Background on Blondie

Well, my first attempt in the blog-o-sphere failed miserably. I quickly found out how uninteresting I was when I had absolutely nothing in my life to blog about. I'm not a mom, a wife and sadly, I really have no definable hobbies. So, this time around, I'm going to see if a "theme" will increase my chances of success. Cue "The Bargain Blonde" aka yours truly.

Believe it or not, there is one thing I'm passionate about besides reality TV. And that my friends, is finding a steal. I don't know what it is. Maybe I inherited it from my mother, or maybe it became a matter of survival when I found out how expensive toilet paper, razors (GASP) and my beloved cable boxes + 2 DVRS was post-college. Yes, 2 DVRs and I live alone. It's very necessary. There are areas in my life I obviously splurge and my cable package is definitely one of them. Bachelor Pad ... check.

You can call me cheap. I, however, prefer frugal. I just can't bring myself to pay full price. Why would I spend $280 on a pair of designer jeans when I can go to TJMaxx and score some for $60? It just doesn't make sense. Do I care if the pair of Citizens I bought at TJMaxx are last year's style? No. Do a lot of girls my age? Probably. Am in over my head in credit card debt? No. Are they?? Most likely.

I'll stick to my discount stores if that means I don't end up like Teresa "Prostitution WHORE-UH" and Juicy Joe Guidice. I mean, $11 million in debt? No thanks. Maybe if she spent a little less time at Posh and took a hint from my home girl NeNe (fellow Maxxinista), she wouldn't have to be in the hot seat explaining her Bankruptcy petition to Andy Cohen and the rest of American. Just sayin.

So now I begin my bargain blogging journey. Stick with me my friends, you may just realize cheap doesn't mean crappy. There are so many finds out there if you just have some patience and exercise a little resourcefulness.

  1. Yea! Back in business. Can't wait to read more.

  2. I am right there with you. I visit TJ Maxx on a regular basis and it's nearly impossible for me to walk out of there empty handed! Nothing makes me happier than finding an awesome deal! AND....I totally agree...Cheap DOES NOT have to mean crappy. You can put an outfit together for cheap and still look like a million bucks!
