CLEARANCE ITEMS I ALREADY OWN
Doesn’t it kill you when you are still making flexpay payments on items you bought months ago and now they are on sale for half or a quarter of the price. :womanfrustrated:
I also Mark everything with the red hearts so that it alerts me if the price changes. Catch up that way most of the time . HSN sends A lovely email telling me how glad they are I saved some money . I really do like it when you catch it and save that money .
My sentiment exactly. The good news is you’ve got 25 new bucks you can spend Semiqueen!!!
Absolutely yes it is so upsetting to be making payments and see you at drop drastically in price !! I’ve gotten to the point where I keep a watch to make sure nothing drops before my 30 days is up and I’ve caught quite a few that way . But after the 30 days it just leaves you feeling bummed out. But if I love it enough I’ll pay full price before it sells out .
I understand , at times I have been aggravated and put myself on a buying halt .
Anyway I am glad you are back .
I hate when that happens ?! It is a sickening feeling. :smileyfrustrated:
However, for the past 3 wks, I have saved a lot of money thx to having to return multiple items. I have been running into quality and sizing issues. My 2 wk “situation” also kept me from shopping, bc I felt resentful. :smileymad:
I’m getting the itch to shop, so I may take a peek at the Clearance…
Yep seeing items go on sale after the 30 days is like ‘turning the knife.’ I save everything I want on my wish list and then will have this overwhelming feeling w/the first mark-down everyone is going to buy it, NOT! I cave in well before ‘clearance.’ However, I do well w/markdowns on my wish list showing up and receiving ‘spendable cash’ for the difference w/in the 30 days, so I guess I’ll calm down about this. LOL
Those situations are sad! You don’t know whether to laugh or cry!
But laugh anyway! It feels better and takes the sting out!
? yes!!! that’s the worst, unless it’s in the 30 day price guarantee. but, ouch, when still paying and the price drops. :catfrustrated:
I put everything in my Favourites too, but there are times when I just have to have it… and I mean RIGHT NOW! *lol*
For example, Slinky stuff. I wear an XL in Slinky and, it seems to me, that that Size always sells-out first– and in a hurry. So, I just bite the bullet and buy it anyway. But, I still keep it in my Favourites so that I can be alerted if it drops in price within the 30-days.
Here’s a crazy story… I bought a Turquoise Slinky Crochet dress 2-years ago, (May 2014), and haven’t been able to find a matching jacket for it in all that time. Even Slinky’s various jackets, (supposedly in the same colour), didn’t match, *sigh*.
Lo & Behold, Curations came out with a Crochet Jacket that matched perfectly… exactly two years later! (May 2016) I HAD TO HAVE IT, (HAD to have that colour! *lol*), and paid the egregiously over-priced $50-bucks for it. Now, it’s on clearance for $20-bucks… which should have been the price for it in the first place!
I’m gonna buy another one in White and dye it Pale Pink as I desperately need a Pale Pink jacket and can’t find one anywhere! *lol*
I would want to say OUCH!
If you find something in the future that you like put it in your Favorite even if it sales out some will cancel or it will go on the sale/clearance. You have a beautiful item there.
Aaaargh! You ain’t kiddin’, Diva! I bought two Heidi pieces, a couple months ago, and now they’re on sale!
‘Knotting Hill’ 464-522
‘Beguiling Baguettes’ 496-820
However, in all fairness, I bought her ‘American Icon’ necklace for a song. Usually $280, it was up for a short-time sale at $99… so, quite the steal, if I do say so myself, *lol*! I guess it all works out in the wash, eh?
JaDiva, this is why I have learned, the hard way, to mostly purchase on clearance.
Having said that, an item I bought dropped $40.00 last week.
Well after my 30 days and less than 60. ugh!
These clearance prices are pretty good. Hope I can remember it for next year.
Definitely feel the pain but it’s great if you like the item so much you want another one!:smileyhappy:
