Our Annual Day After Shopping
Most years my sister-in law Cheryl and I go shopping the day after Christmas. Clothes shopping to be exact. This girl really likes to shop and she has a great eye.

I do not. I am not a good shopper and prefer hanging out in jeans and a t-shirt. However, I like going with Cheryl because it is like having your own personal shopper.

We only shop the sale section and yesterday we found some great bargains.

My sister and brother in law joined us (he likes to shop more than my sister does!) and we had so much fun.

We like to go to Chico's. This store is a little pricey but if you shop the sales you can get great quality items at a really reasonable price.

Yesterday I did great and only spent $21.50 (actually $61.50 but I had a gift certificate for $40.00)

My sister had never been to Chico's and quickly feel in love with this store. She spent much more than I did.

Michael Phelps mom shops at this store and all during the Olympics I kept saying "I think I saw that outfit at Chico's". Turns out that's one of the only places she shops.

I was feeling very proud of myself for showing such self control and not going hog wild and spending lots of money on myself.

Until this afternoon.

Cheryl and I had to run an errand into another town. Turns out we passed another Chico's on the way and just had to run in and check out their sales rack.

I bought this. Cheryl bought this cute vest. I bought a jacket similar to this one (only mine is prettier) with a new pair of pants and turtle neck to go with it. I also bought two tops to wear with jeans.

All the items were 50% off the price they are showing on the website. I paid $35.00 for my long coat, it was originally $185.00.

I'm not going to tell you how much I spent total (umm, my husband reads this blog ladies) but I will tell you I paid a minimum of 70% off the original price of each item.

If you are looking for some good quality clothes that will last you a while. Go check out this store or shop online.

Do you want to know what my favorite part of shopping at this store is?

I wear a size 2 or 3 in their clothes.

No, I have not lost weight. The people at Chico's are just really smart and they know a girl would much rather wear a 2 or 3 instead of, well, a number that is double digits.

I'm just sayin.

I want to shop there. I don't think I've ever worn a size 2 or 3...well maybe when I was two or three years old!
