New Purse- New Boobs....

I feel like I spent a ridiculous amount of money shopping on Friday.

I had a half day of work and decided to leave Casey with the sitter all day (since OH MY GOSH..she only really had her 2 days last week) and take some time for myself.

I had a few things to return to Lane Bryant that I received for the holiday and with that credit and my gift cards I had about $120 to spend.

I managed to get a pair of jeans, 2 sweaters, a shirt, a cami and 4 NEW BRAS. It's like having new boobs. I don't think you ever realize just how shot your bras are until you put on new ones and see yourself in the mirror and say "HOLY SHIT!" There is nothing I love more than a Buy 2, Get 2 FREE sale at Lane Bryant. $70 for 4 bras....a girl just can't go wrong.

Then I had $45 in gift cards to Carson Pirie Scott where I went looking for a new purse. They had a lovely deep wine colored 9 WEST purse (originally $69) on clearance for $26. You betcha. Add in the lovely earrings at 40% and a top marked down to $19.99 and my entire purchase out of pocket for me... about $12, which was great because the earrings and top were b-day gifts for my Mom...so I seriously scored on this one. But I just love my purse. I needed a new one so much.

Then I went to K-mart on Saturday. Found a gazillion things on clearance there for myself...and a lovely Buy one get one 50% off on my favorite underwear (something else I was in desperate need of) and I spent another $100.

When I sat down and thought about all I'd spent...I was shaking ( I hate to part with money and then realize I overspent) but then I broke it down. After all the store credits and gift cards...I'd really only spent about $130 for a TON o shit. Then of course I forgot about the $110 to DSW for 2 pairs of gym shoes for my husband and I for our trip at the end of this month..but really things we needed.

So in fairness I didn't spend ALL that much....but new purse and new bras were definitely my biggest score.

I'm so exciting.

I have an AQUA one that fits fine and a white one that fits okay but has a huge underwire sticking out. BAH.
