Finding a great pair of sunglasses that also look good on you is sometimes a tough task, especially if you’re looking for a designer name. The price tags associated with the top brand names will usually run you a couple hundred dollars (you’ll be looking at even more if you need prescription lenses). However there is an alternative out there for shoppers looking for brand name, great looking sunglasses, without the designer price.
It’s never too early to start thinking about winter clothes. The National Weather Service is predicting an above average winter for cold and wet weather. The West and Southeast will be wet and the Northern states, Rockies and Midwest will see above average snowfalls. With that in mind, it will behoove you to start getting your winter wardrobe down ASAP. Waiting for the leaves to turn and the first snow to fall will result in you paying a premium for the winter fashion you want.
If you’re a woman, the need for shopping is never enough. Though you may have way too many clothes that you actually need there is always this craving for more! Perhaps for a new skirt that’s in fashion or a designer wear that has caught your eye in a store display.
Although it is easier said than done to cut short your shopping spree it is not always possible. You will need to go out to attend social functions or parties in order to fulfill your social responsibility and be a part of the crowd. You can afford to stop shopping altogether and stay at home in order to save.

Apart from the fact that you need to control your shopping instinct for everyday wear, here are some frugal tips to help you save on designer wear meant for special occasions.

Especially when it came to stores like Victoria Secret and Juicy Couture, I always used coupons when I wanted to buy an expensive item.
Through the years I’ve been a lot better about using my coupons, but I think I could still be better. Here are a few tips that I have learned and I thought I would share them with you:
If there’s one thing that we can all agree on, I think it would be that saving money is nice. No one likes paying bills and watching their hard-earned money fly out the window, but unfortunately bills are a part of life. We can, however, make sure that we take every opportunity to save money. This summer, my husband and I are really working on “living below our means” so that we can save up extra money as we prepare to sell our house and move. It’s all about a little give and take and smart thinking.
