While winter was over staying its welcome in Chicago I was keeping my eyes on the prize (and my coupons). Spring Cometh! I have been diligently working on my shoe game because at the beginning of last summer I realized I was in a bad spot. I owned one pair of sandals and one pair of flats. I know right, a nightmare. I bought a few pairs in the essential colors and I really worked those four pairs the entire summer. But this summer I will do better!! It's not sandal weather just yet so I am working on my flats and gym shoes.
The great part about spring is the sales. You can find a lot of great winter or fall things going on sale because the stores are preparing for spring, but you can also bank on the sales and promotion for the new spring clothes. From my experience these sales are no where near as good as the end of season sales but you can still get some good stuff. Another thing to look out for is Easter, Father's Day & Mother's day coupons and sales. Even if you aren't buying Easter Sunday attire or a Mother's Day gift you can still take advantage of the deals most stores are offering at this time. I took advantage of the 30% coupon Payless sent me as part of an Easter promotion and bought the colorful flats pictures below. I ended up only play $16.99 (before taxes) for these shoe. On a different day my mom and I went back and took advantage of a friends and family 30% coupon, allowing me to scoop up that darling pair of blush/nude flats.
