This quick tip came from Di.
I would suggest that bargain babes look for outlets/freight sales in their area (if they have one). We have several in our area. Ex: I got a new pair of Libby Edelman ballet slippers (embossed w/ rubber soles) at a freight sale co for only $1.09 plus tax. It was marked down to 90% off the price of $11.99. I googled them, they were selling up to $49.99.
I’ve never heard of a freight sale, but I’m familiar with outlets. One way I like to shop (because I don’t really like to shop) is to go to an outlet mall and get enough clothes to last me a year or two. Haven’t done this in a while however, because I find it’s easy to get carried away.
If you are looking for an outlet mall near you, OutletBound is a cool site that lets you search for outlets by store, category or location. I used the map feature to find outlets near me. Make sure to sign up for the Outlets email or free VIP service a day or two before you shop. They’ll often send you a welcome booklet of coupons.
