Only buy things you know you can return. I pretty much never take any risk and only buy things that I can return. Occasionally I'll take a chance, and almost always it comes back and bites me and I have to eat the cost of that thing, darn it. I'm talking to you clothing. I'll buy other things from there but not clothes, it's so hit or miss. Although one thing I scored on was this skirt...that was pretty awesome. Unfortunately she doesn't sell this skirt any more. But this one is pretty close.

Always look for a coupon code. Retail Me Not usually has some good ones. I also use Wikibuy. I've had good luck with that. I wrote all about it here.


Always price compare. Unless you think it's a screaming deal, always check to see if you can find it cheaper somewhere else. I just highlight the name of what it is I want, enter that into Google to see if it pops up anywhere else. The desk I got, I found $50 cheaper somewhere else, all by Googling the name. Currently it seems to be $150 everywhere, so if you need a white desk, get this's an awesome cheap white desk. It also comes in black and espresso, with free 2 day shipping, can't beat that!

If you can, buy things that you can return to the store. I know this is a weird one, but I really prefer to buy things that I can return to a store, like Nordstrom, Target, DSW, Loft, etc. Those are my go to places, leaving it up to the postman to get my stuff back to the retailer, makes me super nervous. So I will almost always buy from them. The few things I've returned to Amazon, the seller either has to decide if they want to take back your product, like what? Take that back yo!

Stalking a product like no other. Find something you really like, but it's slightly out of your price range? You better believe I stalk the heck out of that thing. Sometimes you can figure out when their sales start, but mostly I don't try that I just check back weekly if something is new, and then every few days after that. I figure if it's meant to be, I will get it for a cheaper price. I'm always so excited to find something on sale. My most recent stalk purchase, were these shoes. Currently they are $5 cheaper than what I got them for...hmmm...what other colors do I NEED? All of them? Okay not really, probably the red and maybe the navy? Or Pale Gold? That one is pretty, decision, decisions.
