Patience is a Virtue

 Sometimes it pays to be patient, especially when it comes to shopping. Months ago when shopping at my local Lord & Taylor I found this gorgeous Catherine Malandrino skirt and French Connection top. I instantly knew that I wanted them in my wardrobe however both were way out of my budget. So I waited, checking each month to see if they went on sale. Both did come down in price, but were still out of range for me until finally last week a miracle happened. Both top and skirt ended up going on clearance and with a coupon I was able to score both items for $35 (thank god for coupons)! 
This almost never happens to me because most of the time I wait too long and it sells out or they no longer have my size but the shopping Gods were on my side this time. It felt so good to pick up the items that I wanted at the price I was willing to pay for them. I can't stress enough how important it is to take advantage of in store coupons and coupon codes when shopping online. It can be tedious to look for them, but in the long run it has saved me so much money.
