If you’ve read some of my previous posts, I’m a frugalista. Love to save money wherever I can. I love to do the end of season clearances and stock up for the next year.
Well, I’ve been needing a new winter coat. I’ve had the same one for about 7 years. Each year I tell myself, I’ll get a new one next year. It served it’s purpose. It’s warm, ( I had got a great deal on it as well), I liked the colors and it fit. I’ve had a hole in the Right pocket for several years but every year it gets bigger but this year the zipper started acting up. As I’m sure some of you moms out there know your kids have new shoes and coats each year but you are content with what you have lol! So I started browsing hoping to find a good end of season clearance on a coat. I really wanted a warm peacoat. Preferably a neutral color I could wear for mulitple events (another way to save money, versatility). I scoured the internet: Target, Overstock, Old Navy, BonTon, Boscovs, Sears, and then I stopped at HSN.
HSN had a lot of really nice coats on clearance. I ended up getting myself a coat like I’ve wanted for years. Originally $160….got it for $40…go ME! (I also had $16 spendable K$sh left in my account from the free HSN giftcards I got from mypoints.com for christmas shopping). There were other really nice coats on clearance. Another cute one I looked at was only $30 peacoat style. But the one I got had everything I wanted: wool blend, hooded, pockets, it came in black, had a lot of good reviews and had a good price. It had my name all over it.
Another tip: READ THE REVIEWS. If the vast majority of the people are complaining about the product there is probably a reason. Sure there will always be 1 or 2 negatives but if the majority are negative I’d recommend staying away from the products.
So yay! I’m set for another 5 years hopefully lol! Here’s a pic of the coat on got on HSN.com
And for anyone else who’s been putting off getting themselves a new winter coat, here is the HSN link. Browse the sales people, embrace the clearance 🙂
