6 Tips To Look Great This Winter Without Splashing The Cash

We want to turn heads when we walk down the street, but we may not always have the cash. Unfortunately, looking our best is expensive. The best outfits, the best accessories, even the best makeup and lotions do not come cheap, which is a problem. Looking our best should not boil down to our budget, and thankfully it doesn’t have to anymore. As it turns out, we can look amazing without having to spend a fortune in the process. All you need to know are the hacks that can make it happen, and luckily they are listed below.

I hope you enjoy!

#1: Create A Budget We sometimes let our hearts rule our heads when we shop. Even though we know we cannot afford an item, we can persuade ourselves otherwise. At the end of the month, the credit card bill arrives and it is plainly obvious we were kidding ourselves! The problem is that we don’t have any hard data to prove that we cannot afford an item. We have a gut feeling, but that is not very scientific. With a budget in our hands, we can physically see that we don’t have the cash, or how much cash we have to spend. Budgets are a great way to keep finances up to date and stop those spontaneous shopping sprees.

#2: Shop Online, But Not Very Often The internet is a great place to find a bargain. The only thing with the Internet is that it is too good. Bargains and sales are everywhere due to the competition, so there is more chance that we will buckle. Although each item may be cheaper than their high street counterpart, together they are a lot more expensive. What makes it even worse is that we don’t shop with cash – we shop with plastic. When we don’t physically hand over the money, it makes buying an item a lot easier. As a result, we can go overboard and spend too much. If you do insist on shopping online, visit sites like Discountrue to find the best deals and bargains on the web.

#3: Go Out And Shop There are two main reasons why we should go out and shop on the high street. The first is that there are lots of bargains in-store, all we have to do is find them. The second is that we can pay with cash. When we pay with cash, we are a lot less flexible with our spending patterns. In fact, most of us hate to hand over cash because it psychologically scars us for life! And, if we needed any more persuading, shopping on the high street is a lot more physically demanding than shopping online. We spend more time surfing the web because we can do it remotely, which means there is more chance of us spending more money.

#4: Take A Friend With You If you are heading out to the high street, take extra precautions. Although having a budget and paying with cash are good strategies, they don’t always work. What we need, most of the time, is to hear the voice of reason. As we start to lose our heads, we need someone who we trust to bring us back down to Earth. A friend is someone that will always tell us the truth no matter what the situation. So, if we are starting to lose our cool, a friend can give us a slap in the face and pull us together again.

#5: Shop Vintage If you are not already aware, retro is coming back into fashion. Whereas we would once have been lambasted for wearing retro makes, nowadays we can wear them and look fashionable. Fashion isn’t exactly easy to understand, is it? But, it doesn’t have to be simple as long as we can take advantage of the trends. By shopping at vintage stores and also shopping for classic makes, we can save a fortune, plus we will still look the part. In fact, we will look even better than normal because everyone will think we are fashionistas for being up to date with the latest trends!

#6: Do A Review One question that we need to ask is, do we need to go shopping? For the most part, we love to shop, but that doesn’t mean that we need to shop. When we buy items for the sake of it, we are wasting money. All it takes is a thorough review of our closet to see whether we need to shop.

Looking our best doesn’t always have to an expensive venture.

Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison host the Febreze #12Stinks of Christmas Party, Monday, Nov. 30, 2015 in New York, where they unveiled ÒThe #12Stinks of ChristmasÓ video, a parody on the classic holiday tune. Febreze eliminates stinks in a merry way, keeping hosts guest-ready all season long. The video, starring the duo, is available now on the brandÕs YouTube channel. (Photo by Diane Bondareff/Invision for Febreze/AP Images) was invited to attend yesterday’s #12Stinks of Christmas Event, where Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison premiered their holiday music video.


The holidays stink. Don’t get us wrong, the holidays are a really wonderful time of year… family, friends, parties and gifts. But, while we see images of sugar plums and perfect holiday décor, the truth is the holidays are filled with a bevy of holiday stinks…


Febreze has reinvented the classic holiday tune, “The 12 Days of Christmas,” to showcase the stinks of the season and how to stay guest ready, with the debut of “The #12Stinks of Christmas” starring the hilarious duo, Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison. It can be one of the most odorous times of year but with a limited edition holiday product line, Febreze can help.
