I haven’t been to a Boxing Day event for the last two years, but this year I decided to since I felt a need for new clothes. The last piece of clothing I bought was literally six months ago :S Besides, I got some Christmas money to spend! Oh, and my boyfriend got me a Sephora gift card for Christmas that I wanted to use, but unfortunately Sephora did not have a Boxing Day sale going on, so I’m saving the gift card for another day. (Well, I received an e-mail from Sephora that ‘selected items’ were 50% off, but when I went, it was like … three or four selected items. And nothing interesting).
I didn’t attend Boxing Day sales for the last couple of years because I feel that the sales that go on during Boxing Day aren’t big enough that I care to go. A lot of stores will have 50-70% off but then say it’s on SELECTED ITEMS and it turns out that there’s only like, a few things that qualify and they are usually stuff that they are trying to get rid of anyway. Or you go into a store that has a decent sale going on (30-40%?) but all they have are the L sizes and XXL’s and stuff. Again, stuff they are just trying to get rid of.
But this year, since I wanted new clothes, I decided to go. I went with my sister, we woke up at 7AM to be at the mall by 8AM. The mall usually opens at 11AM, but for Boxing Day they were opening early. When we got there, there was already a lot of people, and of course, by noontime, it was jam packed. We started getting super cranky actually, because we were tired and it was so crowded. When we left Mall 1, we got some McDonald’s from a drive-through, practically inhaled the food and headed to Mall 2, where we were back in high spirits after a bit of rest and food :D
I think for Boxing Day, I actually didn’t spend that much (not as much as I could have!) I spent just over a hundred dollars, somewhere around $110? Which isn’t that bad, I think. Everything I bought for myself was clothes, pictures below! Prices are approximations of what I remember, I can’t be bothered to remember if it was $X.99 or $X.79 or whatever, those darn cents! Hahaha.
I don’t normally buy T-shirts with text/graphics on them but I saw this and thought it was cute! From Mimi McQueen; original price $22. Sale: 50% off, paid $11.
