Get Shopping

heads up, ladies! the sweet winter deals have nearly left the building. that's right, if you are looking to get cold lovelies for you or any of your family members you had better ske-daddle! a warning though: many things are GONE, it is late, but there are fab finds if you take a few moments to scout them out! here are a few stores with known bargains:

american eagle
old navy
ann taylor loft
the children's place
crazy 8
nordstrom(.com) while you are here, check out my uncle's shoes! jefferey campbell!
macy's (.com)

now, i must add a few pointers. firstly, the actual stores usually have bigger discounts than the online spots. nextly, don't forget the coolest retail trick-thing ever: ask if they have stuff in the back, and mean it! gymboree is classic for "hiding" items behind the desk and in the back store room. i have purchased skads of items from them for under $5! just ask, and usually they have it. numero 3, price adjustments are my secret love! make them yours too! most stores i have posted, have a 1 week price adjustment policy, and a few blessed ones (gap, target) have 2 weeks. if you order online, you can call in your price adjustment. that's right, shop in your skivies, then on your final day of price adjusting allowedness, ring up customer service and ask them to check if you have any items that have gone down, they will then credit you inthe same way you made your purchase, maybe the easiest way to save a few bucks. and my final tip: register at each of these stores online to receive coupons in the mail and in your email box. just in the past 15 days i have received 10-20% off coupons for old navy, gap, crazy 8, and target. of course, if you feel the need to sign-up for one of the store credit cards there are many added bonuses, but beware because those can lead you down the primrose path directly to the blackhole of debt. sometimes, the "extra" bonus is quite honestly not worth it. go to it, ladies!
