Save Money While You #Slay

There’s nothing better than finding a good deal while you’re out and about. That feeling is even better when you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get the deal. I am a huge advocate for the sale and clearance section because it hasn’t let me down, yet. Because I love to spend and save money, I thought I would share a few tips on keeping more money in your wallet!

  • Sign up for sales newsletters and text messages
    • You’ll be one of the first to know about upcoming promotions and will also recieve coupons directly to your phone.
  • Use discount codes
    • Discount codes while shopping online are a God send. You can get free shipping, dollars off, cashback AND free items with a purchase. Utilize websites like eBates, RetailMeNot and Krazycouponlady to practice the art of saving money. You can download the apps and use them in-store as well!
  • Find a good dupe
    •  For makeup you can follow @dupethat and @allintheblush on Instagram for dupes on miscellaneous makeup items.
    • For designer fashion dupes you can look at Real vs.Steal on InTheirCloset or search for designer inspired items (Not a knockoff with the designer name but a similar style from another brand!).
  • Save for big ticket items
    • Saving seems like such a tedious task but it is so worth it in the end. Imagine holding that designer purse in your hands after months of saving, it feels like sweet victory!
  • Check the prices before you buy!
    • More often then not you can find the same item at a lower price from another retailer. This may seem like a lot of work but you can do this research from your phone or computer before you leave the house!
    • If you aren’t able to go to another retailer some places will do a price match and let you get the lower price. It doesn’t hurt to confirm before you try.

I hope that these money saving tips come in handy on your next shopping trip. Be like Ilana from Broad City and get those deals, deals, deals!
