Shopping wins and frustrations!

So a few weeks ago, I used a gift card to buy me 2 pairs of jeans at Kmart. The jeans were 27.99 and 17.49 each. Well when I put them on at home I really didn't like how they looked so I decided to take them back.

Well tonight, we headed out to Kmart as Bill needed some new jeans and some new tennis shoes. Kmart had men's jeans for as little as $10.99 each regular price! All their women's jeans were at least $24.99 or more. I found a pair of capris I liked, but was not going to spend $26.99 on them!  Seriously, why are men's jeans so much less than women's???? Frustrating!

Overall, tonight Bill was able to get 2 pairs of jeans, a t-shirt and a pair of tennis shoes for the price I paid for 2 pairs of jeans that I returned. ANNOYING!!!!!

It wasn't all bad though. I have been wanting to get a new comforter for our bed, as the one we have been using is at least 10 years old. I found the perfect one and it was on sale too for $19! It is turquoise on one side and green on the other and matches our sheet set perfectly! I am really happy with it.

Earlier today the kids and I went to our local Goodwill store to see what they had in stock and I will say that I was able to get 2 pairs of pants that I can wear to work,a dress for church, and 2 sweaters for winter that I can wear for work as well.

So it wasn't all bad shopping today...just frustrated over the price of women's jeans versus men's jeans!


  1. I hate that and you are so right. Men's clothes are so much cheaper and they are usually thicker and made with more fabric too! I think women's shirts are totally see-thru these days, probably so you have to buy several and layer them. :) So annoying. Glad you were able to find a good comforter though!
