Frugal Eyeglasses!!!!

I am SO excited!  :)

I finally have new glasses!  First time in about 16 years, I would say!  :)



The best part is that I paid less than $10 for them!
That included shipping them to my house!  :)

Woo hoo!

Now, just to let you know, I wear contact lenses.  But I wear my glasses in the morning and at night.  My glasses were so old!  I never wanted to be seen in them!  :)  Not that I ever want to be seen in my glasses...but, at least now I won't be so embarrassed!  LOL!!!  :)

When MyPoints sent me a coupon code to use at
Goggles 4 U Eyeglasses, I thought, "what do I have to lose?"  Ten dollars, if they don't work for me....but I sure have a lot to gain, if they do!

I uploaded a photo of myself and "tried on" several different frames.  I compared the measurements to my current glasses (and my teenagers) so that I could get a better idea if they would fit like I thought they would.

I found a pair I liked, and I entered my prescription and my pupil distance.  This is the part where it helps to have someone measure it for you.  It is important to get this correct, so the prescription lenses are focused in the correct place.

I entered code, GOGGLES4U (not sure if this code still works) and my total came to $9.98!!!!!   Wow!  Even if the code doesn't work, you still can get a complete pair of single vision glasses (with shipping) for as low at $29.99.  That is fantastic!  They have great sales going on all of the time, so just check to see what the current special might be.

The glasses arrived in about a week!  I was so excited when I tried them on and I could see!  LOL!!!

And...my boys thought they looked nice (my husband too)!  :)
