Budget Shopper

By  | 


Having such a busy schedule and swamped with to do task, by the middle of the week I’m usually dreading the remaining days ‘til the weekend. This is why it is very common that I am always worked up and tense. This isn’t much of a secret as I am not one to hold back on my thoughts. For as long as I can remember I have always been like this, and from my personal experience what really worked for me is treating myself out and having some “ME” time. In my opinion, there’s nothing wrong with spending some hard earned cash on ourselves as we deserve it. We worked hard for it and we need to take care of ourselves. I can only imagine how I’d be like at work if I never succeeded in de-stressing myself.

From time to time, I get my hair done at local salons; get a hand and foot spa and a whole body massage. But! Nothing can ever top shopping on my list. Like any other typical woman, buying something nice like accessories, shoes, or trendy and fashionable clothes serves as our biggest weakness most especially if it’s on Sale! Yes, I love shopping but that doesn’t mean I don’t know how to budget or find a great coupon. I always make it to a point that I am not simply handing out the money I worked really hard for. With that being said, I always hunt for coupons that I can use> to cut off a bit from my expense. That’s all because I took a few minutes of my time to browse online and check out some codes. I know some women who would say what’s an extra $20 anyway? No need to waste time to go online for that… and I totally disagree with that statement. As a matter of fact, $20 added with a few more small bills will eventually get bigger. Honestly, if they can waste that $20, why not take the time to get a coupon and then donate that $20 to charity.

Shopping is indeed fun and despite that I love seeing some clothes in person and getting to try it on first before purchasing, the option of getting to shop online is much more appealing for me. Simply because I am not a big fan of traffic, rush hour, waiting in long lines and so much more to rant about. While on the internet I can browse comfortably and not have to worry about anything else. Anyway, no matter where I shop be it online or in stores I always make it to a point to find ways to save up and get a discount. Y’all should too!

My name is Angela Ricardo Bethea and I am the founder and editor behind ( and many other online publications ) ... I love the finer things in life, I'm quite a shop-a-holic and a certified jet-setter. So if I am not behind my laptop to blog, I'd probably be shopping if not traveling.
