I went to the mall yesterday on my lunch break in search of some after-Christmas clearance deals. I was specifically looking for sweaters. (I have more cardigan sweaters than Mister Rogers, but that is beside the point) I had read on other blog that American Eagle was having some good sales and so I thought I would check it out. Can someone answer this question - what were designers thinking when they decided to make 3/4 sleeves? Ok people, I live in MINNESOTA!! It is cold here every day. If I'm going to be wearing a sweater, I want that sweater to cover my whole arm. I like wearing these type of sweaters in the spring and fall, but not during January.

Another pet peeve I have is the shrug. These are popular items for knitters. I don't know what the appeal is. Maybe its because they use less yarn and take less time, who knows. I don't like them because they don't look good on adults. Skinny teens look good in them, but not me. There were tons of shrugs on clearance at AE, so apparently I'm not the only one who doesn't like the shrug.

I did walk away with a couple of items. This sweater was only $6.95! The jeans were a good deal too.

I am determined not to make this blog about things that I buy. I have read a couple of blogs where all they talk about is material things. I don't want this to be like that. However, I do like to get a good deal and I will share those deals.

Today was a lazy Saturday. I organized my closet and didn't do much else. We went to Chili's tonight for supper. That's about all I did. Boring, but relaxing.

Peace out.

ETA - I came across this cool site. I LOVE these tags. They have some great sayings. They have a store at ETSY and their jewelry is cool too. Great inspiration.

    Hi Becca,

    Great bargain shopping. I'm proud of you. Your mom taught you right. The sunglasses, did you get them to wear on your cruise? They are cute. I wore ones like that back in the 70's. I also wore Gauchos. Did you know it is windy and raining here in the Pacific Northwest. We had 12 foot waves here at Birch Bay on Saturday.
    Talk to you soon!
