places I shop

I'm joining Kelly's 'show us your life friday' on my favorite places to shop. Wanna play along?

Let me start by saying I LOVE TO SHOP and I love a good bargain. I shop anywhere, really. I recently bought a top (that I am wearing here) at Meijers for $5! And speaking of that picture, I got the necklace from Walmart! So really, I will shop anywhere.

My faves are TJMaxx, Marshalls, Target (although mostly for shoes/accessories not too much for clothes), Old Navy (I get a huge majority of Gray's clothes from there and Robb's too), Gap and I really like Forever 21 but don't get there as often as I would like. I look online a lot there b/c we don't have a store close by. So see....its all about the cheap!

I love love love the style of Anthropologie but I just couldn't spend that much on clothes and feel ok about it, so I get inspiration from their clothes and try to recreate the looks for much less. It's a hobby of mine! I am currently on a mission to find something like this and this for Spring!

What about you? Where do you like to shop?

I also do most of those stores..I do Old Navy for most of my boys clothes as well too! I love Ross too, and Kohl's..they give 10 dollars Kohl's cash with every 50 spent and it's great! I do a lot of online shopping as well..Zappos.com has great boys shoes too! I am a bargain hunter too :-)

Another good online bargain store is http://www.thefifteendollarstore.com/

I do a TON of online shopping and have always had a "champagne taste on a beer budget" though! :o

I like Target and Old Navy, and a great place to find sort of knockoffs of the expensive stuff (like Anthropologie) is Forever21. I don't know if they have one by you but it's totally worth looking.

Katie, Have you ever visited NEWBS? If you start you might find it a little addicting as far as jewelry!! It's really inexpensive and really unique!

The Once Upon A Child out on 28th st just moved into a new store location and it's great! I just stocked up on some great summer clothes for Kaden at great prices!

I'm a bargain a holic. Back when we lived in LA I was set. I would buy designer stuff at Target prices. Loved it. Unfortunately, it got me into designer stuff and there aren't that many "deals" on that here in Charlotte. Anthropologie is my absolute favorite, too. That's where I do my special splurge shopping. I've gotten some great deals from their sales. I've started doing consignment shopping and thrift stores for H and LOVE my stuff I've been getting there.
