What do you do when you have 2 hours to yourself, and $30 to spend?
Well, if you are me, you try to figure out how far you can stretch $30. I decided I would take a trip to the mall. I must have been one eager beaver because when I arrived I thought there was something terribly wrong. All the stores were closed. No worries, I just arrived 15 minutes prior to the start of the business day. I decided to stop at Starbucks and get a Caramel Frappachino....just the energy boost I needed to decide which stores I wanted to visit.
I vowed I would not take out the plastic. This meant I could not go over my allotted $30. My only cushion was $2 (my change from Starbucks). What did I get?

girly and delicate. If you look closely you can see pretty pleating and gatherings. The hanger does no justice for it. $6.50

Seems like blush was the color of the day. I spied this adorable 3/4 sleeve crop cardigan on the sale rack. And since I was wearing a cami today, tried it on, on the spot. Loved it. One look at the price tag, and the decision was made! $4.99
A pair of sandals were just calling my name as I passed ALDO's to Starbucks at the start of my adventure. But I thought, there is no way I am going to find anything within my budget in there. Went to peruse the Macy's shoe sale rack, nothing. I was about to walk out the Macy's exit when I realized...I didn't park on this side of the mall! Through Macy's I went and out into the mall area....I had to pass ALDO's to get to the exit where my vehicle was parked. Again the sandals started taunting me....CJ....CJ.... Oh, well, what can looking at the price tag and laughing do to me right? I walked in and it was then I noticed a sign...SALE up to 75% off. A smaller sign on the shelf where the sandals were calling me from stated $19.99. I asked the sales woman if she had my size in these sandals and sure enough, she did! I came home with these pretties!
My grand total for my finds today? $31.48. Sweet finds indeed!
