Now you know I’m going to love any state where one of their most visited locations is a shopping outlet mall. And this isn’t just any outlet mall. This is the Rodeo Drive of Outlets. The discounts are insane, the number of stores is mind-blowing and the possibility for maxing out your credit card is extremely likely. This is Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise, Florida. Oh, and it’s just a hop, skip and a jump for any one visiting Fort Lauderdale…. which is how I came to be introduced to this shopping soulmate.
My second hour into my nine hour adventure at Sawgrass Mills, I found myself loaded down with bags and convinced that this had to turn into an opportunity to share the knowledge. So, out came the phone and on came the selfies in fitting rooms. And that, folks, is how the FFG Sawgrass Mills Shopping Haul was born. The rest, as they say, is history.
Below you will find an accurate representation of my day out in the shopping wild. I dodged tempting bargains in search of true and worthy discounts. I hunted down items and ran for them before they could be snatched up by other hunters on the prowl. I even forgot to eat for nine hours on the go (I mean this never happens) and the idea of sitting down might as well have been illegal. I was a woman on the go, with arms of steel from carrying too many shopping bags, and a face that said “how on earth am I going to get all of this stuff back to England?”
Here are the bargains found at Sawgrass Mills. Should you choose to visit, may the shopping force be with you….
