Good deals found at Macy's, plus semi-annual sales at Yankee Candle and Bath & Body Works


Today I decided to go to Macy's and take advantage of the weekend sale and put my gift cards to good use. Yeah, I could have stayed home and watched the Bears game, but since I had the day to myself, Macy's won out.

And what a great day it turned out to be. Lots of clearance items still available in the men's and women's departments. Sale prices up to 65% off. Also, if you use your Macy's card, you get an additional 15% off. I had received a 20% off coupon in the mail.

Last year I had an experience at Macy's in Overland Park at the Oak Park Mall that didn't make me too happy. I was not able to use my coupon and gift card on the same purchase. It's either one or the other. I was told this by a manager when I tried disputing their policy. However, I am pleased to report that today at the Topeka Macy's, I was able to apply my 20% off coupon and use my gift cards on the same purchase. Thank you, Macy's, for changing that policy.

Also, I'd like to add that Yankee Candle is having their semi-annual sale. Lots of items starting at $1. Plus jar candles at $5, $10, and $12. I noticed these prices on the seasonal fragrances.

Bath & Body Works is also having their semi-annual sale. Take advantage of clearance prices on seasonal items and fragrances.

I know we tend to do quite a bit of shopping during the holidays, but I sure do enjoy the post-holiday sales and clearance prices.

SHOPPING OUT OF TOWN? Thanks for supporting our local merchants. That's sarcasm in case you don't recognize it.

First of all, most of their blogs are about local businesses here in Lawrence that employ Lawrence residents. Second of all, do you cry and complain when people from out of town (for let's say....a KU game) come to Lawrence and spend their $'s here? I think Lawrence will survive an occasional shopping trip to Topeka or KC area.

But if you buck up and spend the money for a good Waxman candle...say a 12" high 3" dia pillar it will last forever. I'm just getting to the end of three I bought two ... or maybe three...years ago. Local business. Great Quality. No overly scented, sickening 'flavors'.
