What $100 can buy!

I am a saver! I always have been, as a teenager I saved most of my babysitting money (some of which was used as a down payment on our home!) I have a cash stash from birthday money, Christmas money, & graduation! So, I decided that I was going to spend some to purchase decor for our home and boots! I took $100 cash to town and this is what I came home with!

Fabric (12 yards)....$25.12
Curtain rods....$13.98
Ring clips....$11.98

Once Upon a Wall Letters....$10.20

Solid pink fabric for new baby quilt....$2.81

Black boots....$9.97

Brown boots....$9.97

Purple shirt....$4.97

Grand total: $89 (not including tax) Not too bad for everything I got!!

Here is full price for everything:

Curtain fabric (12 yards) $35.88
Curtain rods $24.00
2 packs Ring Clips $11.98
Pink Fabric $2.81
Once Upon a Wall letters $29.99
Black Boots $100.00
Brown Boots $100.00
Purple Shirt $22.00

Total full price :$326.66

So I "saved" $237.66 which is an almost 72% savings! WOW!!

My total spending was $97.23 with taxes so I still have $2.77 left from my $100! I just love bargain shopping!!

The boots & shirt are from JC Penney! I just love Pennys, it is one of my favorite places to shop for shoes & clothes!

The boots are beautiful. They will never go out of style. I think I'm going to have to make a trip to JC Penney!

I hope you'll do a video making the baby quilt.
