So the Little Lady and I went to the mall today (I know, the MALL!) to hit the sales for some back to school clothes. Since she is done growing we really didn’t need all that much to fill out her wardrobe, and since we bought her three cardigans (yeah THREE) she has doubled her outfits because she can wear her tank tops to school without getting into trouble.
We hit so many stores and walked back and forth through the mall so many times but it was such a fun day. We took our time and didn’t rush through anything, which is always the best way to shop. If you’re in a hurry you’ll overspend and be angry. So you take your time instead, look at everything you can, try stuff on so you know how it looks. Then when you get home, you’re worn out, but you’re happy with your purchases.
Anyway, altogether, we bought 3 cardigans, 2 skirts, 2 pairs of jeans, 2 pairs of shorts, 2 belts, and a necklace. Homecoming related we got her dress out of layaway, bought her a pair of shoes and a set of 6 bracelets to go with them. We also had lunch at Fuddrucker’s before starting and at the end of the day we stopped at Starbucks for tea and coffee.
We also hit Bath and Body Works because I was running low on Dark Kiss, which I swear they made just for me (so everyone else except Little Lady’s best friend) needs to stop wearing it, ok? Ok. In order to save a few bucks we did the Buy 2 get 1 Free. We agreed on Secret Wonderland as our other light-scented perfume to wear whenever we felt like it and Little Lady picked up something that is apple and citrus scented.
I did however forget to stop at Home Depot and get some light bulbs… and I forgot to stop at Lowe’s for some other stuff, but that’s ok. I have a coupon for Burlington that is good on the 31st, so we’ll be back in that area then. I enjoy walking around the mall, even if we are walking back and forth going to stores we passed up originally. It’s good exercise and burns a lot more calories than some exercises do. (If I find the article that mentioned that… I’ll link it.) For now, I’m off to read or continue learning Japanese. Later!
