Friday at The Gap

I get off work early on Fridays during the summer. I have to make up the time by coming in early all week, but it's worth it to get off at noon. Today I headed to the mall to pick up a birthday gift for my beautiful daughter-in-law who celebrates her birthday on the 4th of July! While I was at the mall, I heard my name being called....."Kathy....pssssst....Kathy....come on over here."

I waked around the corner to see where the voice was coming from and there it was....The Gap! HAHA!

I thought I would just go in a take a little peak. I really needed a couple of new t-shirts to wear to work for the rest of the summer. When school is closed, we get to wear whatever we want and my daily choice is jeans, gyms and a t-shirt. Sadly, most of mine are in pretty bad shape.

I headed into the store and almost jumped up and down yelling chee hoo when I saw lots of 40% off signs. I felt like I had hit the jackpot and I didn't even start looking yet! Geez, I love GAP!

I tried on a number of tops. I usually wear a Medium at the Gap....Hmmmmm....this one was too big in a Medium. Tried on the next one in a Medium. Just right. Tried on the next on in a Medium....too small. Hmmmmm. I went out and grabbed a variety of sizes and headed in to try on more. I ended up with 3 smalls, 1 medium and 1 large....what the heck is with that???

Well I had 5 really cute t-shirts in my hand and didn't really want to put any of them back. I looked at the price tags and they had all been marked down a couple of times to what was a pretty darn good price. I decided to just get them all. I really needed them.

I got up to the register and the lady started to ring them up. The price wasn't the price on the ticket....it was 40% off the lowest price on the ticket!!!!! The regular price for the 5 shirts would have been $102. 50 and with the mark downs and the 40% off, they cost me $29.35!

I got 5 Gap t-shirts for $29.35! That is a major....Happy Friday to me!!!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone. Stay safe and have lots of fun....and do something really nice for yourself!

I'm sure I couldn't even wear socks from The Gap. Probably a good thing I can't shop there :). Enjoy your weekend.

Wow Kathy, you are living right! That's an awesome sale. But you're right, what's up with the sizing? I love the gap but haven't scored like that in a long time. Might be time to go have a look around again ;-)

Thanks for your kind comment on my "feeling blue" post. I really appreciate it. Some days things seem to pile up but this to shall pass. Regardless, your support is really meaningful to me.

Have a GREAT July 4th.
