- Rust colored jeans (Target) - Originally $23, on clearance for $7 - $5 gift card = $2
- Flannel shirt (Old Navy) - Originally $24, clearance for $18 - 40% off coupon + tax = $12
I resisted the temptation to shop Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, though I was SO CLOSE to placing a few online orders of things I didn't need. Thankfully I reminded myself I really don't need any clothes and that I really want to save my remaining budget ($70) for after-Christmas sales (which are waaaaay better than Black Friday anyway).
I had been looking for a pair of burgundy skinny jeans for awhile (and annoyed that the Old Navy Rockstar jeans had every color imaginable EXCEPT burgundy) and found this deep rust pair on the Target 70% off clearance that was not quite burgundy, but close enough. And the flannel shirt? A nursing mom can never have too many of those.
Also, I FINALLY got my Ebates check for the Frye boots I bought back in the summer (apparently it never made it to my account but I emailed the support team and they immediately took care of it - great customer service!) so I'm adding that amount to my budget ($50). If you don't use Ebates or any other cash back program, you're totally missing out! If you shop online frequently, the dollar here and there totally add up (I don't feel like I shop online too much, but I was able to get back almost $100 this year). You can sign up here.
Sooo... with the extra $50, I now have $120 left for the month of December, which is pretty sweet. I don't need anything but wouldn't mind a grey sweater or some new jeggings, so I'll be hunting down some good year-end sales :)
