I’ll admit, I’m a bit of an eBay addict. Especially when it comes to accessories, my go-to source for unique and beautiful pieces is eBay. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy the fashion and plenty of other items on eBay too, but with accessories you never have to worry about fit so you know you’re going to love it. Plus, I almost always find free shipping, so why not give myself a little affordable jewlery treat or take care of gift shopping without leaving my home. Win-win!
When I first got into couponing several years ago, I was quite distraught when I found out that my town newspaper didn’t do coupons. What were they thinking? I still don’t know! Regardless, I found ways to find coupons and still save money.
Are you in the same predicament? Don’t worry, there are tons of places for you to still get coupons.
First there are several places where you can print them online.
If your newspaper doesn’t carry coupons, try calling a neighboring city to see if they do and think about having that paper delivered. It’s definitely worth a try and wouldn’t cost much more than having your own local newspaper delivered.
Remember to also look for coupons in stores. Many manufactures put them on hangtags and blinkies.
Ask family to save and mail them to you. My mom and grandma both did this for me when I started couponing. Their locals papers had coupons and they would buy an extra one for me and ship them. How sweet of them!
Watch for your samples because there are coupons in there! Not only do you get free stuff, but there is almost always a coupon in there and they are usually high dollar ones!
Does your newspapers not have coupons? What do you do?
Jane By Design Style Challenge #7 – The Final Challenge!
This is your last chance to help Thrifty Divas win a mention on the show!!! Please be sure to go to Jane by Design’s Facebook page and write on their wall “Thrifty Divas sent me here!” That will count as your vote for us. 😀
Did you see the premiere of Jane by Design last night? If you missed it, you can watch it online for free at ABCFamily.com.
Speaking of the premiere, the Jane by Design Style Challenge #7 was to watch the premiere of the show, take careful notice of the fashion, pick a particular outfit from the show, and create a “How You Too Can Get the Look” blog post.
My inspiration: Andie MacDowell
Andie MacDowell plays Gray Chandler Murray, better known as Jane’s boss.
In the premiere episode, Gray interviewed Jane to fill the job as her assistant. While she scrutinized Jane’s look, I was too busy keeping my eye on Gray.
The first thing you notice is of course, the gold and turquoise statement necklace.
I found this similar necklace on eBay, my favorite source for unique and affordable accessories. This necklace is listed “Buy It Now” at $19.99 with free shipping.
Next up, the little black dress. Keeping in the rigors of fashion I shopped name brand (though no doubt you can find an even cheaper knock-off 😉 ) yet miraculously found an affordable Calvin Klein!
