Thanks to a combination of sales, coupons, reward programs and birthday discounts I have to say that even though I didn’t plan to buy much of anything this month I’m really happy with what I ended up with. The hilarious thing? I bought all of these items on the same day. I very rarely spend an entire day shopping but that’s what happened!

I’ve also done really well with just deleting sales emails from stores this month. If I don’t browse then I don’t buy. It’s as simple as that.

Although, if these shoes ever show up in my inbox I will be pouncing on them. I’m still waiting for one of you to find them in a size 8 and buy them for me. I’ll pay you back!!

    Ha, picture #2 makes it look like you bought new legs in January :P Those nude tights certainly live up to their name!

    All of my sale e-mails go to my spam e-mail account, and I’ve taken to deleting all of them without even opening them. I used to mark them as read, but it’s so much better to just get rid of them entirely. The only time I pay any attention is when I’m desperately in the market for something or when I know I’m going to be going shopping soon. Otherwise there is WAY too much temptation.

      And I’ve already worn the heels and the necklace at least twice each so I know I’m getting my money’s worth out of them.

      I will fully admit I don’t actually use Gmail. It all gets forwarded to a different email address. I need to figure Gmail out, though, because I know it can be super useful!

    LOL! I was going to say the same thing as Bethany and Valerie about buying legs! :)

    I have unsubscribed from most emails because I would browse when I needed nothing. Except Kohl’s. Ha ha.

    I was actually just thinking that I need to unsubscribe to store emails too! They are just too tempting!

    I really like the shoes you bought – that ankle strap is really cute. And you really did get some great deals this month!
