Yesterday we drove down to Bellingham,Washington. We wanted to see if the the savings was worth it. Well let me tell you, it was. I have been wanting to get some new boots and some good walking shoes. Here in Abbotsford there isnt much to choose from. We have The Bay, Sears, Wal-mart, Zellers and a few smaller shoe stores. I have been to them all and found nothing I really want to buy. Well I did find a pair of boots for 130.00, but I just didnt want to spend that much. I was really surprised at the big selection of shoes in Bellingham. Bellis Fair Mall has about 5 shoe stores and then there are the 5 anchor stores that also have shoes. We went to them all.

We tried on at least a dozen shoes in each store. Finally found boots at Kohl’s and shoes for Gregg and I found my walking shoes. The boots I got would have cost about 90.00 at home, I got these for 30.00! Same with the shoes, we paid half the price. We also stopped at Walmart and I bought a winter puffy coat for 10 bucks! It would of cost about 50.00 at home. We definitely saved money.

So, I want to go back! There was so much to look at but we just didnt have the time. I know we will be going back soon. We both will need runners soon.  I did notice that there were some items that were priced the same as at home. Make-up and some brands of clothes were maybe a buck cheaper, so I didnt buy any.

Maybe mom will want to go next week? Hey sis! you want to go too?

    You do know that I’m in the middle of moving, right?
    Give me another week or two, OK?
