5 Deals on Basics Under $5 Dollas

5 Bucks! 5 big ones! 5 Smackaroos! 5 greenbacks! These are some mighty fine staple items for just a teeny tiny price tag. I’ve personally tried all of these items and can vouch that they are awesome squared. Get prepared for a bargain induced coma!

  1. Walmart, Faded Glory Organic Stretch Cotton Tanks $4 each- These are a great staple tank top that I buy every year. Perfect for under a cardi, over a tee for some cute layering or just alone on those hot summa’ days.
  2. Forever21, Basic Fitted Tee $3.50 each- I have been buying these tees for YEARS and they actually hold up remarkably well. Great basic and I love that they are made longer for us long torso gals and the stretch helps them keep their shape all day long.
  3. Walmart, Lace Tanga Panties $3.70 each- I’m not trying to be all up in yo face with my undergarments, but I’d be doing you an injustice not to tell you that these are the bomb. And pretty damn cute too, if I don’t say so myself.
  4. Old Navy, Womens Flip Flops– $3.50 each- I feel like I’m preaching to the choir here about these, but they really are a staple in my book. I end up with about a bazillion of these each summer and they are so cheap that I can replace them every year and think nothing of it.
  5. Forever21, Polished Hoops $3.80 – Being that I feel naked without any earrings on, these are a savior on the mornings when I don’t wanna give much thought into anything. And um, UNDER.4.BUCKs. Need I say more??


  1. I know it’s TMI but I LOVe, LOVE , LOVE me some Tanga panties! I usually get mine at Gap body but I am going to march my (cheeky) butt to Wal-mart to snag me some of those! Thanks!

  2. Normally the words “Walmart” and “lingerie” are not words I would love in a sentence together, but those are pretty sassy.

  3. @Pammer They ARE sassy 🙂

  4. All these items remind me summer is just around the bend. I always get sucked in by Old Navy’s 2 for 5 sale on flip-flops 4 pairs later I’m wonder what the hell I just did. Thanks for the bargain shopper tips Der.
