We all love to save a few bucks, especially around the holidays. With so many affordable, yet trendy options out there, even stars like Reese Witherspoon (in Simply Vera Vera Wang for Kohl’s), Jessica Biel and Kate Bosworth are getting in on the deals. But shopping for bargains in stores during this season can be a huge pain — between fighting for rack space and standing in line for dressing rooms, we start to wonder if it’s worth it. Want to know our secret? Instead of trolling our fave websites every day to see what’s discounted, we’ve signed up for their email alerts and newsletters to keep tabs on upcoming sales. Just remember to create a special email account so you don’t clog up your personal or work inbox. We did and it’s a lifesaver. Now we want to know what you do! Tell us: What’s your secret for finding good bargains?
