It doesn’t seem to be that hard saving money when you really try. I usually have a hard time not spending some amount of money within a week whether it’s for milk or that shirt that I just have to have and it’s on SALE! Well today, I went ahead and purchased the kid’s spring clothes. I was going to wait, but they were having, of course, a sale. Children’s Place marked down a lot of their items 30% plus with my web coupon code, I saved another 15%. Since I have a Place Card, there’s another 5%. I’m in discount heaven!
I bought 19 items for $159.00 (not exact). I realize that that may seem still a little steep when it comes to kid’s clothes, but you have to realize. I am not a Walmart or Goodwill shopper. Not saying there is anything wrong with those places, but I get anxiety when I go in there. Always disorganized, and I am not a picker. Maybe to save money, I should become one, but I’m a little too OCD when it comes to that sort of thing. I saved about $35 today, and I’m pretty happy.
I didn’t pick any item that was over $17, and the majority of the items I picked were on sale. So what’s the verdict for my savings? When it comes to pay day, pay off my purchases and put what I saved in our savings account. Depending on how Yaya feels after she gets back from the Doctor, we may go do my grocery shopping tonight.
I’m pretty anxious to see how much I’m going to save with all my coupons. Yes, I’m a dork 🙂 But a happy, saving money dork!
