$500 HOLIDAY CHALLENGE 2012 week 4

We are already into March  and its time to update my progress on my $500 Holiday Challenge.Truthfully, my progress is sporadic at best. Last week I did go to JC Penny to check out their new way of pricing markdowns.  I have to say I do miss the 60% or 70% pink  markdown stickers.  Now the lowest price stickers are "blue".  Yea, its a whole new way of saving money.

 set of three fluffy socks, originally $14.00, marked down to $1.00!  I picked up 4 sets of these for granddaughters.

 This is one of the purses I found.  It was originally $29.99 and it was marked down to $3.00.  This will be for one of the granddaughters too.

 Still getting use to the "new" blue sale stickers............

 Monkey socks!  Too cute if you ask me!  Originally $14.99 each, marked down to $1.00 each.   These are for son's girlfriend and her daughter.

 Animal print purse with leather and chain strap.  Originally 29.99 marked down to $3.00.  Son;s Girlfriend is getting this.

 More pics of the socks!  Great deals!

 Last but not least, here are all the gloves I picked up too.  Originally $12.00 each, marked down to $1.00 too!  I picked up about 6 pairs for the girls in the family.

All this for only $11.00 dollars!!!   I love markdowns!!!

How are you coming along on your  Holiday Challenge?   Feel free to share!!

    How come I never see great sales like that?! :) This is a period where 4 of my nieces and nephews plus my son have birthdays, so I'm concentrating on what to get them. After early April, it slows down a bit. I haven't got anything yet, but I would have jumped at sale prices like yours! :)

    Great work on the deals. I have seen all of the advertising, but I haven't stopped by to check them out. I will have head over there tomorrow.

    Those are some awesome deals. I haven't done any holiday planning whatsoever as yet. This is something I have to put some thought into.

    I have a few things for Christmas gifts, but don't have any more ideas. That is always my downfall. Trying to figure out what to get people.
