Did You Brave the Post-Holiday Sales?

12/28/2006 at 04:55 PM ET

Jessica Alba hit the streets of Los Angeles last weekend to do all of her last-minute holiday shopping, but millions of Americans took to their local malls and boutiques yesterday to take advantage of great after-XMAS deals. And of course, let’s not forget about returning all of the ill-fitting but well-intentioned gifts you received this holiday season. While some of us prefer to do our shopping online (which is no less dangerous on our wallets), stars like Paris Hilton and Ashley Olsen were spotted joining the masses in a shopping frenzy yesterday. We want to know: Did you hit the shops yesterday? What was the best deal you scored?

Of course I was out!! When else am I going to get the most gorgeous pair of $90 Nine West pumps for $25?? I had to pull them from a pile that the salespeople hadn’t had time to put back yet, but they are the new loves of my life!

Oh I braved it all right… almost ended up tearing my freaking hair out, but the deals were good. I just have no patience for lines and tons of people.

I hate the holiday crowds. I’d rather shop a few weeks later and spend $X more on an item just so I don’t have to deal with the crowds and lines that these sales bring.

Bath & Body Works! I’m addicted to their stuff, and with practically everything in the store going for 50% to 75% off, for only $30 I got enough stuff to last me anywhere between 3-6 months in body products! I absolutely love that store, and take advantage of that sale every year.

2 pairs of Rock and Republic jeans for about 70% off! These jeans were almost $200 each originally and I got them for about $60 each!

I went shopping for after Christmas sales! It was a lot of fun and I got a lot of great deals. The line’s weren’t that bad either!


She is a beautiful girl.

I got to the mall at 9:00 A.M, I found some great deals at Saks that If I was there little late, all the cute stuffs would have been gone. I have never gone shopping this early before, but it was worth it. There was no line, nor wait to check out. I was in and out in an hour.
One thing I noticed, if you see the same sale merchandise at Saks, get it there because they always mark their sale merchandise little more than Neiman Marcus. Most of the time the same item onsale for over $25 different beteen Saks and Neiman Marcus, in my case it was even more.

I went shopping the day after Christmas and was not impressed at all with the sales. I think there were better deals before Christmas!

Sad to say as I get older (I am a whoopiong 29) I really hate dealing with the malls anymore, let alone in the holiday season. How sad is that?? LOL I just don’t the time anymore. :(

Jennifer on

I went shopping this year. Found some really cute things. My best deal was tv trays for my house that were $60.00 and I got the for $10.00. Not the greatest item in the world but I had been looking at getting some so why not for that price.

Haley on
