When I heard that J.Crew was having their extra 40% off clearance this weekend, without hesitation, I went to the page for the sequined striped tee. (the one I'd been pining for over the summer but was deterred by it's $72 price tag.) Reduced to $50 the extra 40% would make it $30 (not bad) but lo - the only size left was extra large (now completely sold out).
Later I found myself sniffing around the items I'd put on my Christmas wishlist but hadn't received. I went to check on a dolman sleeve sweater from The Limited which had been $50. Now it was $20, and I decided to look for a free shipping coupon, but found a way to get half off if you spent $50 instead. In search of a $30 item I found this striped sequin tee. Check out the comparison:
After my discount and the shipping, my total was $34, so I'm just saying I spent $17 on each.
Later this weekend I found myself in TJMaxx and much like last year, I found piles of super cheap tights on clearance. I wasn't as committed to photographing them properly (like last year) so this little preview will have to suffice.
Lastly, I was lured into the Gap by an extra 30% off your purchase sign and found this little dress, originally $60, reduced to $40, now $28. But I had $20 in gift certificates, so my total was $8!
Apologies for the iPhone photos!
