I just went to NM Palo Alto for the presale and boy, was it crazy! It was my first time there and I managed to get 3 Chanel items..i wanted to buy all of them just because i was lucky enough to grab SOMETHING but then i let two of the items go. now, i thinking..do i really need the last item that i kept ? it's a pink caviar wallet (so cute) but i already have a wallet..lol...darn pre-sale. do you ever get tempted and buy things that don't scream your name but think its cute? sorry for the long post..i'm currently also tempted by the baby animals flap but..i know i have other bags i want more but..yeah...its on SALE!

yep, totally know what you mean. sales are evil. i always end up getting a bunch of stuff that i'm okay with (not like head over heels in love with).

Totally tempted. But then you ask yourself do I really need it? Usually not but it is hard to pass up a sale.

I do get tempted but it has to be something that I would have loved enough to buy at full price - if not, then it really isn't a sale to me - it is just burning money.

Like tomorrow I will go by NM - mainly to pick up a jacket for my DH on hold, but...........I will also stop by and take a look at the Chanel trunk show items....might place a pre-order or two or maybe not, but I have no real interest in the sale unless a couple of the Chanel items I am looking for are on sale. That doesn't seem likely though....from the SA and she seemed surprised when I told her I had no interest in any other the other misc. designer bags going on sale.

Really if I would not have bought it a full price - then I usually walk away...I have made the mistake of buying things on sale that seemed great at the time - only to later feel like I wasted money.....:tdown:

And I don't know about the rest of you but I am still waiting on my money tree to bloom...hahahaha.

I only get tempted if it's something I actually like. Im pretty good about not buying something just because it's on sale or b/c of the brand name. There is plenty of stuff that is brand name that I find quite ugly so the name alone won't sell me on it.

I am only tempted on shoes....but only the ones I have had my eyes on. If not, then no, I'll pass. I'd rather pay full price for the ones I really want and get good use out of them.

Not tempted for bags on sale at all.

I wanted to go there today but I got lazy. What kind of items did you see there? Does this mean there's nothing left if I go tomorrow? lol :-\
