Kicking Myself

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 11:32 PM
Yep, that's right. I am kicking myself right now.
Backstory. I cannot go Christmas shopping without getting at least something for myself. I can't help it. I'm already out in the spending mindset so when I see something I like I have to get it. Sometimes I think twice about it or I'll buy it then take it back like I did last week.

I went to the mall because I wanted to see if there was anything else I could get the girls or my parents. Of course I just happen to walk past Steve Madden and I just happened to stop at the window because they just happen to put the most gorgeous shoes in the display window.
4 inch dressy Suade boots and they were $169. Yes, $169.95. I tried them on, died from how amazing they looked them left the store to think about it. About a hour later I came back and bought them. I definitely didn't tell the husband because I think he would have killed me on the spot.

But then it happened. I was at home, later that night when I got an email. It had a Steve Madden promo codes in it and I almost had a heart attack. How could I forget to check for discounts and promo codes before buying something so expensive?!

I went back to the store the next day and thankfully they fixed the price to represent the promo code costs. And with that extra cash I felt better about buying my stepmom a Kitchenaid mixer!

Moral of the story is always look for a coupon code when you're shopping because you never know what discounts are out there for you. It's so important to save every day but especially during the holidays when we're shopping so much.

When I shop online, I always remember to look for codes. When I shop in stores, I always forget!

I LOVE Steve Madden shoes & I am a code nazi! Even if the shop is a no name, I'll still check for a coupon before placing the full order!
