Okay, well... I guess I should own up to it... I did buy myself some presents for Black Friday/Cyber weekend. I mean. We all know it happens. But this year, I really shouldn't have. My credit cards are not in a great place, and I have to get gifts for the family still too. But well, I'm just not alway a very responsible person. What can I say? I didn't get too crazy, and I close out several wishful thinking carts I had filled. So what did I end up getting? I'm glad you asked. Because who doesn't love reading about a bargain?!
First, I hit up Second Round Equestrian. I wanted the snowman pins from Pinsnickety, and I knew they had them. They also had the hind boots that match Al's show Equifits so I got those for him. They don't count as bad though. Because they're for AL not for ME. Duh.
Next I found myself over at The Tack Hack. They really have some great deals throughout the year, and I cave fairly often over there. I've been lusting over the Monterrey coat from RJ Classics for a long while. But they're pretty expensive. Like $550 expensive and since I barely show, that seemed beyond silly to invest in. The Tack Hack didn't have the gray one that I REALLY want, but they had the navy herringbone which is also really pretty. And with their sale I paid $173. Pretty sweet deal if you ask me. Should I have even spent that? Probably not. But what's done is done.
I stocked up on a bunch of treats for the horses from a few places too, but those don't count as illegal purchases since those are their holiday gifts. But I did have one more stop that I shouldn't have made but also have no regrets... And that was to Sprucewood Tack in Canada. They're my go-to for in stock Ogilvy baby pads, because even with the shipping fees, they're much cheaper than anyplace else. Well. For Black Friday they had them for $35 US. Couldn't pass that up! So I got two all navy pads and two hunter green with navy trim.
So that's my confession. I bought some presents for me. But I saved SO MUCH MONEY! Kind of. I'd have saved a lot more if I'd bought nothing. But what's the fun in that?
