Buys CDs. I'm a music junkie, and I have a lot of music. However, I don't pay a lot for music. I often go to Target or Walmart, because their CDs are often cheaper then if you get them. Also Best Buy, and FYE tend to have great deals. My secret? Buy them used, because then you get the same amount of music, for a much lower price.
Outlets are the best for a Maxxnista. Do you have an outlet mall near your area? I'm lucky and I have one a half of an hour near me. They have great deals, such as a Coach wallet for $25 dollars. Yup you heard me. (If you want to see it, then check it out here) They often tend to have sales, in addition to percentage off coupons, and specials. One of the things that mine does is give you an extra fifty percent off your purchase, which is helpful when you want to get a really pretty purse. If you don't have an outlet near you, don't fret. I often head to TJ Maxx for things such as an American Eagle top, phone cases, and Juicy Bracelets. TJ Maxx on average is about forty percent less than the actual stores, so often I find Hollister/American Eagle T-Shirts for about $5-7.
Reward Cards are your bestie. My friends often make fun of me, because I have a CVS, Panera, American Eagle, and ShopRite card. (Amoungst others.) However, I have these cards for a reason. Since I shop there often, I get coupons simply because I have my card. Having these cards help you rack up points on stuff that you already get, and then eventually get coupons towards it. (Logic?) Sometimes, Panera since I have a MyPanera Card, would give me a dollar off my purchase of soup or salad. It's good because every dollar counts when you're trying to make ends meet. I highly recommend getting frequent shopping cards, because you save a lot of money doing so.
Own the whole student thing. One of the coolest things about being a student is that you can get discounts in all kinds of places. In Alex and Ani stores, you get ten percent off just by showing your student ID. At Apple, there's a thing called Education Pricing, where you show your ID, and you save about ten percent off of Macs, and other products. Some other places offer student pricing, so it's worth checking out.
Refurbished Saves Money, and the Planet. Refurbished stuff, such as iPods, and iPhones get a bad rep. I recently purchased a purple iPod nano, and I'm in love with it. I ended up paying 33% less because I got it refurbished instead of new. However, it works the same as new, because Apple makes sure that the product is well tested, and even gives you a new battery. If you're looking for a new iPod or iPad, I'd definitely check out apple's refurbished stock, because you can save up to 50%.
