I used to buy things because they were on sale and I would end up just wearing it a few times then forget about it. Now I’m pretty selective. Even though something might be a good deal, if I don’t really need it (like black shirts or black dresses) or I don’t think I’ll wear it that often, then it goes back on the sales rack.
This past month I’ve been on a serious shopping spree because in the retail world it’s considered end-of-summer and they want to make room for all the new fall clothing, so that means all those spring and summer clothes are now on the clearance racks. I was even able to find a couple pieces that I could wear during the fall as well!
And can you believe I spent less than $100?!? (Before tax)
Here’s what I bought:
- Cardigan and sweatshirt at Zara: $25.98
- Shorts at Free People: $19.95 (You can also buy them online here.)
- Top at Urban Outfitters: $9.99
- Jumpsuit, dress, and skirt at Burlington: $31.97
I’m especially excited about the shorts at Free People, the Max Studio dress (originally $128), and the Splendid jumpsuit (originally $188). I’ve been looking for a cute jumpsuit for awhile and I found one for only $6.99. There were so many clearance racks in Burlington, but somehow I managed to stay focused!
