Being the frugalista that I am, I am always on the lookout for the next best deal. I dream of good deals and free stuff. On occasion, I crave “free shopping”. This week, my craze has been the free clothing at Target. They have coupons out for $5 off Merona Bottoms excludes swimwear, $5 off any Mossimo apparel item, $3 off any Xhilaration item excludes swimwear, $3 off any Mossimo item, $3 off any Liz Lange item (mostly maternity) and $2 off Newborn to kids denim items.
Since summer is quickly becoming a thing of the past, there are lots of deals to be had. The $5 and $3 Mossimo item coupons can get you free shorts, jean capris, and various shirts and tank tops. The $3 off any Liz Lange item can get you free and very cheap maternity tops, reasonably priced maternity dresses, shorts, capris and pants. The $5 off Merona bottoms can get you free shorts and capri pants for less than 50 cents. I haven’t found any cheap Xhilaration clothing, but they do have sandals on clearance for $1.98 and $3.24. The coupon includes footwear, so you can get free and cheap sandals if you can find them.
All of my finds are clearance finds, which means you may or may not find them at your stores. If you do find them, there may be a lot or a little and sizes you find will vary.
I’m stocked on summer items for myself. I’ll probably end up donating some of it since I got things that may be too small or just plain ugly. Hey, free is free and who am I to pass it up?
In one Target location I was in today, I saw some lady taking several pairs of Merona capri’s off the racks. I am pretty sure she was going to buy them with coupons. It irritates me how people are so open with employees about how many coupons they have. Target’s site allows you to print two coupons per computer. However, there are alternate methods of obtaining more copies of the coupons. It’s just irritating for someone to use a questionable amount of coupons on one shopping trip. In my opinion, it brings attention to couponers and can give them a bad name. I do use a lot of their coupons, but I make several trips. It may seem like a waste of gas, but I rather do that then have the cashiers referring to me as the coupon lady and hassling me every time I use coupons.
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 🙂
