shopping after Christmas sales

I was in Borders yesterday and found some great deals. They have their boxed gift sets for about 75% off. I bought 6- $20 gift sets for less than $5 each! I'm super excited about these, as they will make great gifts. I plan to use some in Easter baskets as well as for friends' birthdays.

I don't go out looking for sales after the holidays, but if I stumble upon a sale, and there are items I can use, then I just go for it. Since I'm trying to simplify and declutter, I really think about each purchase. Do I have a recipient in mind, or will it just sit in the closet just in case? In the past, I bought stuff like crazy, but I just ended up with too many gifts and not enough people to give them to.


  1. I miss that kind of after-holiday smart sale shopping- we just don't live in an area with those options. Although, that also means I spend less impulsively!

  2. I hope to be able to stop in to Borders tomorrow, thanks for the heads up!

    Also I passed an award on to you. For the details see this post: http://easyfrugalliving.blogspot.com/2011/01/stylish-blogger-award-received.html

  3. Girl- I sometimes wish that I didn't have these options. I was too impulsive today! ha ha! Thanks for the comment!

  4. Oh Lisa! Thanks so much! You are awesome!!!!!!!
