the Duchess of Savings




I told you guys before that my Best friend the Duchess, aka Melissa, is the best bargain shopper i know. She is always finding things on sale or at a discount store. I have composed a list, JUST from April of all the things she bought that were on clearance. This does not include bargains she might have found at stores like Ross or TJ Maxx unless they were on clearance there. Also this list does not include things she got on sale at the grocery store, used a coupon for that ended up costing her just pennies. This is JUST actual clearance items! It is astounding!

I am afraid if that is the best photo you have of me!! And the deodorant- Secret Clinical Strength 1.6 oz with bonus .5oz travel size reg 7.99 on sale for 5.58 (would have been better had I remembered my $2 off coupon). The clothes...1 pair shoes, 5 tops and 2 bottoms from babies r us for about $28. You are crazy for making me do this, but thanks for letting me know my average savings. love you-the Duchess
