January deals - Part 2

I really believe we should start saving our money and all go shopping together in January.  I found another great deal.  It was at Target, where there are many deals to be had, but this particular deal was a "big name designer" collaboration.

This dress is perfectly puffy and a beautiful color for my blondies.  And as a bonus, the designer is -

My daughter knew exactly who is behind the name Marchesa, because we watch Georgina Chapman judge Project Runway All-Stars every week.  The only problem was that when I first saw it, the dress was priced at $79.99.  A little much for a little girl.  Last week, it was 40% off.  Better price, but it's "dry clean only".  This week, I decided I was going to buy it anyway, because I knew my daughter would love it.  Bonus time - it was on clearance for $23.  Sold and sold.  Now, both of my girls will be wearing Marchesa for Target at their next fancy outing.

January deals

I have always found January to be the best time to shop.  Clothing stores have amazing after-Christmas sales.  Of course, I will miss out on that opportunity this year.  However, I just found another place for great deals in January - ebay!

I bought my youngest daughter a brand new ipod nano for Christmas.  After spending many frustrating hours working on it, I finally accepted the fact that it is not compatible with our computer.  I realized that I was going to have to find find an old ipod.  A friend suggested I try ebay. I went online. There are so many ipods for sale on ebay.  I don't know why I didn't go there in the first place.

It arrived today.  Looks like new.  And was MUCH cheaper than the one I originally bought at Target.  It's nice to get some money back after Christmas.
