Sunday Shopping Success!

I am, by far, the biggest bargain shopper you will ever meet. (Except for nice things, things you will have for a while and/or vacations.) I really can't tell you the last time I paid full price for clothes or a pair of shoes. If it's not on sale at the time, I'll wait for it to get there. If it's on sale but a little pricey, I'll wait for it to go down even more. By no means am I cheap...I just prefer to get more for my money as much as possible. I mean, what other 20 something gal doesn't? (And why did I just use the word gal? I hate that word.)

Anyway...today's trip to Marshall's was one of my biggest shopping successes!

I knew it was going to be successful because it started out with a $100 gift card. DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH STUFF YOU CAN GET AT MARSHALL'S FOR $100????!!!! The possibilities are endless! (Thanks to Capital One for allowing me to use my points for awesome gift cards!)

Oh, another reason I knew it was gonna be good was because I was there before the store opened. Crazy, I know, but I really didn't know they didn't open until 11am. Unlike these crazies waiting for the doors to open...I nonchalantly waited in the truck and waltzed in at 11:01. ha! (yes. I'm that girl that snaps photos of weirdos in public.)

I went in with a small list of things Beau and I have been needing/wanting for our house: lamps, wall decor, bed side table, and possibly something for me to wear to our shower. (Ok-so he didn't know about that last one but I secretly kept an eye out for a stellar outfit. No luck.)

I ended up walking out with 2 matching lamps, perfect lamps, for the house priced at $25 each. TWENTY FIVE DOLLARS PEOPLE!! Lamps are never that cheap!! They are so perfect for our new end tables and fiance approved. Good buy, Stephanie. Good buy.
Yes, we have dead animals on the walls.
This is Texas people!
As mentioned above, no stellar outfit was found. :(
But instead...
...drum roll please...
Yes. That's a CHI curling iron. And did you see the price tag?? $24.99??!!!

I've been on the lookout for a good/reasonably priced curling iron so I couldn't pass it up if someone paid me to do so!

I swear, if I ever need a second job I think I would seriously consider working at Marshall's. I wonder if they get discounts off the discounts?! Not a bad idea...


  1. I love Marshalls!! and Home Goods too!!! I would sooo work there for a discount if I needed to!! The chi was an absolute awesome buy!! hope you had a great weekend :)

  2. I love Marshall's, great finds!

  3. I went to Marshalls today too!! It is literally less than 3 minutes from our house which can be very very bad for my bank account. I loooveeee it.

  4. Sounds like you had a very successful shopping trip! I love Marshall's!

  5. Those lamps are so nice and Marshalls and TJ Maxx are the best!!!You and I sound just alike when it comes to shopping lol. It is rare that I buy something full price.

  6. I love Marshalls/ Home Goods so much. They always have the greatest deals ever! And I hear ya, why buy something for full price when you can get it like a month or two later for half that price?


  7. a CHI for $25!!! that is insane!

  8. Great finds! Those lamps are amazing! I love your disclaimer about the animals on the wall--we live in Texas and I feel like I have to give that same disclaimer. Ha!

  9. That is AWESOME!! I LOVE Marshalls! I can't believe you found that curling iron there too! I always luck out and find Michael Kors purses at mine.
    P.S. Love the lamps!
