Posted on February 20th, 2013 by Discount Debbie

Admit it… you love eBay, don’t you?

If you’re not already an eBay bargain hunter, let me tell you why you should be.

First, let me guess… you think eBay is just a junk yard-sale online where used, broken down, ugly things go to be sold to hoarders.

Now, let go of that sterotype for a minute and read this:

eBay Daily Deals: Each and every day, you will find a huge selection of highly discounted, top brands and products. They go fast – so act quickly!

There are TONS of brand new, discounted products available on eBay shipped right to your door and easier to find than hunting through a discount store clearance bin.

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!

Help! My Local Newspaper Doesn’t Do Coupons

Posted on January 4th, 2012 by Coupon Cathy

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.

Grocery Coupon Network

Did you know you can also buy inserts from Ebay? These are usually really great if there is an item you want to stock up on when there is an awesome sale going on. For example, here are 20 Old Spice Bodywash coupons for $2/1 from P&G.

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?


Buy the Look for Less! Jane by Design Style on a Budget

Posted on January 4th, 2012 by Discount Debbie

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!

This Calvin Klein dress is on clearance at BonTon.com for only $35.20. Alternatively, I found an Anne Klein Dress with all sizes in stock for $89.

In the interview scene, Gray puts on a blue printed shawl wrap.

While I did find a shawl that exemplifies Gray’s style, it’s $74.95 on ShoeBuy.com. That’s a splurge for a Thrifty Diva.

Personally, I’d go with this more bold, yet less expensive, shawl on Amazon.com for $15.99 + $4.99 shipping.

Still the international flair of Gray’s style, but at a reasonable price.

There you have it, get the look for less! Now that’s how a Thrifty Diva does style. 😉

And a big THANK YOU to everyone voting for us.

Thanks Style Savings Sarah for your online shopping skills!

Jane By Design Style Challenge #5

If you like what you see, please vote for us! Go to Jane by Design’s Facebook page and write on the wall “Thrifty Divas sent me here!”

Challenge #5 was to take a plain white dress shirt and style it for an office day look then dress it up as cocktail party evening attire.

Day                                                                                  Night

Best of all, I assure you this is a thrifty solution!

Both scarves are from Kohl’s purchased on clearance. One was $3 and the other was $6.

All jewelry (necklace and 2 brooches) were purchased on eBay.com for uber cheap, each piece cost lost than $4 including shipping.

The sweater is from a local discount store similar to TJMaxx or Ross. It cost around $5.

Thrifty Style Tip

Invest in quality basics (such as a white dress shirt and simple black skirt) that fit exceptionally well, then use affordable and fun accessories to make it seem like you have many more outfits.

Thanks Style Savings Sarah!

Accessories, black skirt, and sweater from Style Savings Sarah’s personal wardrobe.
