Happy Soldes!

28 Jan

Right now is a very special and important time of year in France: soldes. The shops here only have sales twice a year, now and in July. Since everything is normally so expensive, this is when everyone goes freaking crazy to get a good deal. Prices are slashed anywhere from 20% to 80% off, depending on where you are and how far into the sales you get. The longer you wait, the better deals, but there’s no guarantee that those shoes you’ve been eying will be there in another day.

It’s a lot of fun wandering around and looking at things, but I’ve been pretty good so far. I haven’t bought anything yet, but this weekend is the last of the sales and I plan on heading to the big mall at La Defense and getting a pair of boots and some nice pants. Hopefully, I can get away with some decent bargains with three weeks of saved pay. It’s not like I need to eat anything more than bread, right? That’s what I thought so.
