Just another day with the Bargain Queens!

Well me and mom were sitting at the kitchen table eating Penn's(local burger and hot dog joint that taste way better than any fast food chain) for lunch and we decided to go shopping. Not just any kind of shopping where we go to the mall and buy a few clothes, no a normal everyday shopping trip in our town. Our itty bitty city has Walmart, Big Lots, Peebles, Walgreens, CVS Pharmacy, Rite-Aid, Cato, Payless, Family Dollar, Dollar General, Family Dollar, and Belk. I'm serious thats all we have! Anyways, we decided to go to Big Lots and our shopping trip grew from there.

I got a big bag of cotton balls for two dollars but I found the same exact bag at Dollar General later on for a dollar.

Three bottles of baby shapoo for thirty scents each! I buy baby shampoo to clean my makeup brushes.

Almost every Big Lots sells makeup. makeup is only a dollar online but with tax and shipping it adds up, but tw0 waterproof/regular mascara duos were a dollar!

After Big Lots we went down the road to Dollar Tree and bought a few things then walked over to Payless which was next door.
My mom bought these for me because they were having a buy one get the second half off. My shoes were nineteen dollars and hers were five dollars.

They also had the same sale for their jewelry so I bought two sets of earrings. One was two dollars and the othere pair were four dollars I think.

Next we walked over next door again to Cato and my mom bought me a cute yellow shirt to match my shoes.

Then me and my mom hit Dollar General on the way home and I bought these items.
I got a L.A. Colors Concealer, ten for a dollar candy sticks, and an all over brush.

This all over face brush is from also. I had no idea Dollar General sold makeup so I was super excited but everything they carry was sold out. Except for one all over face brush and a pair of eyelashes.

Congrats on starting a blog. You will have so much fun. Well, you hit some of my favorite stores. Big Lots and DG never fail me. Great stuff.

Congrats on starting a blog. I see that you are as big a bargain shopper as your mother ☺.

I don't think we have as many stores as you do!

take care,

You really know how to do bargains, girl! Up here where I live all of our stores that are close are either reeeeally expensive or a cheap imitation 'Made in China' dollar stores. Usually we have to travel quite a ways to get to a Target or Christmas Tree Shop.

Wow, Ashley you found some great finds. Your town sounds much like my town, except we do not have a Belk or Payless, but there is a Dollar General on every corner!! I absolutely LOVE those cute yellow shoes.
