Frugal Find: Php200 Sale Items from H&M

If there’s an H&M branch that I love visiting, it’s the one at Robinsons Magnolia. Why? Because I always see sale items there at low prices. How low? About Php200 low. Take a look at the top and the shoes I bought there both priced at just Php200 (or almost US$2).

This pair of shoes (are they what you call casual loafers?) screams summer. I liked the orange-y color and the embroidered details plus they were in my size so I got them! (The other sizes were still sold at their regular prices.)

Frugal Find: Rubi Shoes, 3 for P1,200

I got introduced to Rubi Shoes through Cotton On. They carry Rubi shoes in their stores and after buying two pairs (camel wedges and white sandals) in 2013 –which are both still alive today –I made it a point to check out Cotton On occasionally for new shoe designs. (My fave branches are Cotton On Rob Magnolia and Rob Manila.)

When I found out Rubi Shoes has stand-alone stores in Rob Magnolia and Alabang Town Center (ATC), I’d visit them whenever I’d make a trip to those malls.

Frugal Find: H&M Basic Cardigans

When H&M opened stores here in Manila, I initially didn’t mind it. I thought it was just another sushal brand that I won’t be able to afford. I was wrong. Just like Uniqlo, it sells high-quality yet reasonably-priced clothes pala.

Have you seen their home items? Ang gaganda, grabe! But I’m not sharing about those and instead, the two basic cardigans I bought from H&M – Robinsons Manila a couple of weeks ago. Priced at P599 per piece, these cardigans are dainty! Touching one for the very first time, I could tell the fabric was of high quality. Even the stitches were perfectly aligned.

Good Finds from Saizen-The District, Imus

After 10 years, we were able to visit The District again last, last Sunday afternoon. We actually attended the birthday celeb of a friend’s son held at Blackbeard’s Seafood Island, one of the restaurants at that mall. After a long, sumptuous lunch using our bare hands to eat, I asked the hubby to check out Saizen with me before we went home and he agreed.

I only had one item in mind and that was a belt. I bought two basic belts (made from faux leather) at Saizen before and loved how sturdy they were. I lost one of them and decided to get a replacement. When I saw the lovely belts on offer at Saizen, I had to buy not just one but four! It was one of those moments when my EQ was at its lowest. I didn’t hesitate to grab four belts and even added more items in my basket. Haha.

Saving While Shopping

As a self-confessed cheapskate and a trying-hard frugal person, I try to stick to my budget every time I’m out shopping for our home, my husband or myself. I admit to doing impulsive shopping on occasions, though. But then, I still make sure that I get full value for my money.

The idea of saving while shopping thrills me. Promos like buy 1 take 1, up to 70% off and the likes appeal to me like they’re some sort of pampering services waiting to be enjoyed. It must be due to the fact that I always challenge myself not just to stick to my budget but if possible, spend less than what I intended to as well.
