So, this savings was a LOT of fun! Listen up...
I'm going to Denver this Christmas to share it with my family. It's cold there since I'm
There were a couple of mornings where I wore a running jacket and gloves because it was rather cool outside. I shed them after a while as I warmed up, but I was happy to have them.
Looking through the current Land's End catalog, I spied cute beanie hats.
Well, I wanted some gloves too. I found those as well here.
cashmere ones, that one hurt my face!!!
Did I dare look for earbands with Land's End?
So I was looking at spending $78.50, not including the $5.95 shipping. Grand total of $84.45. Gulp.
The next day, I had a project to do at Walmart. Those are usually pretty good merchandising projects. Once I finished, I was walking down the center 'action alley' and out of the corner of my eye, I saw hats and gloves hanging on a shelf. What? Stopping dead in my tracks, you bet I looked! I saw PINK!

Can I just show you the prices?
Cost difference is a savings of $78.05.
OK, it is very obvious that the quality is a BIG difference. However, since I'm only wearing these for a week at Christmas and maybe a few times running this winter, why do I need to spend over $25, much less, $85 for winter items!???
I love my Land's End shoes and mock turtlenecks. They are quality, good stuff. Sometimes going with the name brand just doesn't work for me. And, hey, can you just not dig those colors??!!!
