I’m sure it will not surprise you to learn that when I go into a store, I head straight for the clearance racks before I even look to the right or to the left. I am not saying that I only buy clothes that are on clearance, but I do always check there first. You never know what you will find!

Last week I hit the jackpot. My favorite store in town (BELK) had TONS of stuff on sale. Spring is coming, which means time to clear anything out of the store that looks wintry. Rack after rack of things just waiting to go home with someone.  I just had to adopt some of the little orphans. 😉

I don’t mind buying winter clothes at this time of year ….some things can pretty much  be worn for three seasons, and if not, I will just put them away until next year. When I get out my winter clothes next year, I will be surprised to find some nice new things that have never been worn.

I  tried on a million things and ended up with eleven tops that I really liked. Yes, ELEVEN! I truly laughed out loud when the salesclerk totaled it up….$65.00!

When I got home and tried everything on, I decided that three of the items should probably go back to the store. Even though they were inexpensive, I returned them because I have learned that you should not keep things because they were cheap. One top was a color that is not flattering to me, one was just a little too long, and one just didn’t go with anything I had. I am very happy with the eight things I kept. You will definitely be seeing them.

This time of year is great for finding bargains. Let me know if you find any. Can anyone beat 11 items for $65.00???
