One of my favorite clothing stores is New York & Company, but the reality is that New York & Company is not in my clothing budget. Most of our clothing budget goes to the kids (clearance, coupons and second hand purchases), and my husband and I usually head to the thrift store, if we need any “new” clothes.
However, last year I discovered Twice, an online consignment store, which sells name-brand, high quality, second-hand women’s clothing in great condition. Between coupons, sales and store credits, I have managed to add “new” pieces of clothing to my otherwise dull clothing collection, and I will admit that I love how the clothing makes me feel. Certain brands really do have higher-quality clothing than I am used to, so it is quite a luxury to wear these higher-end brands.
The other day, I received an email with some of the newest additions to the Twice collection of second-hand clothes, and I completely fell in love with this beautiful New York & Company skirt, which turned out to be new with tags. I figured it would be way over my price limit, but it turned out to be $14.95. I mostly wear exercise clothes, as I am at the gym ever day, or I wear skirts, but this one was more of a night-out skirt.
When I clicked through the email, it turned out that someone else already had it in their shopping cart, which meant that I could not buy it. I had $40 in Twice credit (some of which I had received, because Twice made a mistake on my last order…which they fixed at no charge, and then gave me back credit as well), used a 15 percent off Twice coupon from Facebook, and I calculated that I could get free shipping by less than $5 out of pocket.
So, I went through the lower priced pieces in my size, where I of course fell in love with another skirt. I waited, and waited, and waited. and the New York & Company skirt kept being listed as in someone else’s cart. When I shop at Twice, I usually put all the items that I like in my cart, and then I start sorting through them, until I find the pieces that I love.You just need to make sure that you add a new item to the cart every once in a while, as your cart expires 60 minutes from the time that you last added something to your cart.
Just as I was about to give up on the skirt, I went to check one last time. Voila, there it was…not in anyone else’s cart, but instead in my own shopping cart in a matter of a click with the mouse.
