Confessions of an (Online) Shopaholic

If you’re anything like me, you shop. A lot. Like, a lot a lot. But all of that shopping can be ever so taxing (pun intended), so why not shop smarter–not harder?

What’s that? You’ve never heard of Gilt? Well be prepared to be amazed. This invite-only flash sale site is home to some mighty fine high-end sales. Women, men, baby & kids, home, city, and travel; from ladylike dresses to Archipelago candles–if you want it, they’ve got it. Want an invite? Sign up for Gilt here.

While lines like Valentino and Givenchy usually have their sales on Gilt, Ted Baker London and BCBGMAXAZRIA are some of the regulars on Rue La La. Upcoming sales include Miu Miu, American Apparel, Diane von Furstenberg… and even Disney. Like Gilt, you need an invitation for Rue La La… but fret thee not because we’ve got you covered (just click here)!

Honorable mention: MyHabit–Amazon’s flash sale site. Though not as popular as Gilt or Rue La La, MyHabit has sales that are just as good… if not better! If you want to join, sign up through this link.

One Kings Lane. I could furnish my entire apartment off of this site. Perusing through their sales is often even better than flipping through a copy of Town & Country or Architectural Digest. Pretty, pretty things for houses big and small. Looking to decorate your apartment on the cheap? Sign up for One Kings Lane here.

Honorable mention: Joss & Main. Speaking of pretty things for houses big and small, check out this other flash sale site for home goodies. Joss & Main is like an online catalogue of awesome. If you’re looking for home goods or just want to peruse some pretty pictures of furniture, sign up for Joss & Main through this link.


Flash-sale shopping not your thing? Your brand isn’t up for sale anytime soon? Don’t you worry. Just look to Ebates. Here’s the rundown: you use their site to shop, you get cash back. Three percent back from Amazon and J.Crew, four percent from Neiman Marcus, five percent from C.Wonder… you can even get five percent back from 1800CONTACTS. Seriously, it’s unreal. Doesn’t that sound totally awesome? Sign up for Ebates here and get excited for your first big fat check!

Are you shopping? Stop what you’re doing. Immediately. Go to RetailMeNot and type in the store’s web address in the search bar and prepare to be amazed. You have no idea how much money you can save by just checking to see if there are any coupon codes in existence. No idea! Anything from free shipping to 30 percent off–totally worth the extra minute! Seriously. RetailMeNot. Check it.

Happy shopping!
