30DWC Day 10: H&M Winter Sale

There’s a sale. Wait. What? There’s a sale!

Hontuoni?! (Really?!)

So last Wednesday while I’m on my way back to school, I came across this bid red sign waving at me, it was shouting come here! come here! And I went inside and saw the crazy sale the store has. But since I was currently at work hour that time, I didn’t buy anything but I promised myself to go back the next day, and so I did.

I woke up around 1:00 o’clock in the afternoon today, read some blogs while eating my favorite bread and went to H&M as promised. But before going out, I told myself that I am not going to exceed my shopping limit, and not to buy things more than 500. The store is just 10 minutes walk away from home.

So let me take you inside…

Who wouldn’t notice this hug sign? It works.

Upon entering, the signs were shouting sale sale sale! Yeah I know.

They have different kind of cute tops to choose from And they’re as low as 300 JPY or 139.48 PHP.

There are also  dozens of skirts and shorts you can choose from as low as 500 JPY or 232.47 PHP.

Cutesy sleeveless tops.

I bought one of this. It is super cute!

You can get these tops for 100 JPY or 46.69 PHP. Di ba parang divisoria lang (though hindi pa ako nakakatry mamili dun).

I also bought one of this top for 400 JPY or 185.98 PHP.

For men’s section, they have a sale but not as crazy as the women’s.I was just wondering.

After getting all the items that I wanted, I went to the fitting room and voila! Please don’t judge my shoes and socks, it was really cold!

This top is only 300 JPY or 139.48 PHP. Isn’t it cute? lol.

I also love the skirt I bought it for 500 JPY or 232.47 PHP.

This red top is actually a one-piece, but I could wear it like this, defo not with the red skirt. Lol. I got it for 100 JPY or 46.49 PHP.

They also have dresses to choose from and prices varies. You just have to be patient. I was also tempted to get this shirt below but as I promised to myself I wouldn’t get anything exceeding 500 JPY. I made it!

But then I saw this cute coat or jacket, what do you call this? But I still find it expensive for my budget. Ha Ha. I decided just to wait until the store give it up for less than 100 JPY. I usually do this and it always works, when I really like something but it is still to expensive, I play the waiting game. It will take months, but atleast I didn’t spend money on things (I still don’t need). What if the item was sold? Well, it only means it wasn’t meant for me, if it still there, it’s for me. Parang pag-ibig lang, kapag sayo, eh di sayo. Kapag hindi, eh di hindi. Char! Patience is a virtue ika nga. Ha Ha.

I was already ready to go when I saw more cute stuff and you know what happened next.

They also have accessories section and they are a lot cute items on sale from 50 JPY or 23.25 PHP to 500 JPY or 232.47 PHP. But they7re always on sale so I didn’t bother to check today, I bought some cute choker last year and I still haven’t use all of them. I only have one neck 😀

And I happily left the store. I couldn’t wait to wear all of them. Hihi.

Ooopppssss… I have a tip. If you will go shopping at H&M, they always have big sales on summer and winter. Plus, you can download their H&M app and join H&M Club, I downloaded it today and I got another 10% discount each.

Don’t worry if you can’t read Japanese, they would help you and they have translation of the app.

Here’s my receipt, you would notice the 10% discount I got there for each item, plus you can gain points and exchange it for coupon.

That’s ¥2,385 or ₱1,116 for 10 clothes!

And another ¥1,700 or ₱795.51 for 5 clothes, and there were 2 items that wasn’t on sale.

I added the total of original prices, I was just wondering how much these would cost me if they weren’t on sale and the total is ¥31,533 or ₱14,755.36 I saved ¥27,448 or ₱12,848. BUT. I know I wouldn’t spend that amount of money, super kuripot ko kaya. Plus I only buy things I know I would need if they are on sale. Plus if I spend on material things, I would still balance it by making tipid sa kain hahahaha.


Admit it or not, we Filipinos love shopping lalo na kapg sale or may tawad.

So that ended my day, and I feel great today because it is my 10th entry for my 30 Day writing Challenge. Yay! I have 20 more days to go!


How about you? Where do you usually go shopping? Do you like buying branded items, ukay-ukay, or divsoria? What’s your favorite brand?
