Last month my dad and I drove up to Portland, Oregon to find him a place. Now that he’s single and retired, he is free to move whenever, wherever. While I was wearing leggings and yoga pants 80% of the trip, I did wear “real” clothes the day we went to Ikea. Man I love that place. And in Oregon there’s no sales tax (!) so I bought a set of wine glasses for $4.99. And I paid $4.99. Crazy.

Speaking of Macy’s, I’m totally in love with department stores like that. I could spend all day in them. I probably have in the past. It’s fun to pick out the latest fashions but it’s even better when you can scoop up a great deal on something! This is why so many people won’t make a purchase until they head to a promo code and discount website looking for Macy’s deals – when they see it, they’ll be ready to bag themselves a bargain. Is there a better feeling in the world than this?
*Trashcan satchel: my boyfriend’s brother was this guy for Halloween two years ago and bought this purse from Target specifically for his costume. The day after Halloween, he threw it in the trash. THE TRASH! With the tags still on it. My dumpster divin’ boyfriend saw it on top of trash and after he wiped off the spaghetti and meatballs from the night before and gave it to me–totally kidding, it was clean. Eww, I wouldn’t want a dirty satchel.
