End-of-Season Sales Shopping

I usually go shopping in mid or late January to get new clothes on super low sales. I heard that this year, the stores had a much smaller amount of inventory left after the holidays, because they had placed smaller-than-usual orders for this holiday season, anticipating dismal sales. For a sales shopper like me, this meant that they simply wouldn't have enough merchandise to have sales through late January. If I waited until my usual end-of-season shopping time, I would have been disappointed to discover that there would be nothing left!

So, I went shopping this weekend. I purchased very few items compared to what I usually buy during my bi-annual sales shopping sprees in January and August. I only bought 3 new sweaters, a vest, and a belt, all from H&M and NY&Co. Today's yellow sweater is one of my new purchases.

I found this scarf at a thrift store for a quarter when I was visiting my family in Pennsylvania in July. It was the same store where I picked up a blouse for fifty cents.
