I love Kohl's.

Kohl's is one of the best places ever to shop. It's similar to Beall's here in Florida, but there are parts of each store that I like better than the other.

I do equally well saving money when I shop at each...so I won't complain. 

Today I picked up a dress on clearance for $21.60 - I've had a thing for purple lately. And the ruffles around the midsection sucked me in.
Ok, I admit, it looks awful in this picture. It's much cuter on. Really...it is. Otherwise I would never have paid $20+ for it. It's one of those pieces that just isn't good on a hanger.

Apair of black capri leggings for $4.20 (you don't need to see a picture of black leggings right? Pretty basic...)

A cardigan for $12. I love the color and the pearly buttons. The color doesn't photograph well...it's actually a dusty purple...looks kinda gray here.


And a necklace with lots of beads made from semi precious stones for $9.  Chaps...I love Ralph Lauren...I also loved all the colors of these beads and the length of the necklace. It also came in a shorter length. Which I might need...


I also had a $10 off $20 coupon from the paper the other day. Orange even...my favorite color!

Plus I had a 15% off coupon because I have their credit card...they stack some coupons. Like these 2. Woo hoo for me!

So after the discounts I walked out the door with $34.02 less in my pocket. The nice guy that rang up my purchases was kind enough to use a red pen to circle my savings of $116.21 - thank you very much.

I would totally wear the dress to work tomorrow, but I can't shave my legs. 

You see - I signed up for this refillable razor study that was supposed to start today, but when I went to pick up my first test razor I was informed that they were supposed to be delivered on Friday and they weren't. I was one of 5 women standing there this morning, and I was the only one who wasn't overly put out by the whole thing. You see, I work in the same building as the research company...I just have to skip down 4 flights of stairs to get mine...they called while I was away from my desk this afternoon and said they weren't delivered today either, but UPS said tomorrow's first delivery (we get 2 drop offs each day). Soooo no go on the dress tomorrow. Maybe Wednesday...depending on the new razor.  I can't use anything but this test razor for 2 weeks. TWO WEEKS! I hope it's a good one...of course after the two weeks I take it back with a questionnaire and pick up ANOTHER test razor to use for 2 weeks. When I take it back with the 2nd questionnaire, I get $75 in cash. I might look like sasquatch, but $75 is $75. Which doesn't make a dent in a $10,000 foundation fix, but hey...it's free money. Sign me up...

I love to shop at Kohl's. I needed a dress to wear to a wedding that we are going to in a few weeks...and found one there on sale for $17.99.
