Come on, get savvy!

Oh, just think of what you’ll save if you try at least one of our Savvy Shopping Tips. Here are our top 5 ways to save:


Get app-ed up

Man yourself mobile-y with money-saving apps! With ShopAdvisor you can search and scan barcodes for products, watch products, view their price history and best time to buy, set price time alerts, view reviews and share with your friends. It’s always important to keep a budget, especially during the holidays and with Mint, it’s easy to keep track of your spending on the go. Shopping for deals is one thing, but it’s more important to follow a budget.


Get @ it

There’s plenty of savvy shoppers with awesome tips and deals to follow on Twitter. Check out:

Get flashy

Ever since Gilt Groupe popped up a few years ago, flash sale sites are all over the web! Designer duds for less for a limited line – you know the drill. Here are some great sites:

Gilt Groupe ~ Rue La La ~ Haute Look ~ Beyond the Rack ~ Editor’s Closet ~ One Kings Lane ~ Fab


Get your closet right 

Clean out your closet, find gently-worn items that are in good condition and head to a consignment shop to sell them. In the meantime,  you’ll have more cash to put toward new things that you’ll actually have room for in your newly cleaned out closet. Here are some places where you can sell your things:

Closet Rich

Second Time Around


Luxury Garage Sale 

Buffalo Exchange

Crossroads Trading Co.

Plato’s Closet


Get subscribed

The best way to know when and where sample sales are going on is subscribe to your favorite designer’s emails or to subscribe to sample sale know-it-alls like Daily Candy and Top Button. And sample sale companies like Billion Dollar Babes and Decades Two (upscale vintage consigment) throw their own sales with numerous designers at one sale. So if you know want to know the deets, subscribe! subscribe! subscribe!

  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post,
    I’ll try to get the hang of it!
