The recession has been surprisingly good for my wardrobe. Retailers like H&M and Old Navy have been practically giving clothes away since before Thanksgiving.  H&M has been my go-to store for affordable fashion for several years, and I’ve been cleaning up on sweaters, tops, handbags, and hats during the trendy chain’s extended Post-Holiday sale where all sale items are marked Buy-One-Get-One-Free through Wednesday, January 21.  

I certainly don’t need any more winter clothes, but I won’t be able to resist popping into a couple H&M stores in mid-town Manhattan before the sale ends.  After all, it’s a good time to stock up on winter staples and pick up Christmas gifts for next year.  So run, don’t walk to the H&M nearest you.
