Excellent Shopper (+deals)

Did anyone else take advantage of BR's 50% off 5 items coupon yesterday?!  I sure did.  I went to the store after dinner and unfortunately a lot of the tops I like were sold out in my size.  I ended up just getting three pencil skirts that I can wear for work...but paid a fraction of the price!  In addition to my 50% off coupon, I also have $40 in rewards from my Gap store card.  Originally with tax the skirts would have cost $250.78 and I paid just $81.49!! Woowhee!  Here's what I got (which really aren't that fun, but were a practical purchase):
Grey lightweight wool skirt
Stretch pencil skirt

Navy lightweight wool skirt

In addition to the store being slightly picked over and the long dressing room line, the check-out line was out of control long!!  I got in line at 8pm and was nervous I wouldn't make it to J Crew (conveniently two stores down) before they closed.  I had the girl in the dressing room hold onto my skirts and I ran next door.  I'm glad I did!  Two items that I had seriously planned on ordering online for my sister as part of her Christmas gift last night were in store, on sale, and an additional 30% off!  I don't want to post what it is in case she reads this. But, I will tell you I got a great deal and paid just 35% percent of the full retail price!  Gosh, I love a good deal :O) Then I still had time to go back to BR and stand in line (which looked worse than it was).

Because I am a nerd and love numbers, I added up that I spent about $102 for what would have originally cost me $305.  And, after all of that, I still have $1 left in my spending budget, which gets replenished tomorrow when I get paid (whew) :O)  What an excellent night of shopping!  Although I have decided that I'm going to increase my shopping budget and lessen my savings contribution slightly for the next couple checks with the holidays coming.
