Groupon Coupons Saving Money - Something Gold, Something Blue Fashion Blog - Sharing my love of fashion can get expensive; today I'm sharing my experience with Groupon Coupons to help me save money on the items from my favorite retailers on my fashion wishlist

Shopping is, by far, one of my favorite hobbies. I love the anticipation of receiving a package in the mail and I get so excited – almost like a kid on Christmas morning when the package arrives (although I’m not sure my delivering men & women feel the same about my love for shopping – a big thank you to them for putting up with my shopping habit!). If I were to sum it up, I do about 80-90% of my shopping online. I am not sure if it is the convenience of ordering it and it arriving on my doorstep 5-7 days later or if it is because I am able to find a larger section of items online without scouring all over the store for the right size. Either way – I love to shop online (maybe a little too much).

When I received my first paycheck from my full-time gig, I may have a gone a bit crazy….like I need these jeans and this top, oh, and wouldn’t this pair of shoes be fabulous with this outfit crazy… I quickly learned that these spending habits were going to quickly put me in debt and I needed to budget to determine exactly how much I could afford without breaking the bank. Although I have tried to keep my spending habits within my budget, it can be difficult when you inevitably find so many pieces that have to be in your closet! hehe…

My solution: finding ways to save money on the items that I love the most!

Groupon Coupons is the perfect place to help me save money while still having “something to wear” (aka. something new to wear)! Groupon Coupons is a one-stop-shop to help me find some great deals that my favorite stores are offering, including: Lane Bryant, Birchbox, Target, Sephora, Nordstrom (Rack), Belk, Kohl’s, Ann Taylor, etc. (I could go on….but it would take me a while – you can check out the full list here)! By finding the best deals on my favorite items, I am able to stay within my budget and still get my hands on some of the latest trends!

Using Groupon Coupons, I was able to easily find a promo code to use at Lane Bryant to get this skirt almost half off. The process was extremely easy – I found the items that I wanted from Lane Bryant and added them to my cart, then I went to the Groupon Coupon website, searched for Lane Bryant and was able to view all of the promotions Lane Bryant was currently running. I found the promotion that would be the largest discount for my purchases and used the promo code provided. All in all, it took me about 2 minutes (most of it page loading time and calculating the best savings from the list of promotions) to save almost $30 dollars (definitely worth it in my book)!

When I was deciding what to wear with this skirt (and knew that I was going to be talking about saving money), I knew that I wanted to showcase one of my pillars when it comes to my personal style – you can mix higher end items with more economical pieces. I love luxury brands, but I can’t afford to have a closet full of all designer pieces, so I focus on purses and shoes to invest my money into because these items (especially purses) tend to last longer (of course, like everything, taking proper care of them helps with this tremendously). And with shoes, I have found that for comfort, investing in high-quality shoes has been a game changer. The items that I try to save my money on are trendy clothing that may not be “in style” next season.

I hope that y’all are having a fantastic week! If you have any tips/tricks for saving money on your favorite things, I would love hear about them in the comments!

      Thank you so much, Chelsea!! I definitely recommend using Groupon Coupons! And I guarantee that you can pull of the mixed prints outfit – I recommend starting with smaller prints (like small stripes) with a coordinating larger print!
