Dear loyal bargain shoppers, I would like to start out by extending an apology for last Friday’s Roundup. Let’s just say that I should not be writing, or shopping for that matter, after happy hour, and sorry to have been such a Debbie Downer. With the promise of a new week ahead of us, I have resolved to meet it with positivity and hope. Mostly, I hope that I can get to the mailbox to get the credit card statement before my husband does, because I am positive he does not need to see the results of my post-drinking shopping spree, like the amount I spent on these knit leggings from Blair, inexplicably in every single color. Well, at least I was lucid enough to take 20% off my order by using code ACCESS20, and I’ll no longer be complaining that I have nothing to wear.
Clearly, I love shopping more than just about anything in the world. I would like to officially put it out there though, that that does not include bra shopping, otherwise known as the seventh level of H-E-double hockey sticks. You ladies know what I mean. As expensive as bras are, is it too much to ask that they actually fit and don’t leave you with spillover that makes you look like some kind of lumpish freak? And another thing - why is it that the bras made for us overly endowed goddesses never come in the cute prints and colors like the ones for the itty bitty crew? Just as I was about to despair, I was clued in to the fact that Lane Bryant carries an intimates line. They are sized to fit those of us in the double and triple cup sizes, and they are pretty, too. I am ordering a whole new undercover wardrobe, since I can take $40 off my order of $150 or more with code AUGUSTGIFT. Deal expires: 9/1.
After a summer of sitting out in the blazing sun, my patio furniture has seen better days. Luckily, it’s the perfect time of year to replace it all. I just snagged this fantastic steel dining table, which should hold up through any weather, for 50% off during the Summer Savings Event at Lowe’s. And even better, it’ll soon be the time of year when evenings cool down enough to be able to actually enjoy dinner outdoors on it.
Most of you probably have someone in your lives who enjoys baseball. You have my sympathies. But hey, there’s a good side to being a baseball widow. While your significant other is spending all his weekends out on the diamond, he won’t even notice how much time you’re spending shopping online. And just in case he does start to get suspicious, guilt him out of it by telling him you were only buying this amazing new bat for him. And if that doesn’t do the trick, lay on the fact that it even shipped for free when you used code JGBBSAH2 at Baseball Express.
It’s almost fall, and while it is still 104 degrees outside, I am comforting myself with the fact that cooler weather is right around the corner. It may not reach SoCal for a while yet, but I can dream of it when I make the bed with this seasonal sunflower quilt set, which I got for $15 off at LinenSource by using code LNSBDAY. Sweet dreams of cooler days!
