I have been shopping. Shopping is a good thing. Since starting Dave Ramsey’s plan last year, I am given a monthly “allowance”, if you will, of money that can be spent on whatever I want to. New clothes, movie rentals, music, lunch/dinner out with friends – whatever. We refill/add to our envelopes at the beginning of each month. Normally, I spend all the money I have but last month, I actually had some left over. So I went shopping on Sunday and found some tank tops and a new purse.
Monday, I went to exchange a gift from Kohl’s for store credit and decided to take a stroll through their shoes. I’ve been wanting to get something fun and flashy to wear with my jeans. Thanks to a blog I had visited a week or so ago, what I wanted was some red heels. Every woman should have a pair of red heels. Just because. Truly, I didn’t expect to find any, but there they were, on clearance for $12. Score!
Then, today, I went to Target to browse through their clearance racks and look over their jeans. I haven’t bought myself new jeans in about 3 years, so I figure it’s about time. I didn’t really like what Target had for jeans, but I did find 3 new tops in their clearance section.
Later, I went to Old Navy and guess what? They had jeans on sale for $19! Score! Again! And they had some long sleeve tops on sale for $5 each AND they also had a military discount special going on for an additional 10% off. It doesn’t really get much better than that. Getting new clothes on sale? Yeah….
Oh, and those shoes?
