Parking by Chanel
Parking in the garage at the nearby Saks was $35 for over 5 hours or $12 with a validated stamp with minimum $10 purchase.
“Why pay the garage when we can park and get something at Saks too?” I said convincingly to my husband. Hesitantly he agreed, and we marched up to Saks where I quickly moved from Estee Lauder over to Chanel with such familiarity as if it were my own living room; in a few short minutes I had purchased a “much needed” Chanel compact and got my parking ticket validated.
“So let me get this straight,” my husband said to me. “You just bought a $48 compact so we could get a $12 parking stamp to avoid $35 parking?”
“Exactly!” I replied proudly. He escorted me out of the department store rolling his eyes.
I later shared my savvy Chanel parking story on Facebook to which one friend replied, “You know, if scenarios like this had been used as math problems in school I might have actually enjoyed it.”
