shop til you drop

Wednesday, December 17, 2008
As Christmas approaches, I'm getting better at two things:

1) Procrastinating when buying gifts that require time to ship.
2) Finding the best deals possible for myself, I mean people.

You want to talk about a shopping mecca! I have a great set of outlets, the Aurora outlets, right by us and I rarely take advantage of them. It's just something I forget that's there. It's so much quicker to run up to one of our local malls then drive 20 more minutes to the outlets.

Mark my word, I'll be there more often. I can't even begin to tell you how many things were on sale. (My head was spinning and the BF was laughing.)

In my quick shopping spree for gift-giving, I found two Coach purses, a wallet, at least 4 new pairs of boots, some dress pants, coat and a cute spring dress.

And, here lies my problem: I see a sale and I want to pounce on it.

Doesn't everyone need that pair of rain boots?
I mean, hello, who doesn't need a new black or brown purse to compliment any future outfit purchases?
Skinny jeans? Hate to love them - of course I need more than one grey and black.

Remember when I said I'm buying gifts? Well, I did and resisted the urge to buy that really cute Coach signature hobo bag with the orange leather detail. I resisted it all in the name of saving money.

Start your shopping engines, ladies, because I'll be back with my Christmas money to snag that new purse.

I am TERRIBLE at this. Every time I go Christmas shoppign, I end up buying something for myself. It's a sickness, really.
