I was out for specific things today, but I don’t think Labour Day sales have really spread here yet.

Does anyone else find all of these holiday sales to be a little odd?  End of season/boxing day/back to school makes sense.

Thanksgiving, Labour Day, Easter, etc. sales don’t.

@FoxyBride14:  lol I agree with you on that!

Just hearing the names of these sales sounds odd.  What’s next, extending the hours for labour day sales, when it originally was about having maximum number of working hours.

I’ve also worked retail on Remembrance Day during the moment of silence.  It felt very odd to have to be helping a customer during that.

I didn’t specifically buy these on Labor Day sale, but I just bought new rims for my car. Black Bullitt ones for my summer tires, gonna make my Mustang look so mean!

I was going to do all my shopping online today, but DH had to go buy some roofing supplies so I got to have us take an extended detour to the outlet mall!  Picked up 4 tops and 3 pairs of pants; very happy 🙂

FI got me my reception dress and clutch, both Ted Baker. They weren’t on sale though, it’s like that one section of Bloomies is sale-proof or something, not even a lousy 10%!

FI and I bought our wedding bands this past weekend. I took advantage of the LDW sale at Zales and got a $925 band for about $730 (after tax and warranty). FI bought his at Larson (?) jewelers online for a whopping $99 (tungsten).

@FoxyBride14:  I bought groceries and laundry bins. That’s about it, didn’t take advantage of actual labor day sales.

I went to Old Navy and got some basic black tee’s and this super awesome Wonder Woman top!  I would post a pic, but the old navy website won’t load on my work computer.

@FoxyBride14:  Way too much! I cleaned out my disaster of a closet, and told myself I couldn’t buy a thing until I knew for sure what I really needed to add to my wardrobe. After I did that, I went a little overboard at American Eagle, Express, Old Navy, and Gap. I swear I’d actually have more money if I didn’t work, and wasn’t constantly shopping for work clothes! I did get great deals on a new suit and winter jacket for DH at least.
