Obsessed with shopping? Looking for ways to save? Let me give you a few tips and tricks on how to spend less, but get more.

1. Live At The Thrift Store

Some people would say they would never be seen in a wretched, dreadful, loathsome place, but I am writing to tell you to get over it! This is where you are going to save the most money honey. You might be disgusted over the smell or the stains on the floor, but the things you find can be worth more than you think. You can find designer clothes, handbags, shoes(if your'e willing to wear used ones), and so much more. The only person holding you back is you!

2. Flea Markets

Flea Markets are the perfect place for getting knock-off attire, some people have a problem with that and its understandable, but you have to realize if you want to look fly and be on a budget, somethings got to give. Half of the time at Flea Markets they have some of the best vintage things that you would never find! The best thing to do is to find something that you know is worth a lot and sell it for more than you bought it for.

3. Garage Sales

At garage sales people can be the greediest you've ever seen, they will take something from their house and put it out there for $20 more than its worth. That is what a smart person would do. Garage sales are probably the easiest places to get cheated, most likely your merchandise will break later on, or not work to begin with. Or try and find the rich people garage sales, where you know the things you are buying are legit. You have to be smart at garage sales, don't be afraid to talk them down.

4. Coupons

Lastly coupons, you can never go wrong with them. Make them your friend. But once you get to the store don't be afraid to pull 'em out! Coupons are the best way to save! Either getting clothes or food, they can saved your life in both ways. Just pay attention to expiration dates and how many coupons you can use in the store, read the fine print.

There are always sales in a hurry as upgrading is the name of the game, so we can get working items at throwaway prices. We need to shed our inhibitions - we cannot have the egg and omelette - siva

Coupons are the best - you get a chance to buy something new at a discount
