savers steal

10 Apr

I have a new found love for thrift store shopping. It’s something that I always was interested in, but not something I really found the time to do. BUT, lately I’ve found myself HUNTING for amazing deals, good finds, and funky pieces of clothing to add to my wardrobe. I’m really learning to buy AND wear pieces that I absolutely LOVE. Even if no one else seems to like them. If I like how it looks, fits and feels, then that’s ALL that matters. And I’m having so much more fun shopping for clothes when I don’t really care what others are going to think about it! SO, I’ve been visiting Savers regularly. There’s an AMAZING one that opened near my house and I am always dying to run in and see what I can find. I have YET to be disappointed. So I thought I would start sharing my finds here with you from time to time! Thrift shopping isn’t hard. I hear SO many people say that they just have no luck at stores like Savers. But I think it takes a little time, a little sorting through the clothes, AND a little decision making. Like, deciding whether or not YOU like it and wearing it no matter what anyone is going to think.

I found these black little pretties last weekend and I wore them on Easter Sunday. They were FOUR DOLLARS PEOPLE. What a steal! I am obsessed with flats because I’m tall and I don’t have time for high heels frankly. I love how high heels look, but I just don’t really want to wear them. But that doesn’t mean I need to be stuck in ‘frumps-ville’ in the shoe department!! There are SO many adorable, funky flats out there. You just have to find them! So I saw these, tried them on and they fit like a glove!

Seriously my new favorite find right now. And they were four bucks. You can’t beat that!

national cheesecake day

30 Jul

There is actually a whole day devoted to cheesecake. Did you know this? I did not. But now I am sharing it with you!

Today, July 30th, 2010, Cheesecake Factory is celebrating this National Cheesecake Day and you can get any slice at half price! I actually went there last night because they were having any slice for $1.50, which is an amazing deal! I tried their new Reese’s Pieces Peanutbutter Chocolate Cake Cheesecake, which was slightly to die for. It was incredibly rich, so I only ate about 1/4 of it but I brought the rest home.

Mmmm. I’m going to eat some more of it right now.

I really suck at finding good deals on stuff. I’m not a coupon clipper or a thrifty person. I SO wish I was. Usually when I hear about deals like this, I just don’t take advantage of them. I’m not sure why, either! I’m just not good at being thrifty! But when this pregnant lady hears about half off cheesecake, I’m all over it! Honestly, I’m trying to get better about being more thrifty. So when I hear of other amazing deals- not just dessert related- I’ll try to make sure I pass them along.

That being said, go out with a few girlfriends today and celebrate National Cheesecake Day! It’s an excuse to eat some fabulous dessert at HALF OFF.
