Boxing Day Shopping Purchases

 { the greys }

Boxing Day is the biggest shopping day of the year in Canada, it takes place on December 26th and it's always a mad house at any mall - it's like the Black Friday of Canada.  The last two years my bff and I hit the mall before it opened and had a hay day.  This year, we ended up going much later in the day, but I still scored big time.  Not all the sales are fantastic, and sometimes not even worth it at all, but everything I purchased was 50% off and more than worth it.  I made purchases from Mexx, Jacob and The Bay and haven't had that successful shopping (and splurging) like that in a long time.
