Like every January, people tend to pull back a little on their spending to recover their finances from the holiday season. Or maybe it’s part of their resolution to spend less and save more moolah. My reason for spending less is to save more moolah. On the other hand, it isn’t as if I spend frivolously on anymore but there are some days when I just want to treat myself and my son.
If you’re following me on Instagram then you may have noticed some of my discount indulgence and fashion posts this month.
Last week there was a winter sale at H&M. My original plan was to look at clothing for my son. Whoops! Their sale on other things (i.e. apparel & accessories) were too good to pass up! Technically, even with the sale, the items I purchased were considerably less than my son’s clothing – I actually spent more money on my son than myself, however, I got a lot more items than for him. Funny how that works! I also picked up two cosmetic items from Target using coupons. Yay, me! Yay, for coupons! I did also get the Ted Baker bag from my wishlist using a giftcard, however that was at full price.
The bags/handbags + accessories.
I’m actually pretty proud of how much I saved! haha Did you go shopping this month? Did you take advantage of any winter discounts?
