I consider myself a frugalista. I love to shop, but I want nice, quality items for cheap. The last time I went shopping at Gap, I found a pair of Havaianas flip-flops. I had heard the name before and after the coupon I had, the flip-flops cost about $3. I knew the retailed for more, so I bought them to see what they hype was about.
Fast forward to me being pregnant during the summer. I couldn’t see my feet anymore and wearing shoes with laces was not an option. I pulled out my Havaianas and put them on. I saw what they hype was about! I have never worn a flip-flop so comfortable. I wore them all summer and through the duration of my pregnancy (even when it rained lol). I always felt safe in them, but became sad when I noticed I was wearing them out.
I had a $20 credit on Rue LaLa–a boutique sales site. They have sales on high-end brands. Anyhow, I had been looking to use this credit for months now and could never find anything cheap enough. I was looking to find an item right around $10, so the other $10 would cover shipping (pay the $10 once and every other purchase ships FREE for 30 days). I was ecstatic when I saw a Havaianas sale. They had 2 packs of sandals for right around $6 bucks each and others for right around $10 each. I was going to get (2) of the cheaper 2 packs but I would have had to pay about $2 out-of-pocket. I opted for a $10 2-pack and with shipping, I still have a 15 cent credit. I’m stocked that I’ll be getting 2 packs of my sandals for FREE and, if I decide to buy anything else within 30 days, it will ship for free 🙂
