Whether you shop at Sephora or not, you can’t deny a good steal when you find one!  Getting new makeup is always fun, but getting the same makeup at a cheaper price?  Even better!  I recently discovered several different money hacks you can use for yourself at Sephora.  Here they are so you can get the best bang for your buck just like I do!

  • Follow Sephora on Facebook.  Chelsea Crockett - Sephora MakeupExclusively through their Facebook, Sephora offers you discounts and giveaways that a ton of people aren’t even aware of!
  • Take a few samples of products you’ve been dying to try.  Sephora allows you to take up to three samples home with you so you can test a product before spending a bunch of money on the real deal!  You can also get some free makeup :).
  • Join their rewards program.  This one may be obvious, but if you’re a frequent Sephora shopper, you can get so many awesome discounts and savings.  Why not right?
  • Free shipping is a big deal if you order online frequently.  You can sign up for the Sephora Flash Subscription and get free, 2-day shipping for the whole year.  And it’s only $10!
  • If you buy something that goes on sale a week later, you can take it into the store to get the price adjusted within two weeks of the purchase.  You might as well save every penny you can!

I hope you take advantage of these hacks and get some makeup to add to your collection! 🙂

Saving money can be one tough ordeal!  Going to the mall or out to dinner can be deadly for your bank account.  You plan on buying one shirt and end up with three!  Of course it’s easy to spend your money, but is it really worth it?  There are plenty of painless ways to save money that will make your wallet smile!

  • Do you like to work out?  Use it as a goal to save money!  Every time you complete a work out, put a dollar in a jar.  By the end of the year, you should have a couple hundred dollars saved up.
  • Skip the appetizer or dessert.  Some restaurants charge around $10 for one dish!  If you do this often, you’ll be saving up money in no time.
  • Bring a set amount of money with you wherever you go!  If you know you only want to spend $50, but know that you get tempted easily, only bring $50 to the mall with you!  This way, you won’t spend all your money in one day.
  • Think before you buy!  If you want something that is a little more expensive, don’t buy it right away!  Continue shopping or go home and buy it the next day if youChelsea Crockett- money really want it.  Impulse buys can drain the bank.
  • Borrowing is the way to go!  Instead of buying an outfit that you will wear one night, try borrowing an outfit from one of your friends.

Although saving money may be tough, it’ll be worth it in the end!  Happy saving!

Love,

Chelsea

Spending money is easy. Saving it? Not so much! Although spending money can be fun and exciting, the bills you receive are quite the opposite. If you are a high school or college student looking for a few ways to save your money, look no further! Here is a list of 5 ways to save money that every girl should know:

 1. Listen to songs you love on free apps and sites like Spotify, Pandora, or YouTube instead of downloading them on iTunes, which costs $.99 to $1.29 per song. iTunes also has a new feature called “iTunes Radio” that is similar to Pandora and Spotify.

2. Buy your feminine products like tampons, makeup removing wipes, bobby pins, hair bands, and toothpaste in bulk. Stuff is so much cheaper in bulk opposed to buying them individually at the drugstore. Look for them at places like Sam’s Club.

3. If you never use your gym membership, cancel it! Start to work out at home using YouTube fitness tutorials! There are TONS of tutorials like yoga and cardio routines!chelsea crockett save money

4. Every time you go shopping and see something you love but don’t really need, put it back on the rack and wait 24 hours. If you can’t stop thinking about it, it might be a sign that it is worth it. You’d be surprised how often we forget about items that we almost buy when we put a little distance between the item and us.

5. Are you a shopaholic but don’t have the funds to fuel your love of shopping? Get together with a few friends and have a clothing swap. Not only will you be cleaning out your closet, but you will also get some fresh new pieces to spice up your closet.

 

Try out these tips and see how much money you can save!

Hi Insiders,

            Now I know a lot of my followers aren’t in college, but for those who are or are starting, here’s a guide to budgeting during your college years.  It’s easy to spend your money quickly when you go out with friends or at school events, but trust me saving up will pay off in the long run!  Follow these quick tips and you’ll be on your way to stashing money in no time!Chelsea Crockett- saving money

  1. Try the “pay check” trick!  Whenever you get a pay check, put half of your earnings in your wallet and half in your savings account.  Do this right away!  That way, you can’t spend that money even if you wanted to!
  2. Check out your local businesses!  Most restaurants and shops around a college town offer student discounts.  If you feel like eating out or shopping, check out one of those places.  It’ll save you money and support local businesses.  It’s a win-win situation!  Plus, most of these places are in walking distance, so you don’t have to spend gas money!
  3. Say no to your credit card!  When you go out with friends, withdraw a specific amount of cash.  This will stop you from spending more than you want to.
  4. Be careful with the saying “I’ll pay you back!”  A lot of times, your friends will forget or take a long time to get the money to you.  Be careful!

Whether it’s for a Spring Break trip, Study Abroad, or for your future, saving money is a very important life lesson!

Enjoy college!

Hey Insiders,

            Do you ever wish you were a famous, rich celebrity with a never ending bank account?  Yeah, that’d be nice.  While it is impossible to come up with a million dollars, coming up with a good amount of pocket change isn’t too hard.  Whether it’s for a shopping spree, vacation, paying someone back, or just for an investment, I’ll tell you some fun and easy ways to start saving your money!Chelsea Crockett- save up money jar

            Do you love to work out?  Well, for every workout you do put a dollar (or more if you’d like) in a jar.  Soon enough, you’ll see your hard work paying off.  You’ll have a good chunk of money and see how many workouts you’ve done.  It’s a win-win situation!!  Another great way to get money fast is to sell your old clothes.  Look for a resell-it shop near your area, like Plato’s Closet, and bring your clothes you don’t like or clothes that don’t fit you anymore.  Why keep them when you could get money for them?!

            Of course, if you have a job, the easiest way to save money is to put a portion of each paycheck away and don’t spend it!  It’ll pay off in the end.  Get to saving everyone!

Good luck,

            Chels
