Thursday's Thrifty: I love a good deal..but this is just ridiculous!

Last Thursday, I decided to break my "spending freeze" and took a trip to Goodwill after work.  I gave myself a budget of $30 and left out of there with 4 shirts, 1 skirt, 1 dress for me and 1 dress for Toots with a grand total of $30.37.   Not too shabby!  So, my plan was to share with you guys a few of my finds from that day for today's post, well that is getting trumped by the deals of the century that I got Friday evening.

I went to Burke's Outlet to see if I could find a pair of sandals or wedges to replace my worn out ones.
Of course, the clothing clearance section caught my eye on the way to the shoe department.  I looked around for a few and was excited to find a nice black blazer that was marked down 70%, so it was only $3.  Score!  Well, then I headed on over to the shoes where a pair of yellow sandals caught my eye on the clearance wall.  Original price was $14.99, but was stamped with a green stamp..which the sign showed as being representative of 95% off.  Say what?!?!  At the register she rang up my 2 finds, gave me an additional 15% off for being a member of their savings club.   
Grand total....(wait for it)....$3.42 including tax.   
The yellow makes me happy!  :o)

As if that wasn't enough..I walked next door to It's Fashion and scored some cute jewelry for 99 cents each.

THEN I stopped at Family Dollar to grab a couple things for the house, I got these cute shoes for $1.

Total for all my awesome finds...$10.86!!

I'm still in shock!  You can't even do that thrifting!  Craziness!! 

Happy Thursday, y'all!!
