I'm sure that most of you are like me, and your favorite pastime is shopping. I love shopping more than any other hobby, always have, and probably always will. Even though I live on a budget, that doesn't stop me from finding some really great products--but at a really great price.
The more you get to know me, you find out that you can still have quality, name brand products but at a discounted price. When the economy started getting bad, and as my hubby is self-employeed in the construction/remodeling biz, it really changed how we lived. A LOT. As people that were accustomed to going shopping on a regular basis, going out to eat whenever we wanted, and just all that stuff that we all spend money, we had to really cut most of that out.
Actually, I'm kinda happy that we experienced that, because I have learned to be a "Frugalista" and really save a lot of money, but still get really nice stuff when we needed it. I now only buy certain products when they are on sale, have a coupon, or search around different stores to find the best prices. I've also started doing some shopping online because you can get some really, really nice stuff for a fraction of the normal price.
I recently found an online shop from one of my bloggy friends. Its called No More Rack. They offer daily deals that open at noon (EST) everyday, and have awesomely low prices. For example, on the day I found out about No More Rack, the daily deals that day was for authentic Coach bags for only $70!! It was later in the day when I got on the site, so of course, they were already sold out. What I did find that day was the high end makeup, Smashbox. It was a kit of several items worth over $85, and I only paid $15. What's really great is that shipping is only $2.
So far on the site, I've seen items such as jewelry, clothes, purses, makeup, toys, and games. And everything I've seen on there has been less than $20, with the exception of the Coach bags. Like today, they have some really pretty earrrings for only $3.
This is a site you have to join to be able to get in on the deals, but it is super easy and only takes a couple minutes. Trust me, it's well worth it! Click this link and join No More Rack and be watching your email for your daily deals!
