A couple of weeks ago a co-worker posted on FaceBook that she needed a little "retail therapy" to make herself happy again. I just about lost it! I thought that was funniest thing ever, but I definetly agreed with her there is nothing like a little retail therapy to make a girl happy. Retail therapy can be costly these days (financing a college student's summer living expenses and a teenage at home!!). My oldest daughter- living on a budget- introduce me to Ross - sort of a discount store. These stores claim to purchase overstocked items from other companies and then pass the savings on to the consumer. Now - due to my great respect I have for those "Fashionistas" in the know - I promised myself to NEVER post anything about fashion - however I am about to break that promise. THIS IS NOT ABOUT FASHION - it's about living on a strict summer budget while maintaining necessary retail therapy. So, with that in mind here is my pic of some recent deals I got a Ross and Payless Shoe Store.
