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!!
Check out my Sephora savings this season here.
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! If you sign up to be a rewards member then you receive promotional coupons in the mail via email that you can use for additional savings on already cheap prices!
I absolutely love this store: see additional posts I’ve done on savings below!
Another fabulous Bath and Body Works haul! So this past weekend for one day only the 3 wick candles were 10 dollars off. Regular price they are $22.50, with 10 dollars off that makes the sale price $12.50, this is still pricey to me. However if you are an email subscriber you all received a coupon for 20% off your entire purchase that you could combine with sales items. This took an additional $2.50 off each candle. Making my checkout total $10.00. In addition I brought to the store my discounted giftcard that I had purchased here and received another 22% off my purchase.
Total savings: $22.50 ea. to $7.80; savings of 65%!!
This deal was good for online as well, so if you couldn’t make it to the store you could buy on BBW website. Make sure to check cash back deals before you make your purchase because you can save additional money without any coupons.
I stock up on BBW candles a few times a year when the price drops, check out my savings earlier this year:
I really haven’t done too much clothes shopping this summer but I did have savings at a few of my favorite stores!!
New York and Company is a great store for business casual clothing. I found this dress for 57% off in mid-July!!
During Jan/Feb I had earned GAP rewards by using my Gap Visa card on purchases outside of Gap stores. GAP runs this promotion a couple times a year and I had earned $10 in rewards. As the rewards were coming near to expiration I went and purchased these pants for 60% off. They were running a promotion for 40% off GAP rewards card holder member plus I used my rewards on top of that!!
Old Navy I just happened into one weekend in JULY And I saved 30% by just buying summer items that were already marked down.
I have the most clothes in my wardrobe currently from Charming Charlie. Recently I went to the store with a coupon for $25 off a $70 purcahse. The best part is you can use it on your entire purchase so I mostly bought items that were already marked down! In total I saved 65% through markdowns and the coupon.
I’m loving the deals I’ve found so far this summer!!!
