Is *anything* better than this?

I went to Eddie Bauer with my pal Laura the other day (ostensibly we were shopping for a wedding gift for other people, but the Eddie Bauer was there) and I found a fabulous pair of aubergine (read: purple) trousers in a smaller size than the last pair that I bought there, that fit beautifully, and were discounted from their original price ($49.50) to $19.99, and had another 30% taken off at the register (off of the price, not the trousers), so my final price for this fab purchase was 13.99!!!! (Plus tax.)

And I got a wicked cute travel radio/alarm clock that was originally $16.50 that after all the reductions I got for $2.50.

This is especially satisfying as usually when I shop for me one of the three critical shopping factors is a problem.

There are (lovely) clothes (in my size), but they (cost the earth) or
There are (lovely) clothes (that I can afford), but they are all (size 2 or something) or
There are clothes (in my size) (that I can afford), but they are (uglier than home made sin).

Thank you, EB!! Thank you, January sales!!
