If you're anything like me, you are sure as fuck not making any kind of investment unless something's on sale. To me, it's just a smart lifestyle choice... hence why I just recently got a legitimate winter coat and a calendar for 2012. It's not procrastination, it's being savvy! Right?
Now is a FANTASTIC time to buy your winterwear. Most stores now have their winter clothes on some serious clearance to make room for spring clothes and you can really find some gems in those sale stickered racks. I got this fantastic military inspired coat from Target a few weeks ago for 50% off. It was originally $70-something dollars, but I got it for $30-something. I am completely in love with it -- it's comfortable, warm, and stylish. These pictures really don't show it off well enough (I tied it sort of awkwardly here and it looks like it might be missing a button, but I assure you it's not!), so here's a stock photo of the coat for prosperity.
Perhaps my greatest purchase of 2012 is the 6 Packs, 9 Lives calendar. I was originally jokingly linked to it by my boyfriend (whom I'm sure never fathomed that I'd actually buy it), but, as soon as I saw it, I knew I needed that shit on my wall (to put it poetically). The calendar itself is awesome and hilarious and arousing all at the same time and everyone should buy one, honestly. They're still on sale here on the foundanimals website for $7.99 (and that's including shipping!) and all the proceeds go towards helping cats in shelters.
In terms of more new stuff, I've made some exciting updates to Fat Budget Bitch! I now have a Blogs I Like section on the left side of the blog that you all should DEFINITELY check out, as well as a new Facebook fan page! If any of you want your blogs to be linked on that section, please email me about it!! As always, you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Because, not gonna lie, I feel weird just linking blogs I dig without the owner's knowledge of it.
As I mentioned previously, Fat Budget Bitch now has a Facebook fan page! So everyone should like it for timely, totally not annoying posts about when the blog is updated! Please.
