Step 2: Engage in Cyber Sleuthing

How many times have you tried something on in a store that was way too expensive for your budget? And as sheer luck would have it, it looked amazing! Instead of going into debt, here's what Teri Gault, expert shopper and CEO of TheGroceryGame.com, does. "If I try something on that I like and it's too expensive, I'll write down all the pertinent details on the label, including the size, and I'll hit the web when I get home to see if I can find it for less," she says. Since online sales sometimes post before in-store markdowns, she usually scores. Bonus tip: Always do a Google search for promo or discount codes before you check out online; some sites even allow you to use more than one code.
