Love to shop? Join the club; in 2011 we spent about $4.7 trillion
(yes, trillion!) in retail sales, according the U.S. Commerce
And who hasn't overspent at one time or another? With new
merchandise refreshed every season, every month–or, at discount
retailers like Target and T.J. Maxx, every week–department stores
can be a minefield if you go in uninformed. Especially since stores
are designed to make you drop as much cash as
Floor layouts, salespeople's strategies and even storewide sales
tap into our most basic consumer impulses.

The world is gaga over Lady Gaga. Her outfits so outrageous during an award show that the costume itself deserves an award. You can catch a small glimpse of her face through the crazy mix of carnival masks she wears. And her hair, it's so um…wait, has anyone seen her real hair? She wears wigs, lots of them.
Help her out, which wig do you think would look best on Lady Gaga from Vogue Wigs?

On December 15, 2009, Jill Chivers took on a challenge to avoid clothes shopping for one year. Like many of us, she makes less money than she did before the recession. Jill's spending habits, however, didn't change. She continued to indulge in buying, spending hundreds of dollars she didn't have on things she didn't need. So she challenged herself to break her shopping addiction. On December 15, 2010, Jill finished her hiatus. She's learned a lot in the last year and she's sharing her wisdom with the rest of us on her blog, My Year without Clothes Shopping.

Money Saving Tips
When I was little, Christmas was all about the toys and if Santa were to slip a new pair of pajamas or warm and fuzzy sweater into my pile of presents, I was less than thrilled.
These days, however, I'm all about clothes and so Santa (or anyone else) is welcome to add to my wardrobe. I'm sure there are more than a few clotheshorses out there that share my love of style and so this giveaway is especially for you!
