There’s a new online shop that my Twitter buddies are going crazy about. They just pooled and placed their orders of elegantly designed summer blouses, dresses, rompers from Causeway Mall this afternoon. They ordered a lot that, perhaps, their online barcode scanners were overworked. I almost placed my orders as well because of the relatively wholesale prices these apparels are pegged at. The two blouses are below $7 each while the cocktail dress is less than $10. But what stopped me is the uncertainty of the sizes and measurements. That’s the hurdle when you have a small built like mine. I might check out theirs first and see if I can order next time.Shopping | Comments (5)
At a first glance, the discount figures and percentages on coupons may appear insignificant but a lot of people have saved several hundred dollars a month on grocery bills, just as one example, simply by using coupons wisely.
I had a first hand experience on this when I used Old Navy coupon codes for a little shopping spree I did for my son a few weeks ago. I was supposed to be billed with a total of $60 but due to a 10% coupon code I got, I just paid a little over $50. Great savings indeed. I thought of adding one more $6 2T shirt but I stepped back and decided to add the saved amount for a later use. I just remembered now that I’m scheduled to buy my son his Halloween costume online. Hoping to find new Buy Costumes coupons that I could use. Either a free shipping code or a discount code, it doesn’t matter as long as I pay less.Filed under Shopping | Comment (0)
I have recently mentioned about how two of my online friends made Flickr to an instant online shop. And when you’re scrimping and your paypal wallet is in freeze mode just like mine, you just don’t know how agonizing it is to view them with the thought that you can’t shout the words “SOLD!” and consider that item “mine”. You’re just limited on browsing each and every pictures of Coach handbags and wallets, La Coste headbands and bags, Kenneth Cole and Fossil watches. Even if they are marked down at special prices, you don’t have a choice but just drool and “cry” over them wishing that somehow, you’ll get a chance to own one of them someday. Wishful thinking.
Speaking of wishes and watches, it won’t hurt if I’ll just be contented filling up my wish list. Who knows, Santa Claus will do his rounds early this year and I might be gifted any of these styles I saw from Stylehive.
Aren’t they all lovely? I wonder how many blog articles will it take me to save for just one of these. Fossil watches surely are a bit expensive but their quality and styles make up for their prices. I really don’t have a penchant with branded watches but Fossil is an exemption. Filed under Shopping, Simply Me | Comment (0)
Who says that Flickr serves only as a photo organizing tool and sharing application? Well for my twitter group, it also functions as an online shop! How you may ask? Well, our US-based friends Glo and Trin will scour the outlet stores of Coach, Ralph Lauren, Fossil, Kenneth Cole and La Coste and shop for on sale items like hand bags, purses, shirts and watches. Then they will post the pictures for us to see along with the items’ details and discounted prices. Since they were bought at overly discounted prices (usually half the price), we get it at a special price too (presyong kaibigan as we say on our language). Still way cheaper than its regular retail price. No wonder a lot of my twitter pals have shopped more than one item. They must have earned ample earnings from their blogs recently and they’re rewarding themselves with such a good treat.
As for me, unfortunately, I have purposely set my paypal wallet to freeze mode so no unnecessary shopping for me right now. Hubby and I are dead serious on a bigger project we’re cooking so we’re really striving hard to save every penny we could. Of course, I’m drooling over those nice branded hand bags and watches but it’s okay, I can wait.Filed under Shopping | Comment (0)
Last Friday, I went to the bank to do some errands for my Dad. I also took the chance to accomplish some banking assignments that I’ve been delaying for quite some time now. One, I got our passbook updated. Two, I enrolled a credit card bill to the online express facility of the bank (so I can just pay my dues online). And three, I finally opened Asher a savings account.
There’s a mini-bookfair in the bank’s lobby so I bought some boardbooks for the little one before proceeding to Landmark. To meet Kathy at Landmark was actually the second purpose of my going out that day. We met up because I handed her purchased stuff from another friend and vice versa, she handed me the guest sheets that arrived late from Artscow. They were supposedly additional guest sheets for Asher’s party. Anyway, since I still have ample time left and was able to leave instructions at home regarding Asher’s lunch, I decided to stroll and yep, shopped a little. I bought 3 tops and a pair of shorts, all (total) less than Php 500. The tops I bought were all reasonably priced at Php 79 each yet they’re all appealing, comfy and match my style. In addition, I also bought my boys some apparels (boxer shorts for the husband and 2 shorts for Asher) and a nursery rhymes cd for the little one. Since I was so in the mood to shop and I’m feeling generous that moment, I also bought Asher’s nanny a nice blouse. Just an extra bonus and a token of gratitude for loving and taking care of my son very well.
So there I somehow broke my self-imposed NO SHOPPING rule for a moment and bought a few things for everybody. Well, binge-ing once in a while is just okay, right?Filed under Shopping | Comment (0)
