Give it to me

Monday, August 11, 2008

The BF is way more responsible than I am when it comes to spending money on frivolous things. I feel that it's built into a woman's DNA to spend oodles of money on make up, shoes and those designer purses. (Or maybe it's just mine.) When I see the half-yearly sale or pass a Coach outlet, I can't help but find an amazing deal. Just a month ago, I found this Coach bag from earlier this season at 60 percent off. (Actually, I can't find this year's one but it looks similar - only slightly brighter.) I basically stole it!

However, since I'm making a conscience effort to pay down my credit cards, I've only been allowing myself certain cash only splurges. That summer bag being one of them this season. I've really made an effort to purchase everything on sale and with this slumping economy, it's definitely helping my closet out. Thanks, Mr. President!

Last week, I signed up for the best and worst e-mail - Shop it to me. I finally have my own little online personal shopper - free of charge. I was able to pick between which brands, all of course had to do with something designer, and I receive e-mail updates with all my sale items. I'm talking Michael Kors, BCBG, French Connection, Kate Spade and Nine West - my fave all time shoes because a 9.5 fits me every time. I've already received four e-mails since Friday and I've only peeked because I'm supposed to be saving money! Damn, why do I get myself into this!

I'm not even going to look at that website for fear of what it will do to my own bank account.

Ooooh, I am really tempted to sign up for that list, but I can't! I am supposed to be saving money. But maybe if I just give the site a little peek...

Last summer I was so excited to find this beautiful Coach purse on super sale.. and rather than being excited with all the money I "saved" buying it on sale, I spent the difference on a new Coach wallet too. As you can see, I have a serious problem.

the modern gal - some sales I can't pass up.

holly grande - I know. I'm supposed to save, too. But, they have some awesome deals. I'm a shoe whore, what can I say?

miss mar - I'm all about the two for ones.
