Sweet Spot #21: Champagne Taste on a Beer Budget
I, like most people, am guilty of what some call “champagne taste on a beer budget” or “eyes bigger than her stomach” or “expensive” or simply “living beyond her means”. It’s a heavy load to bear, especially without help from trust funds or doctor salaries. Lately, with the help of a growing number of discount shopping sites, made popular by Groupon, shopping has become much more accessible, affordable, easier and less stressful than outlets and Ross. No more buying generic or fake to get the deal; we want the real deal, the name brand! You may have gotten an invite from a savvy friend from one of these sites, or seen an ad for them on a fashion blog, but check out my more comprehensive list of shopping sites to have more fun than the proverbial coupon clipping you saw your mom do. My 80% off Ferragamo wallet just got fatter!
These sites are members-only sites that offer private, limited-time sale events on the world’s most notable brands. Each day, members receive an email invitation to the newest sale events or coupons on merchandise for men, women, kids, lifestyle items and more – some at prices up to 80% off retail. The sites I have listed are free to join and everyone is welcome.
