After my near ESS breakdown and some encouraging words from fellow bloggers (Sistah Ant and Single Ma *wink*) I decided to go ahead and give into my shopping itch BUT within a planned budget and only for things on my wish list. I can only purchase things off my wish list IF they are on sale and I can use a coupon to get even more of a discount on them. I am not planning on getting everything on my list so I set my budget to $500 until the end of the year.
Macys was having a lovely sale today and I had some even lovelier coupons. Tee hee. I should have gotten arrested for this steal I got. If you have read my Wish List you know that I want a Wolfgang Puck cookware set. Well after doing some research I decided to either get a Martha Stewart set or a Cuisinart set. Both have the highest ratings when it comes to quality and dependability. Macys had both on sale today. The Martha Stewart 13 piece set was on sale for $139.99 and the Cuisinart 7 piece Chef set was $99.99. Of course I chose Martha set (double the pieces for an extra $40 bucks.....uh yeah). Anyways Dimples went into hustlette mode at the checkout counter out:
Martha Stewart Collection Stainless Steel 12-Piece Cookware Set (Reg. $199.99)
Apply 20% off coupon
Apply $25 off $100 coupon
Extra 15% when you use your Macy's card
Final total: $73.94 !!
That leaves me with $426.06 left in my Holiday budget. It feels good to shop with out hating yourself afterwards. I am pretty psyched.
