Works for me Jewelry!

So, I've read many a Works For Me Wednesday post but never done one of my own... until now. Hhhhmmmmm.... what to blog about... I have so much to choose from. Aha!
I haven't done this before but was pretty excited about it. A few days ago I was checking out the clearance section at Target. I saw a set of three pairs of green earrings that were really cute. There were two sets on the rack - but one was missing one earring. I really liked the set so I took both up to the checkout. I pointed out the missing earring and asked the checkout guy if I could get extra $ off. The sets were originally $8.99... they were on clearance for $6.28... the guy gave me $4 off for the missing earring. Not bad. So... I took the one earring and added it to a leather necklace that I had already but didn't care for the existing pendant on it. Voila! A new matching necklace and earrings!
I also took a necklace that had a pink stone dangling from a heart and swapped the pink stone for one of the green stones on one of the pairs of earrings. Again, like magic, I had a "new" matching necklace and earrings!
So, the regular price would have been $17.98 (plus tax)... I only paid $8.56 and I didn't just get 5 1/2 pairs of earrings... I got two matching necklace and earring sets (plus 2 1/2 pairs of earrings that I haven't decided what to do with yet). I think I did alright... what do ya think?

Wow, that is so awesome. I think you are even more frugal than me! I'm going to be looking for those cool matching jewelry sets at church!

I don't think I would have remembered that I had something at home to use with it and would have left them there. Great job and a great deal!
