For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved a good deal–okay, I take that back–a REALLY good deal! Sometimes I just happen upon an awesome sale, but other times I watch items like a hawk to get them for the price I’m willing to pay. I set a price point in my head and stick to it! I apply this philosophy to everything, from beauty to baby, hair to home decor, and style to saving in general, and now I want to share my philosophy with you!
Being bright on a budget can work for anybody, regardless of what your budget is. It’s a way of life, and that’s what I’ll be sharing on this blog. To start off, I’ll show you how you can do a simple budget that won’t intimidate you. When you’re busy, you don’t have time to sit down and balance a checkbook everyday, or count every dime, so you need something that’s easy and workable.
I’ll share tips for how to get a great manicure without going to the salon and how to do your own flower arrangements (yes, even wedding flowers!).
There will be posts about how to pair cheaper but trendy accessories with basic outfits to transform your look–you can never go wrong with a white shirt and bright scarf, like my picture above. BTW, that scarf was $2 on clearance.
Babies are expensive, so I’ll share my favorite baby items that are affordable. I highly recommend the Snuza for any new moms out there, or if you have a baby shower to buy for. Amazon has a great discount on it right now!
And makeup. We’ll talk about what items you should splurge for at the beauty counter and which items you should save and buy at the drugstore/discount store. Below is a great deal that I got in the mail today! When I find deals like these, you can be sure that I’ll let you know ASAP because deals like these sell out fast.

drugstore mascara (L’Oreal Voluminous). I think it’s sold
