Today I am here to tell you about my favorite inherited gene though. It's called the shopping gene. I am a big fan. Both my grandparents on my mom's side were big shoppers. My grandpa probably owned more pairs of jeans when he passed away then I have owned in my entire life. (And I loooove me some jeans). He sees things on clearance and has to have them. And my grandma, she rocked the socks off getting a food storage-she had her years supply of food. Then she tried to convince her husband that she needed a years supply of fabric.
So, my mom was raised a shop-a-holic. Now, on my dad's side, they aren't quite as big shoppers, but they are mighty good at being frugal. Especially my grandma. She can out-DIY pretty much anyone I know. (And I blog-stalk a fair few DIY-ers).
So the combination of the two? Yep. I am a pro clearance shopper. I thrive on it.
|Note: I do not shop in heels. As quaint as this picture is... ow!|
This weekend is Fall Break, which roughly translates to one whoppin' day off of school. For a month or two, my mom and I have been planning some serious shopping for this break. So, I've been stoked.
Today, I got 8 new shirts and didn't spend more than $10 on a single one of them. I also got some cute jewelry, some bogo headbands, a new purse, and 2 jackets (all of those also under $10).
Tomorrow, we're jeans shopping. You know why? 'Cause it's in our genes. :)
