Damn, talk about an under $5 find

Today's video clip: I didn't mean to turn you on

As I was driving the work truck this afternoon, this song came on the radio. This is one of my favorite songs from the 80's, and Robert Palmer was a cool dude. Rest in peace.


Bargain item of the week 6-24-07

dress $15, The $15 Store
I'm a sucker for colorful stripes. This would be a nice little summer dress for me, hee hee.

I like 'em short and cuffed

Chile, it is hot as hell down here in Florida. Then again, what's new? Why am I complaining? That's okay. Just another reason to wear oh so cute short cuffed shorts. With this cuffed look, I like my shorts to be a little loose. No camel toe for me, lol. Here some of my picks for under $25.

My $2 finds

My local Old Navy had three racks full of $1.97 items. I love it when they have those sales. I usually come home with a big shopping bag full of stuff, but the racks were kind of picked over. These are what I came home with:

  • green striped polo: I love the colors of this top. Will definitely one of my shirts to wear for this summer.
  • fitted camo jacket: I like this jacket, really lightweight. Have to wait until fall/winter to wear it.
  • puff sleeve rugby
  • animal striped tote: I love that this bag can hold a lot of my crap, lol.

FORUM TOPIC(S) OF THE DAY: Do you think women should allow their new boyfriends to hit their children? The reason I ask this question is because just recently a little boy was killed by the abuse of his mother's boyfriend, and the mother knew of the abuse and did nothing. There's also this person that I know whose new boyfriend is hitting her children. Take your comments to the forum.

Bargain shoe of the week 6-17-07

Brown and orange multi print slingback $24, Lulu's Fashion Lounge
FORUM TOPIC(S) OF THE DAY: As we all know, Sarah Jessica Parker's clothing line, Bitten, debuted at Steve and Barry' s nearly two weeks ago.

Lunchbreak shopping: Payless

American Eagle "Monroe" flat $9.99 (on sale, reg. $17.99), Payless
It's that time again. BOGO at Payless. I haven't been there in a few weeks, so I decided to check out any new merchandise they might have. I didn't see anything that interested me other than this shoe, so I didn't get to BOGO. When I got to the register, the salesgirl reminded me that it was BOGO for the twentieth time since I entered the store:
Salesgirl: "You know it's buy one, get one half off, right"?
Me: "Yes, I didn't see anything else I like".
S: "But, it's everything in the store, not just shoes."
M: "I know. I just want these shoes."
S: "Okay, but you're missing out on a really great sale."
M: "Lady, I gots to go."
I didn't mean to snap at her, but good lord, don't you think I would've been paying for more than one item if I wanted to take advantage of the sale? Sheesh, don't be so pushy, lol.

New Cheap Chica forum....again

Hey everyone, here's the link to my new message board. This one in my opinion, is better than the past ones and more user friendly. Do not click on the pink button in the sidebar, that's the old message board. Blogger is being a bitch, and won't let me make changes to my template, so hopefully I'll have the link ready tomorrow. Visit the new Cheap Chica Forum.
