I have a two-part strategy when SALE shopping: get the basics (requisites) when they are cheap; get the pretty things (optional) when you can afford them.
(So basically, everything is on limits.)
This past weekend I went SALE shopping and ended up with two bikinis: the basic black string bikini that everyone should own, body permitting, and an adorable v-neck bikini that will go perfectly with a pair of high-waisted lace shorts.
My bill at theOutnet: black bikini, $65; pink bikini, $70. Total with 20% extra discount coupon: $108.
…almost like robbery.
