Boxing Day the Mooser Way!

2 January 2011


Hi Moosers! Hope your holidays went well, that Christmas was fantastic and that you had a splendid New Years! I also hoped that we helped save you guys n' gals some money this year... that is my hope anyway. I am also very curious, so I'm hoping you don't mind if I ask you guys some questions! I would love feedback!

Did you all have a successful Boxing Day? What did you get, or if the list is too long, what stores did you shop at? :-D Did you shop primarily online, or in store.. or a good mixture of both?

Since I am grilling (nicely!) all of you... I will answer my own questions!

  1. I had a very successful Boxing Day, too successful.
  2. My list is fairly long so I will list the companies: Lush, The Brick, Roots, Pink Cherry, Banana Republic, Lululemon, Chapel Hats, London Drugs, Gelaskins, and Blockbuster.
  3. All except London Drugs, Chapel Hats, and Blockbuster were online purchases. So it represents my buying trends, 7/10 or 70% of my buying I do online.

Hope you can take some time to answer these few questions, I LOVE to hear what other people get! :-)

    I had a great boxing day. This year I didn't really NEED anything so I shopped just because I did mostly in store but I only went to reitmans and wal-mart( for wrapping paper and such) But I passed on the word on all your tweets!!

    1. Had a very successful Boxing Day, thanks to Bargain Moose! :) 2. Shopped at Best Buy (2 Blu-Rays, American Psycho for $6.99 and Hellboy II for $9.99), Game Stop (EA Sports Active: More Sports for $4.97!!!), Roots (sweater 1/2 price, $14.99), Michael's (lots of stuff on sale with an extra 25% off), and two online deals, Toys 'R' Us (Epic Mickey for $29.97) and shoes from Naturalizer (originally $110, I paid $39.99!) 3. Toys'r'us and Naturalizer were both online deals, the rest of my shopping I braved the crowds :)
    • Avigayil
      Wow. The Best Buy deals sound awesome... I'm trying to remember, but what is epic mickey?

    Boxing week was alright this year, definitely not as much bought as previous years, but somehow probably MORE money spent! Stores bought from include Pottery Barn (lamp totally not on sale!), Roots for a gorgeous leather bag (luisa in a rust bordeaux colour) that I love, and Penningtons for a winter coat. I think I can blame you for the last two purchases, would have never thought to check Roots for a new purse without seeing it mentioned on here! My hubby got himself a blu ray player for a good price from Best Buy, and I got my son a train set from TRU. I tried the Lush sale online but it was just too frustrating to sit and wait for it to go through. Roots was online, the other's were not. So thanks for helping me find a bag that I adore for a price that is so much better than I would have ever expected to pay for that size from Roots!

      I was eyeing up that bag too but got a diff one. Pottery Barn, I don't think they have one in my city... Do they have good boxing day sales there?

    My best Boxing Day purchase was a GE super capacity *gas* dryer from Bad Boy for $348. I thought the price was written backwards on the tag!

    I had tons of fun shopping. Did not get much stuff thought. Best buy got spy sweeper for my computer really cheap. Had a deal at the body shop 50% off whatever you could fit in a bag. Bath and body shop had some sweet deals. 50% off holiday gift packs and holiday shower gel/ lotion. Picked up 3 things for 6 bucks.

      Love the Body Shop deal! You can just get so many things for so little.
