Another Plato's Shopping Trip- Best Deal Ever!!

Remember a few weeks ago I posted about my Plato's Closet shopping trip where I paid about $28 for 5 tops and a pair of shorts? I also mentioned an upcoming grab bag sale I was hoping to take advantage of...well, that sale was today...and I most certainly took advantage of it!! The deal was for $10, you could get whatever you could fit in a bag. Now I wasn't sure what size bag to expect BUT after moving cross country with only what we could fit in a Camaro, or on the plane...well, packing a lot of clothes into small spaces is somewhat of a specialty of mine!! So, here is some of what I got at this wonderful sale:

The whole load!!

Lots of tank tops!! I don't usually do spaghetti straps or strapless, but with this crazy heat, I figure they'll be great for  around the house...I'll have to get a few new cardigans for when we go out!!!

Some cute new tops!!!

And a few more!!!

This cute little dress...it's definitely going to need a cardigan as well...maybe some leggings too, but I love it so I couldn't pass it up!!

Some jeans (I'd have gotten more, but they just don't fold up as small!!).

These adorable earrings...how cute are they?

A few pairs of sleep shorts- I'm wearing the pink now and they are VERY comfy!!

These were all new with tags! Their total retail value was over $80!!!

I got to the store a bit early, before they opened...and its a good things I did because it got crazy busy...and I don't do crowds well!!! The bags were smaller than expected, think about the size of a newspaper bag, but maybe a little bit wider and quite a bit shorter...I ended up with 4 bags full though- a total of 30 tops, 4 pairs of jeans, 3 dresses, 2 pairs of sleep shorts and a pair of earrings. I also found a cute pink iPhone case that wasn't on sale that I had to buy (I'm using my hubby's hand-me-down iPhone 3 until it decides to kick the bucket and they're hard to find cases for!!) Altogether I paid...right around $45!! That was a savings from their original marked prices (which were of course already a great savings!) of $256!!! And remember I said the new clothes would have been $80+...holy cow!! Now, I'm good at finding the bargains, but I even shocked myself! And looking at these photos, I'm shocked I got all this in those little bags!! I would definitely say the crowd, the 20 minute checkout and waiting for about 10-15 minutes in the excessive heat was certainly worth it, don't you think!? I can't wait to put together some cute outfits with all my new finds!!
