How to Find Deals

I purchased this amazing coat back in August. I have been waiting and waiting for the weather to get cold enough to wear this coat. Fun story about this coat, I found it at T.J. Maxx but I was planning to purchase a jacket just like this from Nordstrom. I got this one for much less of course. Today I want to share with you how to find deals on clothes.

  1. Shop around. If you are shopping department stores make sure you know where the sales are. I find that many department stores carry the same lines, so if one store is having a sale shop there of course.
  2. Wait – If you wait most likely the item you have been looking for will go on sale or promotion. For example, I love J-Crew and the Gap but their clothes are expensive full price. Every other week they have a 40% off sale. That is when I attack!
  3. Use your points – Many stores offer reward points… USE Them eventually you will get a coupon or your points will add up and you could get a dollar off coupon.
  4. Think second hand – currently, I am thinking and planning to purchase a luxury bag. My current plan is to find a really good used one. I also do the same thing with coats. Make sure they are gently used.

Happy Hunting!

Tips for Black Friday Shopping

  1. Be Energized- Being tired on Black Friday is all apart of the experience. Make sure you have your venti-sized coffee in hand so you can stay focused and get those amazing deals.
  2. Be Comfortable- We already established you’re going to be tired, there is nothing worse than being tired and uncomfortable. Check out my post on what to wear for Black Friday Shopping.
  3. Be Patient- You already know everywhere is going to packed. Acknowledge it and go with it. You are going to be waiting in long lines, people will be rude but that is all apart of the experience.
  4. Have a game plan- Determine ahead of time what you are looking for and what stores you want to visit. If you are looking for a new TV (like me) you may want to go to Best Buy first because they will sell out of the door-busters really quick. Then move on to the other places on your list. CHECK OUT MY POST ON THIS YEARS GAME PLAN.
  5. Have Fun- Black Friday is an experience, me and my family like to go and just have a good time. Remember most of the things you are shopping for are material things and we can all live without them. Enjoy your time and be happy we are in the Christmas season now.

Recently, I found these amazing pants at Express. Lately,  I feel i’ve been finding some great items there.

Today, I wanted to talk to you all about how I like to shop to find the best deals. I have three super easy tips that can help you find really great things in store. Let’s hop into my tips.

  1. Do a quick walk through the entire store, and always check out the sale rack. Sometimes you can find some of the best items on the sale rack.
  2. Have an idea of what you are looking for. Lately, I’ve been in the need of pants that I could wear to work, so I focused more on that area of the store.
  3. Use the dressing room. I’ve noticed that sometimes when things are on an amazing sale they may be final sale. Before you buy make sure you try.

I have another look that is majority from Old Navy. Seems like I shop there a lot. It’s funny I wouldn’t consider myself to love Old Navy, but apparently I do. They have amazing deals, and cute on trend items. Plus, they have great things for winter and fall. After linking the products I found a few more shirts I plan to get. Would you like to see what I am loving? I am excited to shop and share 🙂

First I love shopping at the thrift store. Often you find clothes that people have purchased and for one reason or another the item was never worn but given away.

Here are tips to make your experience great:

  1. When shopping at the thrift store be sure to look for brands you know last throughout the years. Some of my favorite brands are JCrew, Gap and Banana Republic. I live really close to Washington DC so finding these brands if fairly easy.
  2. Try to find newer pieces. If you find a shirt that is faded there is nothing you can do to bring it back to life.
  3. Shop in well to do areas. Going to the thrift store in more affluent areas you will be acquiring clothes from the people who have gotten rid of them.
  4. If you can find an item but you know you can find a similar item new for a smilier price I think it is better to just buy new. For example, I usually buy my basic shirts from target for about $5 I am not going to buy something like that form a thrift store.
  5. Go early in the morning. If you are looking for great items in good condition for a good price, other people are too. So beat them to the punch and get there when the store opens. You can always go out for breakfast when you are done.

HAPPY SHOPPING

Mid-Winter Wants

Hi Friends, Happy Thursday!

Can you believe we are almost half way through winter? I am getting so excited to be able to start shopping for spring clothes. Fun fact.. I love spring. I am holding out as long as I can to start purchasing spring items. Okay, now that we have gotten my favorite season out of the way. Here are some picks I plan to purchase form this site. I really need to focus on bottoms, but it is almost impossible for me to purchase pants online, that normally is a special trip that needs to be made to the mall, which I plan to do soon. Anyway, if you are in the need for some mid season updates I suggest you check out Shein. They have really trendy outfits that are at an amazing price!!!
