16 gifts for mom under $100

With Mother’s day just around the corner, if you haven’t yet figured out what you’re getting for mom, here are some great ideas under $100 for mom. Of course, it helps if you know what kind of stuff your own mom likes. My mom tends to ask for things like cheap cologne (perfume) and powder and lotion all the time. And sometimes bird seed. Yep. You heard me right. She has actually put that on Christmas/Birthday lists before so she can feed the birds. And then she goes and buys all the stuff that would actually make cool gifts to give her for herself, so all we’re left to buy are the same few things over and over again. Makes for a hard time shopping for her!

So happy shopping for mom this week. If you’re really still stuck by the end of the week, there’s always flowers and chocolates!  😉

And Happy Mother’s Day to all you mom’s out there! I hope you’re spoiled rotten by your family this coming weekend.

Clearance sales, Butterfly tee & Star shorts #fashionfriday

I love shopping clearance racks because I hate paying full price for anything I buy. And even a sale price isn’t good enough for me. I want a bargain! I’m looking for a super good deal when I’m shopping.

A couple of weeks ago, I got one of those ten dollars off anything in the store  post cards from Khols. I love those things! It really is good off anything in the store – even the clearance racks. And, because I like a good deal, I went directly to the clearance racks. I’ve got to get the most bang from my bucks as possible.

I found several things I liked and hauled them all into the fitting rooms. One by one, I weeded all but three items out. The two that were the best deal were still under $10 total, but the third item was $16.20. Hmmm. I like deals even better than that, but I had the $10 off coupon, so I finally decided to get all three items. I ended up with a dress for $6, and butterfly tee for $2.80, and the shorts with $10 off with my savings postcard. If I had a Khols credit card, I could have saved an additional 10%-30% with a scratch off card they have at the registers. I usually just bring my mom along so I can have her use her discount for having a credit card if there is one, but, this was an impromptu trip when I realized my 10 off card was expiring soon, so I took off quickly and didn’t stop to drag her along for additional savings. Ha.

I still don’t have pictures of me in the dress, but I did go out and get photos in the butterfly tee and star shorts – while practicing doing my own photos for days when I don’t have help photographing items for product reviews. They have a nice back-to-school feel to them, so I thought I’d post them now for all of you who are going back to school or have kids about to go back to school or have already started back to school. I’ll try to get photos of the dress for another Fashion Friday. I’d put a link to them on Kohl’s on here, but I can’t even find them on the website any more, so I’d guess they are gone now, or you could scour your local Kohl’s clearance racks to find similar items.
