I used to dislike clearance shopping and before you judge me let me tell you why. You spend time picking over things that a store is trying to get rid of... and most of the time they don't have my size if it's clearance clothes and I never get there early enough to get first pick of the items that are priced to move out the door.

Just to confess I've been clearance shopping the last two nights at Target and I've picked up some very cool items and well below retail value. I guess it takes a little planning ahead and knowing what you need not what you want. I found some great picture frames, candles and even some new clothes and saved a bunch of money. So to all you ladies that know how to rock the clearance isle, I completely understand now.
