Shopping at the Mall - The Good and The Bad

The Bad:
Sabina is now offically in women's shoe sizes. She wears a size 7. Why is this bad? The shoes cost more, the shoes are not so cute - no Dora the Explorer or Strawberry Shortcake in women's sizes and did I mention that they are more expensive??? !!! We went all over the Mall and couldn't find any shoes that she liked that were under $40. I really don't even want to go over $30 because the girl is 7, almost 8. The life of a tennis shoe for a 7 year old, a ROUGH PLAYING 7 year old, is about 3 months - if I am lucky! I will go broke! We are still looking for shoes. We will hit Mervyn's tomorrow - maybe we will get lucky...

The Good:
As we were walking through the Mall, I did a little window shopping. Ok - I tried on clothes! I couldn't help myself. I found a pair of cute pants that were on sale for $19.99. I went up to the register to pay for them. As I pulled out my wallet I remembered that I had a coupon for the store. I figured that it was for 10% off. I handed it the the sales clerk. Guess what - it was for $15 off a purchase of $15 or more!!! That means that I got my pants for a grand total of $5.36. Do you know how exciting moments like this are for me? BIG TIME exciting. I love deals like that! Woo-Hoo! I have been feeling the urge to frame my receipt. I won't - but I will save it! :-)

That's awesome about your cheap find. Maybe the shopping Gods were helping compensate for Sabi's zapatos.

Thanks! It doesn't happen often. Maybe today will be the day that we find shoes for BIG FOOT!

I would have framed that receipt as well! That is awesome! You guys still have Mervyns. They closed all those down over here in Dallas.
