saturday (sales)

labor day sales / it is really hard not to get sucked into all of the sales that take place during major holidays, especially online!  i have pretty strict criteria, though:  there has to be a percentage off & free shipping.  i'm a stickler for free shipping if i am ordering something online!  here are two labor day sales i took advantage of over the weekend:

payless / i love when payless has a percentage off or BOGO sale.  i live across the street from a mall, so i always have my purchases shipped for free to that store.  however, their standard shipping at $5.95 is very reasonable when you think about the weight of shoes and the large boxes they have to be shipped in.  i figured this 20% off promotion {use code 78304 through sept 3} is a better deal than a BOGO, so i knew i didn't want to wait on either of these shoes.  i love the dexter kylie wedges in nude that i wear at least once a week, so picking up this cognac pair was a no-brainer.  i also like the nude heels on the left because they're a slightly different neutral shade and a heel, not a wedge.  they're also the perfect height and toe shape.  do you get as excited about new shoes as i do?!  i can't wait to incorporate both of these shoes into my wardrobe!  and if you're wondering why i didn't just walk my lazy self across the street to the mall and buy these shoes in person, the nude heels weren't available at my store {there is a great feature on payless.com where you can see what stores near you have shoes in stock!}.


old navy / oldnavy.com is another online store that i only purchase from if there is a percentage off sale and i can find enough items to fill my cart to qualify for free shipping.  through sept 3 you can use the code fallcalls for 30% off.  my total was brought down even lower by using a gift card that i'd been holding onto since, oh, christmastime.  i just don't shop at old navy very often anymore, but hopefully i'll be pretty satisfied with each of these items and i like that they average out to be about $6 each.

did you plan to do any online or in-store shopping over the long weekend?  i will make the rounds to a couple goodwills on monday {50% off all colored tags - except the target stock} so i'll let ya know if i come back with anything worth posting about.  enjoy the rest of your long weekend if you have monday off!
