A few months back I told you all about how I was trying to save more money and I've been really great at it. I haven't gotten myself into a crazy amount of debt, been paying off my credit cards, and started paying my student loans. I've honestly been really proud of myself...
That is until the biggest shopping weekend of the year came upon me and I went a little nuts. I definitely could've done a lot more damage but my wallet definitely felt the hit.
I decided to treat myself to a few products I've been wanting and items I knew I needed...but like I said, it's not as bad as you think.
As big of a shopaholic as I am, I don't really follow through on all my purchases. I can't tell you the number of times I filled my cart up with goodies, entered my credit card info, and then just cancelled out the entire window. Sometimes, my buyer's remorse gets the best of me before I even purchase something.
I'll stop rambling and share my purchases. Everything I bought was truly a steal, whether it was 30%, 40%, or 50% off, plus free shipping. I wasn't messing around!
|American Eagle Chunky Cable Knit Cardigan (ON SALE NOW) American Eagle Jeggings American Eagle Blanket Scarf Coastal Scents Beijing Eyeshadow Palette Coastal Scents Brushes 1 2 3 4 Bauble Bar Crystal Mason Ring in Rose Gold (I've talked about this ring for MONTHS and I finally got it and I'm obsessed) tarte Lights, Cameras, Fashes mascara (this was a purchase for my mom but I got a sample of the lights, camera, lashes mascara)|
Aside from my own frivolous purchases, I helped my mom pick out my Christmas presents. With all the deals going on, you couldn't pass them up. I picked out this C. Wonder Monogrammed Tote and two Baublebar necklaces. (1 2)
Sidenote: USE EBATES! I know you've all probably heard of the site but may have thought it was a scam. I kid you not, this site is a godsend. All you have to do is create an account and whenever you want to shop online, just go to Ebates first to see if you can earn cash back. Some sites will have more cash back than others but during Black Friday/Cyber Monday, some sites had DOUBLE the cash back.
Your cash back earnings are stored in your account and Ebates will send you a check in the mail. You actually are getting paid to shop. This is incredible.
This was my one treat to myself, along with some other frivolous purchases from Target and CVS that I may haul but for now, this is it. Back to saving money!
