I love discount stores: Filene’s Basement, Ross, TJ Maxx, Marshall’s, and AJ Wright. My most recent deal was this tote by Steve Madden I got from Filene’s Basement on Connecticut Ave in DC.
I don’t think I’d normally be a fan of the chains but for some reason, I’m into it. The bag also has two handles plus a longer strap. I’d like the strap to be a little bit longer but for $30, I won’t complain. Steve Madden originally wanted $98 for this and Filene’s wanted $40. I got it for $33 with tax because I joined Filene’s Fan Club and they gave me 20% off for joining. Supposedly, you get member-only discounts and insider info in this free program. You can join on the Filene’s Basement website and as soon as you sign up, you receive the printable coupon.
