When is the time to splurge and when is the time to save? With the holidays approaching quickly we are all on tighter budgets. So while I’m out shopping around, I try my hardest….. but there is always something to be found! One of my absolute favorite stores is Anthropologie. Of course on Black Friday I had to go….. they were offering 25% off ya know! Now keep in mind I have my “ANTHRO” rules: Closing my eyes, staying on budget and on task (gifting!), finally getting inspiration. What happens? THE COAT? It’s hooded, it’s warm, it’s cute, well it’s perfect. Price tag, well it’s a BIG SPLURGE! Ouch…. So when do you splurge and when do you save? I loved it, but I was sticking to my rules. Out of Anthropologie I went, feeling bent……. but next stop was to Target and believe me I SPENT! I could not believe my eyes! Much to my surprise, there stood a coat so similar! I saved and spent, what a great deal it meant!

(BONUS in the middle of my little poem…. THIS Target coat was 40% off and I had a $10.00 coupon!) I was SOLD! Sometimes you have to know when to “splurge” and when to “save”. My main point, keep to your rules while shopping!
