Snow, snow, go away, don't come back another day
On a happier note, I went to the mall last night. I am done Christmas shopping but I had so many good coupons, I couldn't resist. $15 off a $15 purchase, $10 off a $10 purchase and free item up to $13 when you spend $10. I consider myself a savvy shopper, but even I was impressed with the results:
1. $50 sweater, on sale for $40, with $15 off coupon = $25
2. $24 candle, on sale for $12, with $10 off coupon = $2
3. Two $13 lotions, on sale 2 for $10, plus got a $11 body wash free = $10
Grand total: $110 worth of stuff for $37.
As the savviest shopper, Staci Reynolds of Examiner.com and ReynFashions, says, "Don't buy it just because the price tag is right." I didn't. The sweater I already own in grey and purple argyle and I love it, so I bought the solid blue version. You can always use free body wash, use a candle as a gift and either use or gift the lotion.
