New Shoes for One Cent??

Image

And no, I’m not talking about the shoes you find in the store parking lot or right next to a dumpster (not that I find them over there, either). I’m talking the shoes you find at a Nordstrom Rack store near you.

Recently on our last trip to the outlets, we stopped by Nordstrom Rack and among our shopping genius finds, picked up a couple pairs of shoes. Our total came to 150 bucks, which we found to be strange considering we had 7 items (and 2 pairs of shoes!)

The saleslady said, “One of your shoe purchases came up as one cent!”

I was floored. I’d purchased a pair of Splendid shoes at a Nordstrom Rack once which originally cost $110 and then rang up as $5, so I felt that I was almost being paid to walk out of the store with them.

But one cent? What the heck can you even purchase these days that is normally one cent?

Not much!

What was your best outlet score?

I Went to Ulta…And Didn’t Spend a Dime!

Image

I love feeling like I am getting paid to shop in some of my favorite stores, and Ulta is no exception.

I realized that I was low on hair products and didn’t want to shell out lots of $$, so I headed over to Ulta because I had a couple of gift cards and a coupon from RetailMeNot. I also love Ulta because as I shop, they give me $$ off my next purchase just by using their loyalty card.

My first stop was, naturally, the clearance section, where I managed to pick up 4 bottles of shampoo/conditioner (2 of each) for around $2 a pop. Next, I picked up a detangler for $18 and Fekkai leave in conditioner for $26.

I headed to check out, anxiously awaiting my total, which was $56. I had an $8 store credit from previous shopping trips, along with my $3.50 RetailMeNot coupon. I then used one of my birthday gift cards and knocked another $30 off, and then another gift card – and still had $13 left over for my next excursion.
