash register doesn't lie and so he let me have it for $2!

  • We have a really nice Goodwill, and I got a whole bedroom set (2 dressers, a queen size headboard, and a big mirror) for $100. I also got a nice handmade cabinet with beveled doors and trim for $40, a very nice wooden framed mirror for $15, and a handmade over-the-toilet space saver for $20. There are some seriously nice finds there!!

  • I shop Goodwills all the time. It's amazing how many brand new, with tags, items you can find!!! The Target 75% rack always has great deals. I have bought lots of shirts and sandals for $2 and $3. Also, at Kroger's, I have used coupons that they double and got things for free! Doesn't get much better than that!!
