Intro | Needs | Return | Off Season | Stylin'

I cannot pass a clearance section, rack, or table without at least peeking. Part of it comes from a lifelong need to save money; the other part is the thrill of cashing in on a wonderful bargain. I’ve scored some fabulous finds and learned a few secrets while cruising the clearance corner.

But remember, not every bargain is a good purchase, no matter what the price tag reads.
