Looks for Less

One thing I need to improve upon as a shopper is going out shopping with the intent to search for items on my wish list, rather than just heading to the mall and coming home with a bunch of random items. I need to be better about having a plan when I get there as in "I'm here to find the perfect cable knit sweater" instead of "oh that shirt is cute, I need that" (guilty). Being a smart shopper also means pricing the items on your wish list and checking out different options before making the purchase. Shopping around, looking at different brands and comparing prices can help prevent those spontaneous purchases, trust me your bank statement will thank you.
Lately, I've been doing more online shopping, which some would think was a bad thing but really it helps me price check the items I'm looking for and keeping an eye on sales, promo codes, free shipping weeks, and discounts. I'm sure I'm not the only one who receives countless emails from different stores advertising sales and even though those sales can be deadly, they can also alert you to when those items you've had your eye on, go on sale. 
I've been looking for a new navy cross body bag and a plaid blanket scarf for this fall season and started pricing them out to determine my budget. There are a variety of options to choose from at different price ranges, but it does show you can find great fashion at any price as long as you look around to see what different stores offer. So far I'm leaning towards the Brina Box scarf, but I still haven't made a decision on the cross body yet, also I love the C Wonder option.
