my very expensive cheap weekend and why I love online shopping

March 31, 2008

Hello readers-

Well this weekend was awesome. I didn’t go out at night and I didn’t really do much of anything – no cab rides, expensive dinners, or late night cab rides. FYI, my boyfriend wasn’t in town and I didn’t really feel like braving the cold at night by myself. I did, however manage to frugally spend a good deal of cash. And by frugally, I mean…. I hit the jackpot. Here’s how I did it.

I went shopping at American Eagle on Saturday afternoon. I love this store because it’s so fun and summery and they have such cute “hanging out” clothes and beach clothes. I know I don’t live near a beach, but a girl can still purchase, right? This is what i bought.

How cute is this set? I am a sucker for pink and hearts and well I’ve been drooling over this cute set for ages. Everytime I went into American Eagle, I would ALMOST buy it, but just didn’t. Then it went on sale when I was out of town and when I went back in, my size was gone. Luckily I bought it online and got a 20% savings using a discount coupon code. (Just google “store name discount coupon code” and you can always find savings). Also, the bra is on sale online but not in the store. This is why I love shopping online.

I also bought these shorts which are only available online. Cute for hanging out at the beach, cute for walking around and super fun! Another reason why I love online shopping. They come in dark blue… but the yellow are much more fun!

Let me tell you how lucky I was with this dress. I was browsing through Forever21 on 34th street and I spotted this dress that was misplaced on the first floor amongst the madness that is Forever21. I quickly grabbed it up because its so adorable and then I looked at the price tag -$13.50. YES folks, that’s cheaper than some cabs in New York. Hell, that’s cheaper than a bagel at Murray’s Bagel Shop on 6th Ave.  So I search for a size small somewhere in the store and see what other colors this comes in. Turns out that the section that they house these dresses in was closed for the day (WTF??). I decided to take my chances and try it on. Jackpot. It fit perfectly… and that’s how I got a bargain.
