Yey! It is March and Spring is here. Green, new blooms are in sight. I am so happy that my Amaryllis plant is growing its leaves again. I will be in trouble if it does not. 🙂
Anyway, I think of buying some flowering plants one of these days. I want some replacements (for my roses?) of some sort. Maybe I can find new plants when we go to Tyler because there are nurseries and plant vendors along the road. I bought two rose plants last year for a very reasonable price.
‘Hoping to see the flowers soon.
Mine is just simple. Whenever I think of buying some things, I go to the stores and look if they are on sale. If not, I just find something else that fits to my budget. Often times I end up buying more than I want (chuckles).
My habit is to go to the mall or go to the stores I constantly visit…like Old Navy for example. I went there yesterday. While doing some window shopping, I saw this piece of lingerie. It is pretty and perfectly in my size. The price is only $.99 and I bought it. What a deal! 🙂
…to give as gifts to someone. You see I have items such as accessories, clothing, and others NEW/SECOND HAND for sale. And I want to sell them in a VERY low price with *FREE Shipping. I will post photos and specs soon. For interested parties, please do not hesitate to contact me here: mgmarly (at) gmail (dot) com.

Now that I am working on a retail store, I learned a few things on my shopping lifestyle. It has been a habit to go to the mall or stores to buy stuff on sale. What I learned is that, shoppers should be aware of extra discounts on merchandise with markdown prices. This time of the year, huge sale on fall and winter items are on, because stores are getting ready to display items for the spring and summer. Also, stocks from housewares, furniture, and cosmetics are in huge discounts. I bought a lot of things not only for myself but for everybody in the family too.
So if you have the funds or savings to shop this time of year (for gifts or for future use), go to your favorite stores today and enjoy shopping!
Finally, the second package has arrived Leyte in good condition. I was about to call the forwarder in California to ask for the delivery status.
When I opened my Chikka this morning, I received a text message from my younger sister expressing her happiness with the gifts she and her children received from parents-in-law. I called my mother immediately to confirm the package’s arrival. She said it was delivered directly to the house late in the afternoon. They are very thankful for the gifts my honey’s Mom and Dad gave them. Everybody is excited opening the presents. Well that is good news!
Then I called my mother-in-law to let them know that the package has arrived. I also told her how happy my family is with the stuff she and Dad sent them.
You know I get so excited when occasion like this comes. Holiday preparation is in my priority list. The Christmas tree is up and the shopping list is ready. Do you know who is on the top of my shopping list? Me!!! Yes, I shop stuff for mostly for myself. Why not? I have the money to spend. I saw lovely items in stores online and at the mall. I do not buy something expensive because to me it is just a waste of money. I am a budget conscious person so I make it sure everything I buy is very affordable as well as of good quality.
So I bought undergarments from Victoria’s Secret and Old Navy. Then there was a pretty sweater I got from Dillard’s. I saw a cute leggings from a store at Ridgmar mall which the purple color is appropriate for the purple Kathy handbag I bought from TJMax. It is not obvious that I love mall hopping, is it? ^_^
Do you already have a shopping list for the holidays? If none, well you better start writing down those important stuff you want to buy for Christmas. You know the stores are having huge sale right now. Everybody is looking for good deals here and there. Some stocks for the items you need might not in display so you should begin your Christmas shopping.
There are shoppers, like me, who like to go to the stores or to the mall during the weekends…preferably on Saturdays or Sundays. I find it more enjoyable shopping on those days because I see more people and the stores are crowded a bit. Sometimes discount sale and promotions end on a Saturday that is why more people rush to the stores.
My plan is to shop for gifts during the weekends so that my honey and I can go around town for other weekend activity. Honestly I am still figuring out what stuff I will buy for my honey’s niece and nephews. I want the gifts to be of quality but not expensive. Anyway, I will let you all know soon after I get these things done.
Happy holidays in advance and I hope you will enjoy shopping for gifts!
