I didn't buy a thing at the mall today, despite the amazing sales - or actually, because of them. The zipper pouch where I keep all of my coupons, discount vouchers and gift cards is literally overflowing. I've got 20 percent off of this, $30 off of that, $10 free when you spend $100, 25 percent off when you spend $50. Then you get to the stores and they've got 10 other promotions. It's all just too much. I couldn't figure out which discounts were better and which offers I could combine. But I didn't want to chance paying more than I should, so I just walked out. I figure, even if my discount cards expire, the store markdowns will only continue to improve.
