Contrary to popular belief, I’m a discount shopper. And damn proud of it. When I spot a must-have designer item, I’ll longingly wait and wait and wait (And pray. And build a sparkly shrine for the Discount Deities) until said obsession goes on sale. Other tips? I’ll scour eBay and the outnet.com. I’ll ask my go-to sales peeps when the product will go on sale. When online shopping, I’ll Google discount codes and wait for special promos like a complete mental case. I’ll follow retail giants on Twitter and keep abreast with their sales news. I’ll even make the pilgrimage to Sawgrass Mills Mall for seriously discounted Frette linens and designer shoes from Off Fifth and Last Call Neiman Marcus. There’s a certain thrill in knowing I saved some bucks. I’m sure it’s the same sentiment those coupon queens (armed with three-ring binders) at the supermarket feel when they score leafy kale for $3 less. BINGO BITCHES. Can I get a “hallelujah?”
Of course, many items like classic handbags, jewelry and furniture never go on sale, which inevitably leaves me no recourse but to pay full price like a sucker. This is as painful as swallowing large shards of glass.
So in keeping with the gist of this saving-is-boss post, I’d like to offer you, my loyal readers, a discount code for the fun Lola James Jewelry necklaces I’m wearing in this exact post. Yep, enter WORDYGIRL50 online at lolajamesjewelry.com and score 50% off the locally loved label’s Moon Over Miami, Eye Love You or Sparkler necklaces in wood, bone and neon.
