We all love to save a few bucks, especially around the holidays. With so many affordable, yet trendy options out there, even stars like Reese Witherspoon (in Simply Vera Vera Wang for Kohl’s), Jessica Biel and Kate Bosworth are getting in on the deals. But shopping for bargains in stores during this season can be a huge pain — between fighting for rack space and standing in line for dressing rooms, we start to wonder if it’s worth it. Want to know our secret? Instead of trolling our fave websites every day to see what’s discounted, we’ve signed up for their email alerts and newsletters to keep tabs on upcoming sales. Just remember to create a special email account so you don’t clog up your personal or work inbox. We did and it’s a lifesaver. Now we want to know what you do! Tell us: What’s your secret for finding good bargains?

Resale stores like Buffalo Exchange here in Houston offer designer clothes for nearly 70-80% off.

Also, It’s great to compare in-store prices with Online. Especially sites like Urban Outfitters that have pieces of jewelry and basic tops on sale that aren’t available in store.

Lastly, sites like offer price matching on their shoes and apparel. If you see something for a better price, you call them and they’ll match it and give you 10% off of your order!

I only shop at Thrift Stores. I can spend $20.00 and have 5 to 6 different and great outfits. It’s the thrill of the hunt, plus it’s reuse and recycle. All sorts of great brands are to be found if you are willing to take the time to search. I went to London this year and spent my shopping money at a Salvation Army. It was great!
