Here we are again! That time of the year! The excitement of shopping can become overwhelming when it comes to keeping our budget. But good thing the thrill of saving excites me more! Before shopping I HOPE you are being savvy consumers and asking yourself these two questions:
1. Where do you plan to shop during the holidays?
2. And what items do you plan to purchase?
These are important questions to ask ourselves, because they play a huge role in determining the quality of gifts we get and the amount of money we're going to end up spending.
Lucky for me (and for you), I know a place where we can find awesome gifts for everyone on our list and it won't leave us crying out of the store because we've overspent. What is this magical store I speak of?! JCPenney!!!
This holiday season, JCPenney wants to challenge everyone with the #JCPchallenge to beat their holiday budget by getting more and spending less. Honestly, I'd hardly consider it a challenge because they make it so effortless! I've done it and I know you can too. As a one-stop shop, you can find everything you need from contemporary fashion and decor, to toys, tech gadgets, novelty items and so much more! What's even better is the value you get for these high-quality products.
During my first holiday trip to JCPenney, I ended up getting an amazing bargain on a few items that would have cost me WAY MORE anywhere else. Check out some of the gorgeous pieces I picked up. This super comfy, stylish AND multi-functional MIXIT women's wrap can help you go from casual to work to date night with a few simple tweaks to the shawl.
And it goes so well with all types of outfits for the season….
And to enhance this look, I found these beautiful earrings.
These 1/10 CT TW diamond and sterling silver earrings are normally priced at $124.98 but as a bonus buy, I was able to get it at over 75% off!
This is just an example of what you can expect to get from JCPenney this season. And let's not forget all the beauty goodies you can find at Sephora inside JCPenney!
Here are a few other of my favorite things that I found at JCPenney (from toys, tech, apparel, home décor, novelty times, and more)…
JCPenney also has some very exciting news! For many years, JCPenney has been referred to as Jacques Penné, a name referencing to it's brand name items at affordable prices.
