One of the Best Weeks of the Year: the Semi Annual Sale!

I count down the days until the Bath and Body Works semi-annual sale starts. Ever since I was a pre-teen it was such an exciting event for me. Tell me I’m crazy but I really did get excited over it! My mom would look at me like a freak (she was never much of a shopper anyway) and everyone else was like “eh yeah, its a good sale.” My reaction? “A good sale?! Its an amazing event where we can stock up on our favorite things and save some for gifts and such. Its not just a sale.”

But just like with anything on sale you have to know what’s worth the buy and what’s not. I have a tendency to buy things because they’re on sale not because I like them or even need them. So after scouring the store for the past several days in a row here’s my list of things to skip and things to buy.

Hit or Miss

Miss- Seriously its only half off and its still $10. Unless you're in desperate need of spa products its not that great of a deal.

Bath_And_Body_Works
Hit- This pretty little bottle is only $4 as opposed to $12. Stock up for yourself and in case you forget a birthday.
Bath_and_Body_Works
Miss- I love soap but this stuff is only half off and it really doesn’t last very long (especially with kids around).
Candles
Hit- These candles burn for a pretty long time. And they’re only $11 each. Move over Yankee Candle!
Body_Lotion
Miss- Unless you really love the scent these are just not the best buys. I think they’re like filler scents for the store, they take up space and occupy us until better things come out.
Stress_Relief
Hit- I love this stuff. I gave some to my boyfriend to help him with stress relief and it really worked! And its only $6 this week.

Sometimes I just don’t think we appreciate the little things anymore. We live life so fast and don’t see the small miracles that happen everyday. True happiness is found when you learn to love things that don’t seem to be that big of a deal in the grand scheme of life, but in fact they make life grand.
