Steals & Deals – Pt 1 – Kohl’s
It was a week when nothing seemed to be going right. And when I feel overwhelmed, with no solution to whatever is bothering me, I go for walks. Usually REALLY long ones.
On this particular day I felt so much anger. Right now I can’t even remember what I was angry about, but I knew then, that if I didn’t breeze out and take a walk, the situation would have escalated even more than they already had.
So I threw on a sweater and some cut-offs (I don’t think I even bathed), put on my sneakers, stuffed some money into my pockets, and without a word I was through the door.
Instead of going left, I went right… then right again before I got to the highway… I must have walked maybe 3 miles when I finally came to a supermarket. I would buy myself an iced tea and sit under the trees and people watch for awhile.
But then I remembered! There was a Kohl’s department store around the corner. I quickly searched through my pockets. Who carries only $3 on the road walking to nowhere!! There it was… a $10 coupon/gift card that we received in the mail a couple weeks before. *shrug* “Oh well,” I thought, “it’s not much; it probably won’t be able to buy anything, but at least I can look around and lighten my mood.” I had initially intended to use it toward something for the house, but what the heck… maybe I should buy something for ME for a change.
If it’s one thing I love, it’s a good sale…or rather, a great purchase. After maybe an hour of looking through racks and shelves of not-so-discounted items, I can’t believe what luck I had to find two really wonderful items to put the hugest smile on my face!!! All for the grand sum of $1.07!!! Yes, you read that right. One deggeh-deggeh dolla and seven cents (US$). Give thanks for that extra $10 which was what made this fantastic purchase SO WORTH that hell long walk!!
My purchase? A pair of LC Lauren Conrad floral dress shorts, and a pair of turquoise crocheted flats. Yes, I got a pair of shoes out of that deal!
I felt like how I imagine those Extreme Couponers feel when they go to the register and get groceries for free!!
I think this had definitely spawned a new category on Chineyphat.com!! Look forward to more Steals and Deals coming your way soon!!
*sigh* I love shopping!
