Bargains at the mall

I was thoroughly pleased with the bargains I found at the mall this weekend.

Retail prices: $56 for bag, $6.99 and $4.99 for journals, $10 and $10.50 for lotions, $12 for lip gloss.

Total retail price: $100.48 + tax

What did I pay? $22.40 total.


Belk (a Southern chain?) had their handbags on sale for 50% off lowest price, Bath and Body Works was having their semi-annual clearance, and Waldenbooks had a 75% off clearance section.

Where have you found good clearance deals lately?

Scrapbookers: A free download

One of my favorite scrapbooking gurus, Becky Higgins, has a free download available on her site. She had been selling a really cool kit called Project 365. It encouraged you to take a picture every day this year, just slip them in page protectors and add a tad of journaling at the bottom. A real quick, easy way to save memories from your family. I loved the idea and got online to purchase the kit the morning it went on sale, but it sold out before I could get one. With so many disappointed customers, Becky put many of the items online to print yourself. I love this idea and am keeping up with it so far, all thirteen days of this year. :)
