Sale Calendar

Most companies hold 1 huge sale each year.  I wanted to track the dates so that we can keep them in mind for next year!  For companies that hold a sale every week (ahem: Macys), the F&F sale is typically when they have fewer exclusions even if the % off isn’t as big as some of the weekly sales.

If you have any new sales to add, please feel free to send me an email!

    This is a great idea!!! Every year around this time, when I’m craving spring shopping, I am always trying to figure out when Lord & Taylor, Bloomies, and Macy’s are having their next friends and family and wishing I marked it in my calendar from the previous year! I knew someone out there was keeping track ; )
