Earlier this year, I took on the challenge of cleaning my closet. I had not done a thorough examination of what was in my closet in a few years and it was definitely time. Now that my closet is clear and organized, I realized a few months ago that there were a few things I desperately needed for fall and winter. I needed boots, wide legged pants and a faux leather skirt that is work appropriate.
With this in mind, I decided not only to find those three things, but find a few other closet additions for a great price. For seven of these items, I spent a total of $150. As a thrifter, it seems a bit outrageous, but in the grand scheme of things, that's a good deal for seven brand new pieces. The studded black heels were a gift from my fiance.
Tips for Purchasing Retail
- Use coupon codes. (Ex: RetailMeNot)
- Save gift cards you may have received.
- Wait for End of Season sales or events (Cyber Monday).
- Shop clearance.
To purchase these items at a great price, I used coupon codes for 20% off or free shipping. I also purchased clearance items with additional savings. Lastly, I even saved a gift card I won recently and used it on Cyber Monday and received free shipping.
What have you purchased lately? Did you do any Cyber Monday shopping?
God bless & stay fabellis,
