Just Putting It Out There…Frugalicious Frenzy

Okay friends and fellow bloggers….this is a yearly event that frugal people die for!  This coming weekend is the “NCJW/Cleveland’s 45th  Designer Dress Days Sale” which will begin on October 25, 2013.  It will be held at the The Mandel Jewish Community Center located at 26001 South Woodland Road Beachwood, OH 44122 !!!!!

For those frugal divas who love designer fashion but refuse to pay those ridiculous retail prices for it…can now get it at a fraction of a fraction of the cost!!!!  You can find designers from Burberry, St. john, Chanel, Carlisle, Escada, to Armani.  There are accessories, jewelry, furs and fur accessories (I don’t support the killing of animals to provide luxury coverings for our bodies…but honestly we have worn fur since Adam and Eve…I’m just sayin”!!)

You can find “new and gently worn upscale resale at phenomenal prices, a shopping experience different from all others“, states their ad in the MaxValues magazine.  In the current ad (which I received this week) there is a coupon!!!….$5 off a $50 purchase!!! (I provided a link to their website so you can get a coupon too 🙂

Now there is something a little different about this sale…the first day of the sale is October 25th….this is called the preview sale and costs $20 to attend! (which the coupon is not valid for).

However, the sale days, which run from October 27th-October 29th offers free admission.  But get this…..on October 28th,,,everything is 20% off….and even better, on October 29th..everything is 50% off!!

Now you can look at that two ways….is all the good stuff gone in the first day? or do you bear down and wait for the 50% off day and pick through what is leftover?  Choices, choices, choices!

The hours: October 25, 2013 from 10am-4pm, October 27, 2015 from 10am-5pm, and October 28 & 29, 2013 from 10am-8pm.

The proceeds from this sale support the National Council of Jewish Women/Cleveland Community Service Projects and Advocacy Initiatives. If you want more information go to their website, which I provided a link to above.

Happy  Frrrreeeee Hunting!



Frugalicious Week …….Day 3 @ Carly’z Corner

Another frugal way to shop is, resale shops.  One of my favorite resale stores that I love to shop at, is the American Cancer Society Discovery Shops.                                                          DSC green sweater

“Shop at your nearest Discovery Shop. American Cancer Society Discovery Shops help support the fight against cancer through the sale of high quality, gently used, donated merchandise. For over 40 years, the Society has owned and operated these specialty resale stores, featuring items such as clothing, accessories, jewelry, furniture, artwork, antiques, collectibles, and other household items, ” (taken directly from their website).

I have found some unique one of a kind pieces here such as White House|Black Market, Talbot, Donna Karen..and not only for myself but for my girls….such brands as Justice, and the Gap at about a 90% discount from retail store prices!

The American Cancer Society Discovery Shops also have a frequent flyer card and for every card you fill up you receive $10 off your next purchase!

The Discovery shops are not only in Ohio but it appears that they have multiple locations, even in California.  So check out their website to see if you have one of these amazing resale shops in your area.
