Deals & Best Time to buy!!...πŸ’ƒπŸΎπŸ’ƒπŸΎπŸ’ƒπŸΎ


If you know me then you know that I'm a big bargain shopper! When I was younger I used to go thrifting as I loved trying out new trends and old classic trends as well. Like the big grandfather blazer paired with rolled up jeans &  a white tee...you get the gist. This is when I fell in love with fashion as I really able to try to transform clothing not meant for me but able to sew it and alter the pieces perfectly for me! 

My favorite memory is when I transformed  xxl bright red floral 🌷🌷 jumpsuit into a gorgeous blouse!! Yasss yall I was wearing that blouse PROUDLY all summer long!an


Okay so back to the deals and steals post since you know my history of bargain shopping.  So today I'm going to go over the best items to buy based on the month! As it's currently the beginning of the year I am going to post about the first quarter of the year and then do a followup for the remainder of the quarters. As I worked in retail for almost 4 years in college and high school at one of the major chains it not only renewed my interest in bargain shopping but also made it where I understood the true value of clothing as well.

As we all know certain items goes on sale during certain times of the year and it makes sense to set your buying habits around that trend so that you can get the best value for your money.
Without further ado I'm going over the top purchases to buy from January to March.

January:

1. Great for purchasing after Christmas sale items πŸŽ„πŸŽ„
(Decorations,wrapping paper, Christmas tree, lights,Christmas decor)
Retailers: at Home, Michael's, Hobby Lobby, Marshalls, all Major Retailers

2. Boots

Retailers: Francesecas, Maurices,DSW, Jcpenney, Nordstrom Rack

3. Linens Linens Linens

Have you ever heard of a white sale? This is an annual event where many retailers mark down linens. This is a great time to re-decorate your home as they are all on sale.

To get a even better bargain try the outlet stores of the big department stores.

5. Housewares
This is great if you have any extra giftcards to use towards skillet sets and quality pots and pans.
Retailers: JCP, Home Goods, Williams & Sonoma, Target

Retailers: JCP, Macys, Nordstrom, Target, Francesecas, Wal-Mart

7. Last but not least are Unwanted giftcards
