Mrs. Geek and I made our first pilgrimage down to a nearby outlet mall in about a year. We spent about $1000. We didn't necessarily mean to spend that much, and I don't mean to write this entry to show off. Neither of us had really done much of a wardrobe update in about a year, or in the case of my shoes, two to three years. By this, I mean to say that we mostly got stuff we believed we needed.
Here's how it all it broke down:
- For him:
four pairs of khaki pants, six pairs of dress socks, one pair of dress shoes, six pairs of briefs, one pair of athletic shoes, twelve pairs of athletic socks, three polo shirts, one linen dress shirt, one pair linen dress pants, one cotton dress shirt
- For her:
one mexican print skirt, one peasant blouse, one pair of linen crop pants, three ribbed tank tops, two v-necks, two crew shirts, one pair of Keds, five bras, and two packages of undies
- For both of us:
one Disney smoothie cookbook, one box of Cafe Du Monde Beignet Mix, one ceramic fondue set
- As gifts:
two Waterford vases as wedding gifts for the two weddings we attended last summer (yes, we're bad...), one Waterford votive for one of Mrs. Geek's relatives, one set of baby girl's clothing as a shower gift
Mrs. Geek and I think we did pretty well on value. Most everything we got was on sale. Pretty much all of it was needed. Now the post-consumer guilt is setting in. *grin*
