BUDGET, BUDGET, BUDGET! Oh yeah, did I tell you to set a budget?! Although people tend to stay away from making budgets because they can be tedious, or even remind you of how much money you really don't have to play with, this is very important. When you take the time out to set a limit on what you will spend for a look there is a higher chance of no buyer's remorse. You know like the glass slippers in a box in the closet that you spent a fortune on, but have yet to meet prince charming. When you set a budget everything about saving money seems charming!

Create an image in your head of the look you are trying to achieve before actually going shopping. This way you have something to base your hunt off of instead of going with nothing in mind. When you have not formed a creative image you will become frustrated while shopping, and can easily go over your set budget. A blank canvas is just that until the artist transfers the picture within their mind onto the blank space.

DIY is a popular call to action. You can also apply this attitude into creating a look. Do you already have a pair of shoes to go with the look you are imagining? What about those earrings you purchased over a month ago? Can you grab you some nail polish from the beauty supply store? When you take these things off of what you would need to include in your budget, you can direct the now excess funds into your priority purchases, or even better you pocket the excess and save money off of your own budget. Always look for small ways you can save big money!

Make a bee line to the clearance section! By heading to the clearance racks first, you are not tempted by the wonderful displays screaming "Buy Me!" at full price of course. Although it is an unattractive rack full of clutter, and sizes you haven't worn since never, this is a great way to find a diamond in the rough.

Don't be afraid to purchase the display, and ask for a discount when doing so. This often works when the retailer is down to the very last, or it is he only one left in your size. Don't be embarrassed, or shy to make a deal with the manager because ten times out of ten they will agree, and take a couple of dollars off. The customers near you would have wished they thought of the idea!

Only charge when it is desperately needed to do so. Other than urgency always use cash. As convenient as store cards, and credit cards may be it will give you the false impression of having more money than you really do for one look. If you can pay cash, and be done with it. If you absolutely need to charge something make sure you do a combination of paying for some items with cash, and charging the others. I would normally pay cash for the lower priced items, but you can do what best suits you as long as you are using a combination of the two. Use

Always familiarize yourself with the current promotional sales. You can do so online, or after your treasure hunt at the clearance rack. Find a reputable associate that seems very knowledgeable about the retailer's current offers. I have walked out of stores with multiple savings from clearance markdowns, sales promotions, and military discounts. Which leads me to my final tip.

You know the old saying "it's not what you know, it's who you know." Well the same applies to shopping when looking to save. Do you know someone with a military discount? A personal friend that receives an employee discount? Ask an associate who do they give discounts to because you or someone you know may be eligible. Only ask other's to use their discount on a situational basis. Maybe you just don't have enough to spend, or ironically you are going to be with that person anyways. Also, don't forget to cash in your reward points if your retailer as this system.
