Normally I don’t get excited buying out-of-season items. There’s just something about buying something and waking up the next day excited about wearing it.
However, I was thinking about my cruise I’m taking in December and decided I could use a new swimsuit. I haven’t bought one in two years because my summers have been lame (boo for growing up!). But I went online to J.Crew, (aka: the catalog I lust after each Spring), and was shocked to see the many swimsuits I envied in March on sale for $9.99 each!
Here’s what I bought:
^Regular price at $80 but I bought this for $19.99 in aqua/blue.
^Regular price was $40. I bought it for $9.99 in a coral/pink color.
^Regular price was $38. I bought for $9.99 in a coral/pink color. (Isn’t the little flower adorable?)
It all cost me about $50 including shipping and tax, but I saved $108 by buying out of season. If it’s been a while since you bought a swimsuit, now is the time to buy them. J.Crew is my favorite, but Gap and Pac Sun and many others have great ones on sale too.
Now the only thing left to do is figure out how to get rock-hard abs and I’m all set! ;)
Does anyone else save money by buying out of season?
