Smart Shopping: Save While you Splurge

Planning a spree? Spend it all on you and don't get caught with these unfortunate charges…


Yes, we know that technically saving while you shop is an oxymoron… but lets not get bogged down on technicalities.

If you’re planning some shopping this weekend then the smarter you are with how you, spend means more of your budget goes to goodies for you, and less to incidentals that all too easily add up… 

Special Delivery… No Added Charge

We’ve longed learned the trick of shopping on UK websites for a fashion bargain. Even with the exchange rate it can be a super way to get your hands on a total steal… until you get landed with a seriously excessive delivery charge, that is. Those added euro can really take the gloss off of a new purchase – but don’t worry, there’s a way you can skip that sting.
