Shopping for less: the fun way!

So, guys, this weekend when I was in Forks, I was climbing over a fallen tree (that was over a stream) in an attempt to get to the beach. I managed to make the hole that was already in my jeans a larger one. This was bad news bears, indeed. I then proceeded to wear the jeans the rest of the weekend, and now they are absolutely inappropriately ripped.

Because I wear jeans to work sometimes (yay working at a school!) I decided that owning only one pair was probably not going to work. So last night, after work, I set out to Ross (which, for those of you on the East Coast, is much like TJ Maxx) to try a new store out and hopefully get some jeans.

I had never been to Ross before, but my friends told me it was excellent. Well, boy, did I get lucky!! If you don’t mind sifting through the racks, which I usually don’t, you get lucky.

Maybe you didn’t know, but Ross is the best place, ever.


Nine West jeans that are $34.99 on their website (I got them for $19.99)

A pair of jean capris ($13.99, thank you.)

timberlandsTimberland shoes that are around $90.00 online (I got them for $16.99, and my sister hates them, as I thought she would.)


Simple Green Toe sandals, selling for $29.60 online. I got mine for $8.99 (Mine are a beige, instead of that green on the fabric.)


Asic sneakers (although my stripe is blue, not green) that are going online for $64.95! Mine were $13.99. Excellent.

Overall, best day. I really needed new everyday sneakers, since mine are heavy duty and make me hot, and my feet need a break from dress shoes. I also needed another pair of sandals, since I live in LA and the forecast today is high of 77, and I only have 1 pair that doesn’t make my feet cry.

The slip on shoes will prove helpful when I am trying to head out somewhere with Jeff (grocery, Target, park, etc.) and it’s too cold for sandals but I don’t want to get my sneakers on. Sometimes, I am just that lazy.

AND I have some new sneakers that make me feel good, and with summer on the way, jean capris never hurt anyone.

Happy Almost-Spring, everyone.

    There are TJ Maxx’s out here too…but Ross is like a cheaper, trashier TJ Maxx. Good stuff.
