Lucky Girl

So...you saw my post about brown handbags?
And you remember how I said I hope my Virginia mom was not reading?
She has an intervention planned if I purchase another bag.
Mom...stop...do not read any further.

 
 
So....the Marine Corps Exchange was having their BIG anniversary sale this weekend.
D needed some new sports shirts for work and they carry Brooks Brothers there,
so we decided to head over this morning and get a few.
 
We walked in and I got my "scratch off" extra saving coupon that could NOT be scratched off
until your purchases were rung up and then they would add the additional discount...
5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, or 25%...
and my sweet and statistic-loving husband reminded me that 99% of them are only 5% off
 
On the way to men's clothing, sweet D detoured to this department....
 
 
 
And I was going with him until I saw THIS...Anniversary-Two
Notice the COACH 20% off.....
 
So I detoured to here...
 
And LOOK what I found....
 
It was the ONLY one of its kind in the entire Coach department...
and it retails for $298, sells for $237 and the Exchange...and was 20% off that price!
PLUS....I had my scratch off coupon.
Hmmmm.....I grabbed the bag and found my sweet husband,
who was still in the electronics department...
and casually "slipped" it into the basket.
 
My husband, who totally spoils me, probably rolled his eyes...
and ignored it.
Oddly, the last time we were at the Exchange,
a Navy blue Michael Kors bag "accidentally" fell into our basket
and found a new home in my closet.
 
Well...I was feeling major guilt because I NEED to finish several projects around the house...
and I did just get a new bed...
so I decided that if my scratch off coupon was for only 5% more off,
I would return the bag...I told D my plan.
 
My scratch off coupon was....additional 25% off!

(disregard hat hair from USNA football game today)

Love my new bag....
It ended up being more than half off and no sales tax!
Oh...and we did get D his shirts....all on sale with additional 25% off too.

BEST husband EVER

Guess who is not taking me with him to the Exchange again?
Good thing I can get in with my own military id.

Gorgeous bag and good deal! I am looking for a bag like that-a grown up bag since my totes are getting pretty dirty!
