Look 4 Less

 

Personally, I love flipping through magazine for inspiration, but to avoid the heavy price tag I try to find “look alikes” to recreate the look. When it comes to shopping, in general, you should always follow a few simple steps to catch the biggest savings.
Here are a few tips:
1. Stock up off-season
  • January – Winter clothing, sweaters, & coats; holiday apparel
  • April – Spring clothing, Easter dresses

2. Search for savings coupons online at sites like RetailMeNot, CouponCabin and CurrentCodes.com.
