I am still in the States......for now

Haven't been out galavanting or anything. But have been busy so that's the reason behind the lack of blogging in the past week. Yardsales were bad last Saturday, so nothing exciting to report from that. And my computer has been acting funny the last few days due to some virus or something. uggh.

My bargain yesterday was at JC Penneys. I had gotten a coupon in the mail, take $10 off a $10 purchase, so I had to use it. Bought a cruise-wear necklace for $2.76 - regular price $18. Once I got it home, I thought it was too busy looking, so I took a pair of pliers to it to make it more to my liking. The cheap necklaces at Penneys are glued to a card thingy, so hard to see what it really looked like on. It was a 5 stranded necklace, so I removed 3 of the shorter strands. If I get crafty, I'm sure I could make a bracelet or something out of the leftovers. I think it will look good with my $3 dress.

teen shops like rave, american eagel, forever 21, charlotte russe etc. have fabulously inexpensive jewelry and accessories . i am wearing a $16 BOGO piece to work tomorrow . . . final cost $3.50. claires and icing are also worth the look; got several $25+ pieces last yr at their 10 for $10 sale.
most of these shops are in every standard mall.
smooth sailing to you and thx for the wonderful tips !!
