Shopping Today

Well, more like shopping the past two days. I'm on vacation from work this week so I've had a good time relaxing (and studying for midterms/doing projects and presentations, YUCK) and doing some much deserved shopping. I haven't done a writeup on a shopping trip like this in awhile. It's not that I haven't been going or getting good deals, it's just with school and working when I feel like doing them I don't have the time and when I have the time I don't feel like writing it all up. You gotta love it....or so they tell me.

I did all this over the past two days (yes, I still have to go to class which is cramping my schedule, booooo) so most of the Target stuff was gotten today while everything else was gotten yesterday. Although I'm still going to just lump all the Target together, to make my life simpler.

Old Navy:
Part of me thinks this may have been mismarked, but the guy gave it to me for the price on the clearance ticket anyway without any questions.
Isn't that cute??? Original sticker price was $34.99 but the clearance tag had $9.99 on it. Seems like this early in the season it should still have been more than that, but I'm not complaining!

JC Penney:
They have some amazing final clearance markdowns, 80+% off a lot of their warmer weather items. I know it's getting cold, but I love layering, so I still wear short sleeves in the winter a lot, so buying little tops like that now doesn't bother me.The little blue plaid top was on clearance for 3.97 (orig. 26.00) and the little striped cardigan was on clearance for $1.97 (orig. $30). So, with tax, I spent $6.30 and saved $50.06 (according to my receipt). And, I can still happily wear both of them now!

The Shoe Dept:
Being that I teach (I'm only a sub, but I still teach two days a week), I can never have enough flats (am I right, fellow teachers) to run after the kids in, especially flats that are comfortable!
These were on markdown to $9.98 from $29.99. I walked around in them in the store for a little while to see if they would start hurting and they didn't. YAY!

Both trips combined was a total 71% savings. I so very badly needed a new desk chair so when I saw the one below on 75% clearance, I scooped it up (sorry for the random blurry pic of it, if you've been in Target you've probably seen those Bungee chairs and know what it's supposed to be).
