Confessions of a Shopaholic

by: Ashley

Maybe the title is a little misleading - I am by no means a shopaholic.  But I have a confession! I LOVE deal sites.  And I'm not talking just about Groupon and Living Social.  So I thought I should share some of these sites with you (even though I'd rather keep all the good sales to myself!).

Rue La La: I consider this mostly a fashion site, although they have other categories (travel, living, local, etc).  I got a really nice skirt for work from here a few years ago.

Gilt: Categories include women, men, kids, home, taste, city and jetsetter.  Some of the jetsetter vacations look AH-MAZING! And they provide you advice about what to do.  In general, items on Gilt tend to me a little more expensive, but I did find a high quality peacoat for my honey last year.

Hautelook: Sales for women, beauty, home, kids, men and getaways. My favorite buy from here has to by my Crown Brush set of makeup brushes! Crown Brush is a regular on Hautelook every few months and totally worth every penny.

My Habit: I'm not totally sold on this one yet, but I figured I should throw it in.  Categories include women, men, children and home.

One Kings Lane: This site is for stuff for the home like furniture and decorations.  I haven't bought anything from here yet.  The furniture and vintage items can be on the high end (and way out of my budget).  But I love looking - and hopefully I'll snag a good deal one of these days.

The Foundary: This is another home site for furniture and decorations.  But this week they also have Reebok Fitness (exercise balls, DVDs, resistance bands).
