To prepare for moving to Minnesota in January, I’ve started stocking up on warm winter wear. Boots, sweaters, mittens, thermals, thick scarfs, wool leggings… let’s just say, with all I need, I’ve never been more thankful for a buy one get one free sale.
I know sales are gimmicks—that most things are overpriced to begin with—but I’m a bargain hunter at heart, and finding a good deal feels good. So over fall break, my mother and I scoured Northern Indiana for the best sales. Let me tell you, it was worth the extra driving around. (Northern Indiana ladies, check out Flourish Boutique in Granger for beautiful, quality clothing at an affordable price!)
“Never settle for something when you can look at other places,” mom always says. And she’s right; sometimes the best things in life take time and require lots of patience. Like this Harvest Applesauce recipe, which slowly cooks for 10 hours in order to reach perfection. You’ll want to eat it when the smell fills up your house after one hour, but you’ll just have to wait.
