So far this month I’ve been trying to be good and not spend much since the bills from the holiday shopping will be rolling in. But I I did purchase some items and wanted to share my savings so far this month.
Every store you go into this time of year has great savings. I often found that in the past on Black Friday everything is so picked over that there is no point to even looking for good deals. But this past week alone I have saved 42% by taking advantage of sales and promotions pre black Friday.
At Charlotte Russe leggings were BOGO FREE! Since I will be wearing them all winter long I bought two pairs for $10 total. Also there were a pretty pair of over the knee boots on sale in the store I was shopping at but already they only had one size left and it was not my size. So I went home and the next day I was prepared to drive to another store to find my size but when I checked online I saw that these boots were on sale and there was free shipping on any purchase, no limit! So I just bought them right then online for $26.99. Plus when I purchased the leggings the day before I received an email for 20% off my entire next purchase so I used that discount code at checkout. The boots were originally priced at $44.99 but were marked down 40% + 20% discount so $21.60 and free shipping. That’s 52% savings.
Charming Charlie has a bunch of discount coupons floating around. I used two of the bonus cards in two separate transactions and saved $30 on 2 dresses 2 scarves and a sweater!!
Between these two stores I saved $62, or 42%, that’s pretty good to me considering I didn’t have to deal with any large crowds or long lines!!

Here are some fashion & beauty pics inspired by fall…..
I just purchased this beautiful coat from Forever21…I paid full price ($60) because I know it won’t last until a sale…it’s too pretty and they only had one left in the store in my size! Can’t wait to wear it!!
Some of my favorite fall nail polish colors! I’ve collected these colors over the years..the brands range from Marc Jacobs to Ulta.
Some makeup lip colors I’ve been loving…the especially love the Milani cosmetics metallic lipsticks.
More makeup I’ve been loving for fall
This is a turquoise handbag I purchased on sale from Charming Charlie and I added a fall colored scarf for a dressier touch.
Kate Spade tote with my plaid scarf
I have some amazing fall colored handbags to rotate through the next couple of months!
All three of these handbags were less than $30 each, the green bag was less than $15! I purchased all three of them at various times from Charming Charlie. None of them are from this season so I doubt they’re still available, but Charming always has new handbags for every season of the year and such an awesome color selection!
If I were looking for another fall handbag I’ve already noticed a few from this season that I would love to grab.
A plaid tote would look great with my collection. Leopard is also another weakness! Or even this dark wine colored purse! Charming charlies always has something I would love in their store!
