The Valentines Day Dollar Holla!!!! What Can You Buy for a $1.00

Roses are red, violets are blue I had a fabulous Valentines Day, how about you? Okay I know that Valentines Day was a couple of days ago but my computer put me on punishment and wouldn’t allow me to talk to you guys and gals (it was acting CRAZY). Any-who for me Valentines Day means spending time with the ones you love most and doing what makes you happy. This V-Day I did both. I spent the evening with the loves of my life (my babies) and the earlier part of the day doing what I love. Can you guess what that is? I will give you a hint, it’s starts with a thr and ends with an ift. If you guessed thrift you would be correct. Vanna tell them what they won, a new ……………. just kidding. On Tuesday one of my favorite thrift store chains had a fantabulous (spell check says this is a made up word) Valentines Day sale. The sale was $1.00 for anything red, pink or with hearts. Yes I said it $1.00. That can be $1.00 bill, 4 quarters, 10 dimes, 20 nickles or 100 pennies. Anyway you slice it you can’t beat a “dollar holla”. I dropped my kids off at school that morning and was off to have some V-day fun.I got to the thrift store at about 9:15 a.m. and headed straight for the coat aisle. Take note one of the major rules I use when shopping a sale like this one is to get as much bang for my buck as possible. What this means is that instead of getting the $5.99 shirt for a $1.00, I go for the $29.99 coat for that very same $1.00. There is a much greater value in getting the higher priced item for a $1.00. Anyway back to the coat aisle. I found 11 amazing coats and jackets for a grand total of $11.00. I also found 3 pair of cute pants. My Valentines Day was off to a great start and this was just the beginning. I visited 2 other stores 0n my Valentines Day journey. In total I bought 23 items that would have retailed for $329.27  and I only spent $23.00 plus tax. How can you beat it??? I bought to many items to show all the pictures so I created my first thrift haul video. Please click the link below to watch the video. It was my first video so please be kind. Make a girl feel good about herself. All in all I would have to say that I had a wonderful Valentines Day. I spent time with my first, second and third loves (my daughter, my son and thrifting)……..ain’t love GRAND!
