Deal of the Day!

Ever since the wedding, I have not gone clothes shopping ONE TIME. This is huge for me! I used to order from J.Crew about once a week - it was bad. But we've started majorly saving for some large house projects that we're planning for 2010, so my shopping has become non-existant. I'm very proud of myself and I know J is extremely happy about J.Crew boxes not piling up on the front porch weekly.

However, I was starting to get the urge when I realized I have no winter clothes and I was feeling very blah about my wardrobe. I had 2 gift cards left over from Christmas and my birthday to J.Crew and Banana Republic. They were burning holes in my pocket until Jake told me to go ahead and treat myself to some new clothes since I had been so good about it the last few months. Well he didn't have to tell me twice! I headed out to the outlets yesterday because I figured my money would go farther and I typically always find really good deals there.

After a fairly successful stop at the J.Crew outlet (3 new sweaters and a pair of their broken-in chinos for spring!), I headed over to the Banana Republic outlet. I found 4 pairs of work pants (the pants at Banana always fit me so well) and a few sweaters. I was about to go check out when something caught my eye...

(these are not the exact boots, but they look almost exactly the same)

Flat Brown Riding Boots! Since my shopping hiatis, I have felt a little bit behind in the whole "winter trend" thing and I have been dying for a pair of flat boots to wear with jeans. These were marked $149.99. Hmmm...still a bit pricey for my taste. I pulled out the box anyway and tried them on. They fit perfectly! I flipped the box over to see a $74.99 sale sticker! Score!! Definitely worth $75 in my opinion. I head up to the checkout counter and the girl rings them up. I look at the register and see...

$37.99!!!

Yes, that's right. They were an additional 50% off!!! I got perfect leather riding boots for under $40! If I could wear jeans to work, I would have them on right now. Even Jake was very impressed with my thriftiness (even if it was unintentional since I had no idea they were so cheap!)

Funny how getting a deal like that will make your whole week!! Woo hoo!!

Fabulous deal!!! I love when something is unexpectedly marked down further than the sticker price, makes me feel like I just got a major score.
