Value Village 50% off sale – Three “new” outfits for $20 (plus other finds)


value village collage 1

This post is written by Kerri, our Rite Aid, WinCo and QFC expert here at Queen Bee Coupons. She lives on Camano Island (Washington) with her husband and their five beautiful children! She is not only awesome at shopping secondhand, but she does cool things like U-Pick apples or taking frugal weekend trips to save creatively – while having fun with the family! 

I’ve always loved clothes. I have no trouble sticking to a grocery budget, can easily skip the latte line and often do without. But stick me in a mall near clothing stores and my self-control is a lot harder to muster. It doesn’t help that I have three teenage daughters that now love clothes as much as I do (see ideas on how to save on clothes for teens here). The best way I’ve found to enjoy the fun and creativity of fashion while still sticking to a modest budget is to shop secondhand – especially taking advantage of special sales and discount days.

I wanted to get myself a couple new outfits for this summer so I headed into Value Village for their 50% off Memorial Day sale. I gave myself a $20 budget. While this amount would be laughable at a mall, it’s actually doable when shopping secondhand – especially during a 50% off sale. For just $20 I was able to create three new outfits for myself. Here’s what I got:

  • Ann Taylor Loft denim shorts – $4
  • J. Crew polka dot sleeveless Shirt – $4
  • Halogen (Nordstrom) crewneck sweater – $3.50
  • Old Navy red ballet flats – $3
  • Banana Republic strapless dress – $3
  • H&M floral ballet flats – $2.50
    Total = $20 for 3 outfits

The best part is that these are all among my favorite stores so to find clothing from them at a fraction of the cost of new is a bonus.

In addition, I was able to do some shopping for my daughters. The outfit above – Hollister shorts and a Hollister sweatshirt – was just $8 total. We already owned the shoes and they were a perfect match.

I was also able to get three shirts for my daughters. Two are Hollister shirts and they were just $3.50 each after the 50% off sale. The Nike shirt was brand new – tags still on – and was just $3.50. The tag is from Macy’s and is for $35.00 so a savings of 90%.

Shopping secondhand can take more time and perseverance than just hitting the mall requires, but it can also be a lot of fun and is very rewarding once you see how easy it is to save big.

We love hearing about your deals – please leave a comment and let us know what great secondhand deals you’ve scored lately!

Rise and Shine May 25 – Memorial Day, Shirt Tales flashback, Rosetta Stone, memory foam mattresses, more


Rise-Shine-queen-bee-2015-january

Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able. 

American-Flags

Good morning! How are you this morning? How has your weekend been so far? We are honoring Memorial Day this weekend – so grateful for all of our military service personnel and their families. We have so many of you in the Queen Bee Community and I’m so grateful for you. Hugs to you if you’re missing a military family member this weekend and/or mourning someone who has given the ultimate sacrifice for our country through service.

This weekend has been a busy one for us. We started sorting everything in the house into piles so that we can either move, donate/sell or toss items to get the house empty! We started going through boxes in the attic that I’ve had since leaving for college in 1998 – I hadn’t gone through them in probably that long. Lots and lots of letters (snail mail, remember the good ole days?!) and photos. Definitely a blast from the past. There are PILES everywhere but I’m hoping by the end of the week everything will be in it’s place!

Shirt-Tales-Pammy-costume

Anyone remember Shirt Tales? A Hallmark card-inspired cartoon from early 1980s? My mom made this Pammy Panda Halloween costume for me when I little. I pulled it out of the attic yesterday and it fits my daughter perfectly! 😉 Costume is probably 30 years old. Lots of flashbacks like this as I go through boxes with childhood memories tucked inside. I’m not downsizing a lot of this (too sentimental!) – just organizing it a bit better so I can find things easier in the future.

Thank you to everyone who shared your tips and ideas for how to save on clothing for 18-inch dolls!
