Summer is almost over and parents like me are most likely preparing for the start of the new school year. You bet I am talking about having to buy stuff for school. I kind of feel bad that IGM Kids Hub will have their sale over the weekend and I'm back here in Bacolod. I remember buying my son's rubber shoes (Hotwheels) for only Php 150 (super sale!!) and that very same shoes is still being worn by my son. I hate that I had to miss that -- not anymore!
SM will have their shoes and bags sale from May 14-17, 2015 at the SMX Convention Center. We went there earlier because they had a preview of the sale. We want to see what we can find for the kids. It was a last minute decision after seeing a post from my friend May from SM. My husband and I are anticipating the crowd tomorrow so being there at the preview will give us a chance to shop better. I guess you can say we made the right decision because we managed to shop and pay for everything in less than 2 hours. We didn't even wait in line to pay for the items.
We were greeted by rows of bags and shoes (as expected) as soon as we enter the center. I was hoping to see Florsheim shoes in one of those alleys but I guess I didn't pay much attention to the poster because it wasn't there. I am so glad to see Fila, Chicco, Fisher Price and Hotwheels though.

I didn't get too many photos because the guard says it is not allowed. Nevertheless, here is a rundown of my loot.
Item Sale Price Original Price
Backpack Php 575 Php 1149.75
Black Shoes - Hotwheels Php 199 Php 500 *
Rubber Shoes - Hotwheels Php 199 Php 500 *
Slippers - Disney Cars Php 80 Php 179.75
Socks Php 150 Php 169.75
Small Purse - Belladona Php 290 Php 799.75
Wallet - Kimbell Php 250 Php 499.75
Biofresh Socks Php 160 Php 229.75
City Lady Socks Php 199.75 Php 199.75 **
Rubber Shoes - Fila Php 1599 Php 3198
Both of the Hotwheels shoes do not have tags so I don't know how much the original price is. I put an estimate of Php 500 since their shoes range from Php 500 - Php 800 anyway. As for the City Lady socks, this is the first time that my daughter got this brand of socks so I don't have an idea how much this normally costs so I'm putting in the same amount as original price. If we had bought everything in full price, we would have paid a whopping Php 7426.25. But because of the mark down, we only paid Php 3701.25.
We saved Php 3724.50, which is actually 50%. If this ain't a steal then I don't know what this is.
