I did some shopping…okay it was an all out haul over the Labor Day weekend.  I hadn’t been shopping my entire pregnancy, and pretty much in an entire year.  It felt really nice to finally get some things just for me (and well a few things for baby too).  When I shop I usually just do the weekly grocery and household shopping.  Even if I go somewhere like Bath & Body Works, I rarely shop for myself there anymore.  I typically just get soaps or home fragrance or bodycare for my husband, since he like the Men’s shower gels and body sprays. 

I wear a uniform to work everyday, so I don’t have a huge need for lot’s of outfits…right now.  When baby comes, I’ll be out in the civilian world a lot more than I am now and I needed some new threads to wear.  I’m so excited about everything I got, because its not only great transition clothes from pregnancy to non-pregnancy, but I can wear them throughout all 4 seasons.
I definitely got my money’s worth, getting 45% off everything I bought at Old Navy.  I also saved at Bath & Body Works, using a $10/30 purchase coupon for my bodycare and a free item coupon with my soaps to get the body splash for free.  And I can’t forget the 10% military discount I received on my purchase at Charlotte Russe.  If anyone knows me, they know I never pay full price for anything retail.  I been shopping for a long time, and if its one thing I know how to do well, its shopping.

Okay, now on to the haul.  Check my video below to see all the goodies that I got:

    1. So glad someone can relate! Its definitely an every blue moon type of thing, and probably something I won’t be doing for an even longer time once baby gets here.

      Thanks so much for following! I’m following you back as well!

  1. Congrats on your new addition! I just had a baby 2 months ago and I haven’t shopped for myself in a very long time. This past Labor Day I also did a full shopping haul and got Fall/Winter (and some can transition to Spring) stuff for me and the kids. It felt so good picking out clothes and getting back to myself. I always make a list of things I want to buy. This season I decided I want to lean towards a look that includes lots of black pieces with pops of color and pattern. I love Fall and I can’t wait to wear my new stuff!

    I’m an Army Wife so I can relate to never paying full price! I ask EVERY store if they do military discounts. 🙂

    1. Thanks so much and congrats on your precious little one! I didn’t even plan to get nearly that much stuff, didn’t make a list or anything, lol! That’s probably why everything has a completely different style from the next thing. I will say though that you can never go wrong with black. I love a pop of color against it, you can really make the most out of a basic black top or bottom with it.

      I can’t wait to wear my new things either! I hope you enjoy yours!
