Bargain shopping is not exactly an easy undertaking. It takes patience, comfy shoes, and a serious dedication to browsing—not to mention a willingness to try, try again when you walk away empty-handed. Seriously, someone explain to us why this isn’t an Olympic sport!
To ease your frustration (and the strain on your wallet), we spent all yesterday scouring Target, Old Navy, JC Penney, Kohl’s, Walmart and other big-box/discount department stores to bring you the best of the budget finds. No more wading through rack after rack hoping to score a gem—we’ve rounded up the best each place has to offer right here. If you’re in need of a little retail pick-me-up this dreary Tuesday afternoon, consider one of these scores a guilt-free purchase.
