I love Marshalls!

I will admit that when I first heard of Marshalls I was slightly apprehensive of even stepping foot into one.  But I finally caved in last summer considering that it is only a couple of miles away from my house and now I will admit that I am a converted Marshalls shopper.  I have had many successes there including a couple of the following things I picked up today:

Fisher Price/Brica Snack Pod: $12.99 both at Toys 'R Us and; $7.99 at Marshalls

And who doesn't love Trumpette sock, aren't these a doozie?  I was able to pick up this cute Minnie Mouse Trumpette sock set for $5.99 at Marshalls.  Trumpette is still selling the same set for $13.25, and that is even their sale price.  This is definitely the highlight of my impromptu shopping trip!

The last item I picked up was a breatheable crib bumper.  It surprisingly goes with the rest of our crib theme so that was a defnite plus!  Another plus is that it was only $12.99 at Marshalls as opposed to $58.99 as seen here on Amazon.

All in all, I think I had a good shopping day even though the original plan was to NOT spend money.  Let's just hope the hubby approves when he gets home from work...crossing my fingers!

My Obsession with Old Navy

I will admit that I am a cheap skate especially when it comes to maternity clothing.  Surprisingly, I somehow get compliments on my outfits so it can't be too bad right?  Anyways, I will also admit that I clothe my family in Old Navy clothing a majority of the time.  Their casual style and hard to beat bargains (especially when they have an extra 50% off clearance) make it a one stop shop for me.  Sure I still splurge on jeans, shoes, handbags, ahnd other accessories but when it comes to kids clothing and the wardrobe basics for adults...Old Navy is my place to go.

So with that said, today's Groupon (there goes the cheapskate in me again) is $10 for $20 of merchandise at Old Navy.  And you bet your bottoms I will be purchasing my limit of one coupon...hahaha.  Anyways, have a look at it and seriously consider it!  It's okay too...your secret is safe with me!
