I love Black Friday

November 28th, 2008 at 09:45 am

So I got my student loan check for the Fall semester & just put $5000 towards paying down DH's car.

And, as an Xmas present to myself - I just bought $500 worth of clothes online.

I feel no remorse. I know I desperately needed new clothes. But most times I don't get anything cause DH and the kids need stuff.

I have one pair of sneakers that we bought almost 2 years ago. Yes, it is my only pair of sneakers. I have boots & heels, but I wear the sneakers the most and I've worn a hole through the heel since I wear them almost daily.

Most of my bras I've had since 2006, the underwire has now broken through. Other shirts of mine I've had since 2005 and they've started to get holes through them.

I realized I had finally had it when we walked into Target and my kids all said "Mommy, we need new shoes." Umm... no, we bought them shoes last month.

So I took off my shoe and showed them the inner heel & said "We bought you shoes last month. Look at Mommy's shoe, do you need them THIS badly?"

DH has gotten the hint too that I'm frustrated on how much I need of new clothes. We finally agreed, its time I got new clothes & with being Black Friday I figured it would be a great time.

I bought 3 pairs of shoes, 2 pairs of jeans, 3 tops, 8 pairs of underwear, and 3 bras from NY&C, JCPenney, and VictoriasSecret for $500.

Everything was on sale and I got free shipping. I even got a free scarf from Victorias Secret. The jeans from NY&C are normally $50/each but they had a buy one get 75% off sale. I saved at least $300-$400

So I feel good knowing I can finally toss out these old shoes & have jeans that really FIT now because for some reason, over time the length on my jeans shrink even though I'm 5'7" and buy talls - they still rise up to my ankles when I sit down after awhile.
