Here is another bargain blog post!
So one of my favorite things to do with one of my best friends is to go to Claire’s and shop their “10 for 10” sale. We discovered this sale many years ago and have continued to shop it together and separately over the years. For those of you who have never heard of this I suggest you pop into a Claire’s boutique the next time you are in the mall and see if the sale is on. They usually have a few spots at the back where they put the 10 for 10 items. Basically you can buy 10 accessories for ten dollars! You have to buy a minimum of 10 items to get the deal but once you’ve reached ten items then any item over that is still just one dollar! It’s pretty sweet. Now if you are saying “I don’t like Claire’s it has to many items geared towards teen’s and pre-teens” I would agree with you on the most part but the 10 for 10 racks have something for everyone. Grant you it is costume or “junk” jewelry and accessories but for a buck if you only ever wear it once then it really isn’t the end of the world. You can also sometimes find great gift filler’s there.
Educating you on the 10 for 10 does warm my heart but I should get back to the point of this post.
So recently my best friend who is somewhat of a socialite 😉 was in town and we hit up the mall for some retail therapy and low and behold…Claire’s had their 10 for 10 on! Yay!! We each got multiple items which was funny since Shalla had just shopped the 10 for 10 in another city earlier that day! But that’s what I’m saying! There is always something there you could talk yourself into spending a buck on!
As you can see I was able to find lot’s of things!
- A happy birthday sash for my little girls first birthday
- Fun party straws with lips
- Hoop earrings
- Hair pins
- 2 head bands
- Silver hair bow
- Temporary eye tattoo’s (something I would never buy otherwise)
- Rainbow colored hair piece
- Owl wood bead bracelet
- Turquoise, spiked wood bracelet
- Black dangle earrings
- Lip shaped ring
- Big bow ring
- Small bow ring
- Wood ring
- Center part tear drop hair pin (the tear drop rests on your forehead)
I didn’t get the big round earrings from the sale, Shalla actually brought those to give to me so they were…Freeee! lol!
So for all 17 items in this picture (excluding the free earrings) I spent $19.80 with taxes! The receipt printout told me that I saved 39.60. Now I don’t think that is based on the regular price. I think the savings are based on the marked down price. Either way it was great savings and I had so much fun!
I hope you enjoyed this little post! Feel free to comment and let me know what some of your favorite sales are to shop!
