Columbus Day Sales

Happy Columbus Day! I hope that you are one of the lucky ones to be enjoying a break from work and school today.

I was talking to a friend of mine who works in retail and they shared some juicy tidbits with me that you might like to know about. This year the retailers have not ordered as many holiday decorating items as they have in the past because they know that the general public are not buying as many items. So if you see an item that you just LOVE you should consider going ahead and picking it up because there may not be many of them. However, in anticipation of slow sales, the stores will be starting their sales on holiday items TODAY!

Here are a few stores that are having sales today:

Kohl's - 40%-50% off family apparel, outerwear, shoes, handbags, accessories. Same with the Home Sale that includes flatware, dinnerware, small appliances, bedding, candles and decorative accents.

Michaels Crafts - 40%-50% off on frames, Christmas Stems, bushes and garlands, yarns, beads and more.

ToysRus - for anyone with kids gifts to buy check out their sales. Just about anything and everything a child of any way could want. They're even running a special where you get free toys purchase. - Major discounts and an offer to save an extra 25% off all sale items with code 1492 at checkout.

Nine West - various sales including 30% off boots and discounts on work wear.

NORDSTROM- is having a sale this weekend with shoes, apparel, and clothing up to 40% off. They are offering free shipping on shoes. Use code SHOES at checkout to get free shipping when you buy any pair of shoes. Offer ends on 10/26.

I'm thinking it's a good thing I've had a ton of medical bills with piggy the bronchitis boy or I'd be out shopping today -- which I don't need to do as we're trying to pare down around here!
