How to be Smarter:You really do get alerted to more sales and better deals when you are opt-ed into a company’s email list; however, it is a pain to always be getting emails if you are not in a buying mood (and sometimes seeing an email about a big sale from your favorite store can tempt you into buying something you don’t need). Create a new email address, and join the email lists of all the stores you usually frequent. When you are interested in buying something online, log-in to the dummy email account, see the most recent deals your favorite companies sent you, and purchase from the best one.
How to be Prettier: I like only wearing one shoe clip on an otherwise plan pair of flats for extra offbeat sparkle.
