    I don't know how it is in the state where you guys live but here in Longwood, Florida, August is the 80% sale lol.

    Sales have been going on but I always wait for Aug, if I am shopping that year. I only shop every 5 years for clothing that I wear daily and for running errands. It seems that I change my taste for clothing every 5 years too. Is it the same with you.? Have your tastes changed several times over the years?

    I now like my tops to have a short, 3/4 or full length sleeve and a V or scoop neck. I don't like the crew neck anymore lol.

    Well today I got two pairs of white slacks, four pairs of Capri's, 4 pairs of shorts and seven tops (colors of the rainbow) I spent 80.00 and saved 266.00. 17 pieces, averaged 4.80 per piece. I think I did good and have such lovely clothes to wear to the end of this summer and the next four lol.

    I got those at JC Penny and next week I will shop Macy's for their 80% off. I never buy winter clothing. I have enough to last me until death lol.

    I can't imagine shopping Walmart. You would never get such a good deal. I have done this for years.

    Great job with the shopping.

    I have been getting my clothes at Coldwater Creek when they have their 70 - 80% off sales. I order all kinds of stuff, try it on and return what I don't want to my local store!

    Sounds like you got a lot of great deals! Good job!

    Unfortunately, I never stock up on off-season clothes because I sincerly hope to be a size or two smaller by the time the weather turns again!

    Funny you should post this. I sent my jcp emails to my phone to use the coupon codes at the store today. I was planning on stopping on my way home from work today. I just love them lately...fashionable, current clothing, reasonable prices. And, is it just me, or do the employees seem friendlier?? Always a good experience when I go there.

    Great deal, that is my kind of shopping I find that since I retired I do not shop as much since I already had a lot of casual clothes that I am finally able to wear now.

    Wish I could, but I am on an enforced budget (I'm broke!) LOL Oh, well. It's good for the soul! And I have plenty of stash.
