I *Heart* Shoes
I love shoes. I think every woman does. I love shoes more when I get a good deal. The above shoes were my best deal ever! Ever! I went to Kohl's in search of a pair of casual shoes. My mother-in-law had given me two $10 coupons that she received in the mail and I was prepared to use them.
I found these Mudd shoes originally priced at $44.99. They were on sale for $26.99. At the register they rang up for $17.93. I used my $10 coupon (they only allowed one coupon per transaction) and my 15%-off discount for having a Kohl's charge. My total bill, including tax, was $7.08 !
Usually when I find a good deal on a pair of shoes, the shoes are size 6, 7, or something else too small for my feet. Rarely are there any size 9 shoes for a bargain. Score for me!
Next up. My Candies heels. (Joe liked the shoes and offered to buy them for me. Who was I to refuse?) They were originally $49.99 and on sale for $34.99. With my $10 coupon and 15% discount (and I bought a Christmas present for one of my children) the total bill was $31. So two pairs of shoes and a Christmas present for less than $40! I love a bargain.
P.S. I was wearing these heels on Sunday when I was towering over my husband. He is normally about 2 inches taller than I am, but when I wear heels, I am Amazon-ish.
And here is one of the thrifted items I picked up last week. It is a vintage baby bassinet. (I do not intend to put Sawyer in it.) I think it will become destined for fabric storage.
