I have 1 guilty pleasure that I indulge in each year, a new Coach bag. While they are expensive(and there is no way I would pay for one at full price) I love when they go on sale on black Friday. Up until this year I would hit the BX on base for the Coach sale, which was at 25% off, well this year I found even better and wish all along I had been going to the Coach Outlet. Had we not moved I never would have even thought to go there, I just assumed the purses were cheaper on base (although the Coach sneakers I have I bought at Macy’s for about 70% off retail, with a debate between Nikes and Coach the Coach were cheaper and won that debate). But anywho at the Outlet store they had a HUGE Clearance section(took me almost an hour to decided which bag I was getting), the bags were already marked down and to make it better they were 50% off of the LOWEST price on the tag and because it was Black Friday they were giving out 20% off coupons!
I was able to score this bag, originally $358.00 for just $84.00!!! Every month I put away $7-$10 just for my 1 splurge of the year, and depending on what I have come Black Friday that is what I use to fill my Coach love for the year. Some years I end up with more then 1 bag depending on the sale that I find and how much I have been able to put aside each month.
So even though Coach is normally a brand that is out of my price range, with saving small amounts through out the year and hitting up an awesome sale I am able to frugally indulge and save a ton of money getting myself a Coach bag.
