With the end of the month making things a bit tight, I thought I would write about my favourite topic outside of plus size dresses - saving money! You can absolutely thank my dad for the fact I am someone that enjoys to penny pinch now and then - we both love to save money!
Shopping for Deals Online
One of the best things about shopping online is that I can shop around for a bargain with minimal effort. It's not like shopping on the high street where you have to force yourself to trapse from shop to shop - instead you just open up a new tab and search again for something better.
One thing I like a lot more since I moved back to a major city is the like of websites such as Groupon and Living Social. I have always liked these websites but I when I lived up North there was far less opportunity to be able to take advantage of this - Where as last weekend I booked a 4 hour tattoo session for less than £50 on Groupon - You just can't go wrong (hopefully!)
Bargain Hunting Doesn't Mean Cheap
Just because you're on the look out for a good deal, doesn't mean you have to browse the likes of Poundland and bargain basement websites. There are plenty of ways to shop for luxury and shop online, thanks to the internet. For example I was really told about a website called Xupes which will allow you to be a second hand Rolex at the fraction of the price of a new one.
Now don't get me wrong, I know we're not all rushing out to by a new Rolex every now and then, but it's nice to know you can take advantage of deals online even if you're spending out on something high quality.
I don't know about you but I always feel I can be a bit cheekier online. A group of friends and
I went out at the weekend - In advance I emailed the venue we planned to visit on the night out and told them we were coming in a big group and wanted a discount. In return we all managed to get free entry. Honestly, I probably wouldn't be brave enough to ask for something like this over the phone but a quick email takes no effort and makes it much easier to ask for something like this.
What bargains do you like to blag while you're shopping online?
