Affordable Little Luxuries, How To Get the Best Deals on Just About Anything

While I realize we are not all living in the best of times financially, I think it’s extremely important to take time out for yourself! I don’t know if you are like me but I’m always trying to find a deal whether it’s on clothing, food or beauty products, mama wants a discount! Since I’m a spread the love kind of girl, I’m going to share some of my favorite sites where I get the most bang for my buck!

When it comes to clothing and shoes it can get quite expensive for your girl so I love getting daily e-mails from Gilt has a wide variety of designer apparel, jewelry and shoes.

You will be amazed at the bargains you can get on Gilt but you will need an invite so go here!

When I want to try a new restaurant or get a deal on washing my car, I check out Groupon! They always have a range of deals from massages to bikini waxes! I’m so addicted, I even downloaded their app to my phone and we won’t even talk about my daily e-mail reminders. I can’t help it!

And if that wasn’t cool enough they even have travel deals under Groupon Getaways

Perfect when you want to get away for a weekend or find something for the kids to do for the weekend. To get deals sent directly to your inbox go here!

This is just one of many ways to shop for deals; I do everything from clip coupons to shop sales, a sista gotta do what she gotta do. So whatever method you choose to use when it comes to shopping for life’s little luxuries the key thing to remember is to treat yourself, whether it’s a simple massage or manicure take time out for you!

So, tell me… How do you treat yourself?

Treating yourself to a tasty meal, trying new things, being fab on a budget are all ways that you can give back to yourself and minimize some of the stress that we’re sure to feel.
