What can $40 buy you?

Well, I don't know what it can buy you... but my mom and I turned forty bucks into four pairs of shoes!! Yes, you read that correctly FOUR PAIRS OF SHOES!!

We had to venture to Auburn on Monday to drop my car off at the dealership to have some new keys made [that's a story in itself but I will spare you for now]. It also happened that on that same day my aunt was having knee surgery so we wanted to go by and see her and even take her a little "get well soon" prize.

We headed to the mall to purchase the "get well prize" and happen enter through Belk, which turned into a bit of browsing for our own personal interests. We eventually ended up in the shoes, but had no intentions of purchasing any shoes... when all of a sudden a sweet sales associate said to us, "Have you looked at the shoes? They are 40% off the already low clearance prices."

We were sold.

We looked in every box on every table with our size. Mom settled on two pairs and I was able to find two pairs.

The two pair I bought are very much "a summer sandal" but I will start next spring out on the right foot...[get it? foot.]

I almost purchased the above yellow shoes to take with me on my honeymoon back in May. I opted not to purchase them because I had spent so much money already on different items to take with us... and yellow wedges aren't exactly a necessity... or are they?

I actually have these on today... and I've gotten lots of compliments on them. (It might have something to do with the fact that I keep saying things like... "Hey look at my new shoes! I got a great deal on them!")

Mom was able to score a couple of pairs which will ease into Fall better than the ones I purchased. These Kensie Girls flats (above) will look great with a pants suit for work!

And the forth pair that mom got are great peep toes flats with a bow on them. I've seen on the fashion blogs that bows are in, so I told mom she needed to go for it. (I can't find a picture of the fourth pair but I will update when I do).

Total mom and I saved roughly $200 on our purchases! You can't beat that with a stick. I love a good deal!!!
