Flat Out Insane

One of my biggest pet peeves is purchasing an item only to find a much cheaper version a few days or weeks later.  Seriously, it eats me up, drives me to the brink of shopper breakdown. This is how I became the bargain hunter that I am today.  Before you go flat out insane from similar circumstances, check these flats out….

Beauty is only $3.00 deep in your wallet

Ok, so I am a drug store troller in addition to a bargain hunter and crazy dog mom. I admit it, you can find me lurking in makeup aisles of the area drug stores on any given day. Some of you may hit up a movie or pick up a good read to get your kicks… not me. Give me a Walgreens or CVS makeup aisle… and you will see what true happiness looks like.

Recently, I have found some gems in my quests. These babies will turn your frown upside down, I tell ya. Each one of these items is like $3.00  max and badass. Cheap thrills…gotta love ’em.

The Fight of the Century

Hello again..Der here. I, like gazillions of you people out there, am a ginormous fan of anything JCrew produces. Man, they know how to make me drool over a ruffled cardigan or applique tee like no body’s business. BUT, there is a huge but here…many, many times they want to charge me something ridiculous like $500.00 for said cardigans and tees. Being the bargain hunter that I am, I find myself searching for these looks for less. And you are in luck because I plan to showcase my finds with you people over the next several days… it’s the CLASH OF THE TITANS: J.Crew vs Forever21

Round ONE
