faceless fashionista representing the everyday girl

Yup, I have hit an all time low.

I knew I had a problem when I had to beg my roomie to go shopping with me because I just HAD to spend $20 or else I would go crazy, but yesterday when I got a Julep Maven box in the mail and didn’t even know I ordered it, I knew I had a problem!

Now I like goodies in the mail, but like I said in a previous post, $20 for two nail polish and some extras is just a bit much to rationalize. While I’m airing out my dirty laundry, might as well admit to purchasing the US Glossybox, yet another monthly subcription beauty box, and making an impromptu Clarisonic ย  purchase……arghhh I am out of control.

BUT there is a silver lining here, I think. Being an avid online bargain shopper I have come across some fabulous websites that actually save me money, case in point ebates.com.

If it wasn’t for ebates, in the past two years I would have spent an excess of $150 on products I purchased online. WOWSER! So how does it work? You sign up for free, click on link to store you want to ย shop at and BAM get a certain percent back.

EXAMPLE: I went on ebates, saw drugstore.com was giving double back, so 12% in stead of 6%. Clicked on the link added what I wanted to my virtual shopping cart, added some coupan codes from retailmenot.com (another MUST for online shopping) and checked out. In the end, I ended up saving a whopping $52!!!!

So get to it my fellow shoppers, click onto ebates and shop away guilt free (or a little less guilty anyways) ย  Happy shopping ๐Ÿ™‚


Below is a referral link if ย u are interested in ebates, and NO I AM NOT being sponsored, just wanted to share the awesome savings ๐Ÿ™‚

      • LOL omg. terrible. does Sisley qualify? I am dying to try their stuff, but it’s just SO expensive.

      • Me too! I just looked it up and if u buy it from a high end department store like Saks, u can get up to 6% back. Match that with coupon codes from other sites for an additional 10% and u can save almost $30! Not bad…plus look for promotions and voila, more savings ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Shoppers Anon. here we come! ๐Ÿ™‚ Haha retailmenot.com is a great start and ebates also has codes. Other then that seriously just type in what coupon ur looking for on google and 9/10 times you will find something. On top of that, if you sign up for weekly emails from stores, they send promotional things out all the time ๐Ÿ™‚
