Now is the ideal time to buy all your holiday and Christmas gifts online because you will have them at your door well before the holidays and avoid the last-minute rush. No matter who’s on your gifting list there will be the ideal gift for them online, and why wouldn’t you buy online when you can avoid the crowds, get them a unique gift/something they really want, do it without shoes on and stick to your budget by paying less at overseas retailers.

To help you find the best gifts for your loved ones, I’ve compiled the Early-Shoppers Holiday Gift Guide. All these items come from international retailers (who ship to Australia!) so you save a pretty penny against the Australian RRP, but to save even more you should consider getting a Cash Passport Prepaid MasterCard. The Cash Passport helps you keep your gifting budget under control by allowing you to lock in daily FX rates to make the most of your money. If you missed it last week, read why Cash Passport is one of my secret weapons for online shopping. Continue Reading

End of Year Sales Fashion Shopping Inspiration

The Boxing Day and End of Year sales are in full-swing. While this can be a fab time to pick up a great deal, it’s not such a money saver if you buy things you don’t need or really want. Having a shopping list of what to buy is one of my most valuable tips for being a savvy sale shopper. However, I’ll admit that sometimes there are things out there I didn’t know I needed. Sometimes, I need someone to introduce me to the things I didn’t know (or forgot) I needed. That’s what I’m offering you some end of year sales shopping inspiration by sharing some of the great goodies I picked up during the Cyber Week sales.

These are the beauty and fashion goodies I got during Black Friday, Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday.  Continue Reading
