Adventures in Shopping: I Love Ross! (Dress For Less, that is)

One of my favorite places to look for bargains is Ross Dress For Less. They have a vast selection of clothing of all sizes and styles, and they have a number of housewares, kitchen, and decor items. I've bought items from every single department in this store, but I've been most impressed with the deals I've gotten on jeans, shorts, and capris. I can usually find really cute stuff for $15 or less, which is awesome if you're on a tight budget.

I also love their housewares stuff, and I enjoy looking through their picture frames and photo albums, and if you're in to organizing, they have great deals on baskets and stuff.

My husband also likes this store. He loves athetic shorts and jerseys, and he especially loves Adidas and Nike stuff, and he's found some good deals on these. Last trip he was looking for a pair of comfortable shoes to wear for work, and he was pleasantly surprised to find a very stylish and comfortable pair of Dr. Martens for $30. (They would have normally sold for over $100) Overall, I'd have to say that this is the best deal we've ever gotten. The cashier was even commenting on what a great deal we were getting and how great the shoes looked....but I think she thought we were a little crazy when my husband said he was going to wear the shoes for work.

Last trip I also bought something really cute for myself, which I think all my baking, homemaking, blogger friends will love! It's this lovely Butterfly Apron:

I always have to check out the back of the store to see if they have any nice kitchen or household items, and this last trip, I was really surpised to find a stack of aprons. They've never had these before at any of the locations where I shop. It may be a new item that they're going to carry regularly, or it may be a limited time thing. Whichever the case, I was really happy to find these.

Each apron is made of cotton, and is one size fits most. They all tie around the waist and around the neck, and they have a single pocket. And they had several colors and designs available at my location. (I remember seeing a couple of different flower patterns and also a polka dot one.)

I've looked around at aprons on the internet. The cheapest ones I have found are around $20, though many are $30, $40, or even $50. So I was very pleased to find the ones at Ross for only $7. If you're in the market to purchase an apron, you may want to check them out.
