Warehouse Shopping

Mr. Bargainista and I visited our favorite warehouse sale while we were out of town last weekend. The bargains were flowing and we were quite fruitful!

For me:
Ann Taylor Jeans. Original Price: $78. My price: $14.99!

I also purchased footless tights (no pictures). They were both $1.99. The brown were by Ann Taylor and the black by Express. They are great for layering on cold days when running or layering for skiing. I think they're a bit more comfortable than footed tights to wear with dresses and boots and then my own cozy socks on my feet.

For Mr. Bargainista:
This great Woolrich jacket. It's fleece lined with a water resistant exterior. This isn't the exact jacket, but the closest I could find. His is in red. He's been wanting a new fleece so this was perfect timing. It's super cozy and warm. Original Price: $119 His Price: $15.
Also Mr. Bargainista found these fancy schmancy work boots. He'll be way cool in them when he finally completes the honey-do list of items I have for him. We're also planning on a slight demo/additon to our home in January in which he'll do some of the work. Original Price: $114. His Price: $40. This is an especially good deal considering Mr. Bargainista wears a size 14 shoe and you can rarely find them period, much less on a great sale.

My Darling Friend; The Gap Outlet

I love this cute little dress I found at the Gap Outlet. It's chocolate brown and super comfy jersey knit. It's thin and made for warmer weather, but I layered with a tank, sweater, and pashmina on the top and tights and boots on the bottom for a great look. It would also look nice with long sleeves layered under it. In warmer weather I'll wear this with leather flip flops or my leopard thong shoes. It was only $20. (Original price was $49.99, outlet price was $34.99 and it was 40% discounted.)

This little dress was most definately a deal from the orignal price of $59.00. I paid only $4.97! It's a cute little black spaghetti strapped slip dress with the cutest pleated trim at the bottom. This will be a great dress to wear with bright shoes and accessories (pink for me!) and to also tie a large satin ribbon around the middle. You can layer shirts under this or cardigans over. I'm certain I'll be layering it son with sweaters, leggings, and boots. I'll also wear this as casual summer wear. It's an easy throw-on outfit with a messy bun and cute sandals for a very polished look. I'm going to have a make a new chunky beaded necklace to go with it.

Did you know you can order Christmas stamps online from the post office for only $1 shipping? How convenient to mark off one more errand.

Are you shopping online? Try to get good deals and discounts by shopping for coupon codes at Current Codes or Retail Me Not.

You can get your picture Christmas Cards printed at Shutterfly for quite a deal and even a few freebies if you're a new comer. Also try services such as winkflash, snapfish, and kodak, (although I'm a devout Shutterfly girl--they have excellent customer service!) I love photo cards! They're so personal and usually less expensive than the store bought boxed kind.

Several merchants are offering free shipping deals through the end of the year with no minimum purchase. Check out L.L. Bean. They have something for everyone your list, even the Bargainista Pooch.
