Random Last Minute Come Ups for Me!

-skipped any big sales since I hated waiting in line last year at Target for a tv
-justification? friends xmas gifts & i’m pretty broke, so i have to shop hard
-pictures posted on my album, yay or nay on the deal?
Spent $130.53 (over my budget), Original Worth $578.69 of stuff.
On the way home late Thursday night/Friday morning 1am, pasted by citadel outlet since I was craving window shopping.Â There were still plenty of deals happening here, I’m super duper cheap and only start looking if theres something crazy:
Citadel Outlet DC Store: $15 shoes! Bought two mens shoes for $15 each!Â Decent, and pretty crazy for only $15~!
= $32.90 (Original $220!!)
Friday 3pm, woke up in afternoon & visited friend & saw random surf shop with light amt people shopping outside racks.Â *Deal: some clothes were 40% off and hoodies/sweaters/jackets $20 – Rusty & Hurley brand name & nice editions you’ll never see at discount/ross stores.
Local Surf Shop: $20 sweater/jacket! I bought two! One girl ($94.50) & One Guy gift ($59.50)!

Friday 7pm, wanted to see if I can come up at Walmart with last minute deals (fail).Â However, visited ghetto mall near it & came up! *Deal: Category1 (10shoes for $5),Category 2 (Buy 1 $7.99 shoe, get next shoe for $1.99), Category 3 (30% off purses & new edition shoes), Category 4 (50%off shoes) — all win win situations, since they’re so cheap already (like forever 21 of shoes)

Friday 8pm, whatever deals at Walgreens. We’re in need of chocolate to bake/make xmas gifts since we’re broke, plus our parents enjoy the peanut M&Ms.Â Cashier was nice enough to let us use her in store cashier coupons.Â Originally, Plan/Peanut M&Ms deal was Med Bag 12.60oz $1.50 each (original $3.29).Â She scanned in house coupon $2 off so M&Ms med bags for $1!Â Got Maxi Pads 24ct (girl stuff) for $1.99.

Friday 11pm, Amazon deal? I’m a completely new amazon shopper but couldn’t resist $5 magazine subscriptions as friend’s xmas gifts.Â Cosmopolitian, People, Southern Living, ESPN (12 month issues subscrptions) – added different magazine, switched billing address, with no shipping fees. . .wah-la!
= $20 (original $128)
I am sooooooooo broke! Reason I named this page Half-Empty-Wallet, is because we’re all tight on money….butttttt we always seem to have a credit card or some random amount of money to at least shop for deals.
However, rent doesn’t take credit card! How am I going to pay for next months rent?! haha lol Gotta start selling my packrat stuff on amazon & craigslist then.
