I found a new store that I am obsessed with! I love going to the outlet's and I discovered The Loft. It has clothes for professionals of all ages and it is not over a teacher's budget. Actually, they give teacher discounts!
I love a good bargain, who doesn't?! I wanted to share some of the ways that I am able to get good deals and never pay full price for items.
- Rewards programs- sign up for your favorite store's Apps or rewards cards. Most of the time, the Apps have coupons you can use. I also check for promo codes online while waiting in any checkout.
- Sign up for a credit card (only if you shop there frequently and don't have too many cards already). I have two to my most frequented stores because of the amazing coupons they send.
- Head straight to the clearance section. I always find good deals in the Target and Old Navy clearance sections. Sometimes I don't even let myself look anywhere else but clearance! Once you get used to paying 50-70% off it is really hard to ever pay full price again!
- Shop for the opposite season. Because I am a clearance shopper, when all of the winter clothes become discounted in the spring, I buy for next winter. Again in the fall when all of the summer clothes are marked down, I buy for next summer. You do have to have patience, but it pays off in the end!
Today is our first anniversary! I cannot believe it has been a year already... it still feels like yesterday! The entire day was perfect and I would not have changed a thing! Enjoy checking out our decor for any brides looking for inspiration!
I found something similar to this on Etsy and decided to make it myself to save some money. I used Word and was able to recreate almost the exact thing. I bought the frame from the dollar store and it added a nice personal touch to the front table.
You can never go wrong with painted wine bottles! I did three coats and they turned out great!
I got wooden letters from Michael's and painted them.
This was the sign for our guest book. I found this image on Google and reused the frame from my shower.
The front entrance table turned out great!
Our beautiful cake! Each layer was a different flavor... I cannot wait to eat our anniversary layer!
My sister did an AMAZING job with my wedding shower. She made all of the cookies herself and decorated beautifully! I cannot wait to return the favor for her one day!
How cute are the favors?! They are soap inside of a cupcake liner with a loofah on top! They are adorable! We played two games at the shower that made everyone laugh. The first game was a Scattergories game where we had to list things using the letters MRS. The second game was how well we know the bride. There were quite a few funny responses.
All of the guests signed the "G" and wrote a date night idea on a Popsicle stick. I now have a jar filled with fun date night ideas!
Each balloon had a picture of us on it. This was one of my favorite things at the shower!
