February always seems like such a drag. Anyone else agree?! The blustery weather and the fact that you haven't seen grass in awhile can make a girl go crazy! And according to Mr. Punxsutawney Phil, there is going to be more winter then I'd like!... Here's to hoping he's wrong. Sooooooo as a bit of a pick me up, I've decided to do another Frugal Find Challenge!
Being cooped up in the winter usually leads me to being entertained by LOTS of unnecessary online shopping and of course shopping in stores. Oh gosh, who am I kidding?! I always find an occasion to shop! I love a good find and know many of you do as well! I've gotten some amazing deals in these recent winter months that I am going to share a little bit later.
Hopefully, you've been able to apply some of my Fashionably Frugal tips to make recent shopping trips a success! I love hearing from readers about amazing steals they've scored, so here's your chance to shine!
I'm giving away a $50 gift card to my fav T.J.Maxx & Marshall's, to one lucky fashionista!
Here's how to participate in the challenge:

Now to tell you about my recent haul at Marshall's!... Unfortunately (or fortunately, whatever way you look at it haha) a brand new Marshall's just opened on the corner of my block! It's VERY dangerous. Conveniently located on my walk to the gym, lol. The other morning I stopped by looking for a jacket and I left with wayyyyy more than a jacket. It always works that way, doesn't it?! I needed a new light weight jacket for a recent ski trip, so I was SO happy to find a lot of winter items on clearance! When I walked in there were tables of clearance boots and racks of winter clothing, so stuffed you could barely walk in between the aisles! There were so many great deals, but I had to limit myself to the best bargains. I ended up finding a VIneyard Vines light weight down jacket for $20! I literally praised Jesus when I laid eyes on it! I also ended up getting a silk lace tank for $4, a lace up dress for $6, Sam Edelman sparkly kitten heels for $17, and another pair of Franco Sarto suede over the knee boots for $30! All for around $80! Can't beat that! Especially when the Vineyard Vines coat is normally retailed at $300!
This challenge is inspired by this amazing find! Now is the best time to shop winter sales! This proves you don't have to wait till the off season to get the best prices!
Frugal Tip: Shop during the ALMOST off season to get the best deals!
May the sales be ever in your favor!
