#frugalfashionista: black (and white) Friday deals!

   
Banana republic swoops me in again. I could not pass up their amazing mix of black and white prints and textures. Not only were they on sale, they were on double sale! Sale prices plus the additonal 40% off. Even my boyfriend walked away happy with 50% off original price sweaters. 

What fashions did you guys find this Black Friday?

Much love – MA

#frugalfashionista : toaster coaster

This is what happens when you’re told to wait 20 mins for your photo to develop and you need to kill time. You usually end up buying things just to buy them. Pointless to go home and come back, so go ahead and kill time. I peered around the old holiday leftover products and noticed this “beverage warmer” in the stocking stuffers section of walgreens pharmacy. I picked up the package and turned it over in my hands as I debated it’s utility.

My boyfriend and I are avid coffee drinkers. We are constantly popping in k cups at home and for the office. However, if you are a coffee drinker you know that every so often your cup sits for a while and when you finally go back to drink it, it’s suddenly cold, especially when you’re almost done with it. What a perfect solution this could be, and why not, a cute goofy extra to give to my boyfriend since he’s constantly walking to the microwave to reheat his cup.

When the cashier rang me out what I thought would be $5 actually came out to $1.50, after Christmas sale! So I went back and bought myself one for the office.

Guess the kill time was worth it after all. Should save my boyfriend and I several trips to the microwave! An electric coaster that keeps drinks toastier.

Stay toasty!
Much love – MA
