Bump it and run!

November 15th, 2013 · No Comments

I am a bargain shopper. I hate to pay retail, in fact it physically hurts sometimes.  I love a discount store; HomeGoods, Big Lots, Ross…these are 3 of my favorite stores for shopping as I know I will often find something unique, attractive and cheap!

Imagine my excitement when I saw a commercial for a brand new Marshall’s store holding a grand opening this week! It just so happened that we (the office) made a house call for a client. Afterwards, I was free to go on home rather than go back to the office. It also just so happens that this client’s home is right in the area where this new Marshall’s store is located! Double Bonus!!

I arrive at the shopping center before 4pm (on a Thursday) and the parking lot is already jam packed. The store is also jam packed! I slowly meander in and out of each and every aisle just to get an idea of what was available (this was not a full-fledged shopping trip as the kids are still preparing their Christmas lists). Suddenly I notice a woman shadowing me…she has a Bump It! ponytail, plain camel top coat and the saddest pair of mousey oxfords I have ever seen. So sorry dear.

As I breathe in the intoxicating aroma of the new shoe section, I pick up a Betsey Johnson black suede pump with the most adorable bow on the toe. (I could definitely put this beauty on my list for Santa!) I put the demo back in its place and move on when the Bump It! Lady quickly scoops up that same shoe, then drops a pair into her cart.  Ok, I didn’t need yet another pair of black pumps anyway. Looking at her sad oxfords, she needs those pretty shoes more than I. Good for her.

As I walk down the bed and bath aisle, I’m that person than runs my hand along every soft towel and plush bath mat (when you buy new, ALWAYS wash them before you use them). I kid you not, I look up just long enough to catch Bump It! Lady doing the exact same thing! You go girl.

I make my final stop at a rack of leather jackets. Well…turns out they are listed as Vegan Leather…to normal humans that really means cheap pleather. I have no use for this crap ever, unfortunately I may have lingered too long reading the labels and cringing in disappointment as Bump It! Lady scooped up a hideous green-plastic-faux-military-ugly-fest of a jacket.

Well dear, at least now those oxfords are not the worst thing in your closet.

Oh no! What if she’s an elf? Or a Santa’s helper?
