I was so excited to find out that Sears was having a clearance sale on their web site. My older son reminds me of the Incredible Hulk some days when he comes down wearing shirts that are obviously too small! He's outgrown most of what I got at rummage and second hand stores last summer (which I had hoped would last for a while!) So, with great prices listed for the Sears sale, all I could think was, what great timing!
So, I spend about 15 minutes going through the clearance section on the web site, adding anything that seemed my son would like. Tshirts and hoodies mostly, from $0.99 to $2.99. I figured when I got to the end, I'd pick my favorites. Wait a minute, you're saying, isn't this supposed to be a post about a Frugal FOUL? Those are great prices! Well, that's what I thought! I reviewed my shopping cart, did a little editing. I think I ended up choosing seven items, for a total of $21 with shipping. That's great! Happy, happy, frugal shopping. Then, I hit Checkout.
Dismayed, I looked at my monitor. Almost every single item was out of stock. Only one item was available. And the shipping was $10.95 for one item! What a terrible, terrible inventory system. I did try, in vain, to pick different items, but to no avail. It was so frustrating! Sears' web site earns a Frugal Foul from me!
