The following words actually left my mouth this weekend:

"I bought a dress today. It was £75. BUT! It was reduced from £189. So, really, I just saved us £114."

Yeahhhh. It made sense in my head.

  1. Hahaha yeah. I discovered I have an obsession with Paul&Joe sister. Pretty much every thing she makes (and especially the sweaters and blouses) is so spot on my style. The colors, the patterns, the prints. And I just discovered yesterday that some of her stuff is on 50% discount. So 120 EUR for a jumper instead of 240.... Ouch.
    I sadly did not get anything.
    Your reasoning totally makes sense.

    1. Ooh, I'd never seen Paul & Joe sister before. Now I'm obsessed too, and I can't afford it either. Nooooo!

  2. I have done this a few times. I trawl the designer outlet on Asos and am generally about to buy when I stop myself. But I have bought reduced things thinking I have a bargain - mostly when I worked in a department store. So. Much. Temptation.

  3. I am very guilty of doing this too. I've also found that, given two items of the same price, I'll always lean towards buying the one with the bigger reduction, even if it's not as nice! Stupid.

  4. I see no problem with this! Did you also do 'I'll wear it loads, so per wear it will be REALLY cheap.

  5. Once many moons ago I came home with an item of clothing I'd bought for half price,I was feeling quite triumphant till your uncle uttered "just think how much you'd have saved had you not bought it"!! I'd like to say that influenced my future behavior ....happily no !!

  6. I'm totally with you on this one! I do it all the time :)
