Day 3: Stop and Smell the roses

Tuesday, April 3, 2018

I am a sucker for a floral dress and pockets.  This little frock fit the bill perfectly and I had to scoop it up from the racks of TJ Maxx a few weeks ago when I saw it was marked down.  One of the things I am constantly doing is keeping a list of things that I want/ really love that maybe aren't in my budget at their full price.  What I have found is that more often than not I find that item on sale somewhere for a much better deal.  It may end up being last season but I am one of those people who will wear an item I love until it's falling apart at the seams.

I have a few stores that I check pretty constantly, TJ Maxx and Nordstrom Rack.  If you do not live near one they always have great online inventory too with the added bonus of not having to sift through racks.  The key is to keep an active eye on new arrivals and clearance items.  It shocks me sometimes how quickly new and old inventory rotates at these places.  my best advice for shopping discount stores is if you see it snag it because someone else will.  And that FOMO is for real!
