Some of you know that I vow to not go near the post-Christmas sales. I spend way too much over Christmas to spend more now.
But today I did a foolish thing. I went to use up some gift certificates that I had at a store called Jacob and I ended up spending way more than the certificates were worth!!!
But ladies – I bought pants for 9.99 and shirts that ranged from 6.99 to 14.99! I had to buy a good supply – plus some for Susan too.
Then I went next door to Mexx Kids and spent even more! I know, I know! But 50% off everything in the store – can you blame me? And oh my word – the clothes I got for Julia are so cute! (I am sure they will be featured in an upcoming Wordless Wednesday.) I also bought Jackson four pairs of pants – but they are all for next winter. He doesn’t need anymore this year.
So, in two stores I did some serious damage to the bank account. But as I said – I am conflicted. I feel bad about spending more money – but the sale prices were so great! And Julia looks so cute in the adorable clothes. (Mexx Kids makes such cool stuff – but even at 50% off they are expensive!)
So how about you? Do you shop after-Christmas sales? Do you feel guilty about spending money, even if it was a great sale?
