Giveaway: $50 gift card to Ross Dress for Less

by Melody on April 5, 2011

I was recently contacted by a representative from Ross Dress for Less with information about their Spring Dress Event running through April 22nd.  They very generously offered me a $50 gift card to check out the sale for myself.  I have to confess, it’s been YEARS since I shopped at Ross.

As most of you know, I have recently lost some weight after Little Dude #2 was born (thanks to Jillian Michaels) and I seriously have nothing to wear.  Nothing.  No pants, shorts, capris, sweats.  Nothing.  Not to mention, the weather is getting warmer and most of my clothes are either maternity or post-baby.  You know what I’m talking about.  I was SO excited to go find a few things for myself!

I was pleasantly surprised to find their prices are REALLY low.  The only thing I bought that was over $10 was a pair of shoes, and they were only $13.  

I tried really hard to talk myself into buying a pair of snakeskin heels, but couldn’t remember a time in recent history that I would need to wear something like that.  That being said, I’m still debating going back and getting them.  My husband and I have a wedding to go to.  In Montana.  In October.  Perfect snakeskin heel wearing weather?  I think so.

After repeatedly steering myself away from the kid’s section (I kept trying to convince myself that I should buy shoes for my son), I found some amazing deals!

For everything in the picture above, I spent just $64.  That’s TWO dresses, a pair of Chinese Laundry flats, two shirts and a pair of workout pants.  My original plan was to buy both dresses, try them on at home and then return one.  However, once I tried them on, I fell in love and couldn’t part with either one.  

So I would have spent only $54.  I’m blaming it on my husband, who was sufficiently impressed that I had even bought a dress in the first place. 

On to the giveaway..

Ross Dress for Less is offering one of my readers a $50 gift card of their very own!  You don’t have to buy clothes.  You can buy toys, pillows, sheets, shoes.  Whatever your heart desires..

TO ENTER (REQUIRED): Leave a comment and tell me what you would look for at Ross if you won.  Do you need a little wardrobe refresher?  Does your couch just NEED new pillows?

Disclosure: Just in case it wasn’t clear, Ross did give me a $50 gift card to give their store a try.  All the opinions are my own.  I am outrageously frugal by nature, so even with the gift card, I only bought items that I would have spent my own money on.  

It was a huge blessing to be able to add a few things to my wardrobe.  My husband and I are going away together this weekend and I don’t think he would have appreciated me walking around in sweats that look like they could fit a few extra people in them.
