In any case, my mother and I went Christmas shopping yesterday, and of course we went to JCP. I ended up getting three very nice presents plus four new pair of underwear for myself (since I am still wearing my maternity bikinis from when I was pregnant with The Boy, who just turned three). Full price would have been around $100, but between sales and coupons I only paid...wait for it...$41.
So, here's the part where I get weird...whenever I get great deals like this on presents for people, I always feel like I should buy more. Never mind that Aunt Mabel is getting a $50 sweater, if I only paid $10 for it I feel cheap. There have been years where I succumbed to the guilt and totally overbought for everyone, but I'm being strong this year. The fact that my Christmas budget is minuscule this year helps, but I am determined to be pleased with my purchases and view the tiny prices as a bonus.
