Yesterday and today I went shopping for some clothes. I went to second hand stores because I can't see spending big bucks for something I will probably not be able to wear more than 2 or 3 months. I bought 3 pair of pants, a skirt, a cardigan, 4 blouses and 2 jackets. One jacket was really nice and coordinates well with one of the pairs of pants I bought. The most expensive item I bought was around $8 and for all of it I spent Less than $45. When I arrived at work today I was told that the store I work for is closing..... :( I love my job. I guess I just bought interview clothes. Its a good thing the best ones I bought fit really well, just needing a bit of hemming- I hate being short. A couple of the items were a bit tight but too nice to pass up since I've tweaked my plan and intend to start losing again. DH has been trying to get me to apply for a job where he works, I guess I will be filling out a bunch of applications and might as well try there, too. The best thing about where he works is they have an on site gym for employees and an outdoor walking path with hills that they keep clear year round and they have a wellness incentive program. Hope I am qualified for an opening soon.

    Awesome on the good shopping finds! :)
    I just went shopping this week for an upcoming trip (I work from home, so, haven't had to worry about clothes as I go through, tank tops and running pants with ties have gotten me through just fine.).

    I'm sorry to hear about the store closing. Best of luck on your applications and interviews. Oooh, a gym and other wellness initiatives sound nice.

    I hate being short too. But, I suppose I should be used to it by now. LOL

    I hope things work out for you on the job front. This may work out very well for you in the end!!

    I find some of my best stuff at Goodwill.

    DH's employer has a very enlightened attitude. Sounds like a great place to me.

    Good luck with the job search.
