Casually Red

May 5, 2015

Let me share a money saving secret with you guys. I used to get in trouble with shopping emails that different retailers sent to me. Even though I didn’t have any plans to shop, sometimes I just can’t resist emails advertising 40% off (such a sucker I know). You would think the simple thing to do is to just unsubscribe altogether. But that’s not quite the way to go, since I still want to save money whenever I do shop. So I employed this trick I learned from my sister: create a gmail filter so that all shopping related email skip your inbox and go straight to a shopping folder. I don’t even bother looking at that folder unless I have money to spend.

Well last week the stars were all aligned. I had money to burn AND when I looked at the folder I discovered that Madewell sent me a coupon code for 40% extra off of already on sale items. Score! Needless to say I shopped quite a bit and got, among other things, this lovely slub v-neck pocket tee and the mcarren tote (I just love carry all bags).

Outfit Combo: slub v-neck pocket tee from Madewell, jeans from ASOS, mccaren tote from Madewell, sunglasses from Proenza Schouler, heels from Stuart Weitzman.

    That’s a great tip! I’ve definitely done the same thing with shopping promo emails – they get me every time! Great outfit by the way!
