If you've read my earlier posts, you probably know by now that I love to shop. I mean, this is House of Rehab! However, what I love even more, is finding a great deal. It's kinda like they just fall into my lap. Or, maybe I just shop all the time, but that's neither here no there. Anyway,I decided to share some of my keys to shopping success! Take notes and you'll be on your way to budgetnista status in no time.
I've said it before:look for sales when seasons change. Truth is, you can find great deals pretty much everyday. You just have to look for them (read shop all the time- but that's why you're a fashion addict right?). If you're in the store often enough, you'll become familiar with their sale system: how often things go on sale or clearance (yes there's a difference), how long the sale lasts, and if it's even a good deal. If this isn't your super power, no worries; I'm here to help!
When it comes to getting great stuff for an even greater discount; it's simple: you have to look for them! They aren't always going to be in your face. Usually the clearance section is hiding in the back of the store or department.
Dorothy followed the yellow brick road, you follow the red clearance signs!
Don't dismiss the discount store!
Stores like Tj Maxx or Nordstrom Rack can be sort of a scavenger hunt. However, if you look hard enough, you'll find some great treasures. The key is to go early during the stores first hours of being open. The store should still be somewhat in tact and easier to shop. Don't forget to check the clearance aisle even at a discount store. For instance, I found this Moschino hand bag for $170 on clearance, plus an additional 25% off! Sale on top of sale.
Outlet stores can be your best friend.
Well, there you have it. Makes you want to shop right? LOL. Hopefully, I've convinced you to join the dark side and start shopping those sales. Thank Me Later-XoXo Ashlee
