I lovelovelove Savers! I went last Saturday because a coworker gave me two 20% off coupons. While I was shopping, I saw a friend of mine shopping with 4 of her 10 children. I gave her one of the 20% off coupons. She said they hadn't been to Savers for years (they live on the far end of the island) and they had something like 3 carts full of clothes. She really
appreciated that 20% off!
I noticed some price inflation since my last visit. I seldom had to pay more than $10 for any one item of clothing. This time I bought 3 items marked $12.99 (less the 20%
): Two Vanity Fair bras (nude & black) that fit me exactly right, brand new with tags showing their original retail price of $36 each; and One pair of navy blue Banana Republic "leggings" - skinny pants with cargo pockets - brand new with tags showing its original retail price of $54!
I also bought two pair of stretch pants (heather grey and purple) for $4 each (after discount). I needed new riding pants but they are pricey. Even the internet clearance sales were over $50 plus S&H. The stretch pants don't have "wear patches" on the inside of the knee, so they wear out after a couple years. But since I only spent $4 on them, I don't mind buying another pair every couple years. I'm wearing the new dress ($8) that matches an earring & bracelet set I already owned, but didn't have much that matched them. Then there's my new mu'u mu'u ($8) that hugs my curves and looks awesome.
All in all, I spent just over $70 to buy a big bag of clothes that I really needed and they all look great! SCORE!!
