Online Sample Sales

To be honest, I actually hate shopping. I am very picky and I hate spending money on things I'm not sure I will love. But there is good news for people like me! I wanted to share with you all my newest obsession: online sample sales.

These websites offer really nice things at deep discounts--but they only stock a limited supply of each item, and in some cases, the items are only available for a limited amount of time.

So far my husband and I have only bought sporting goods from Bantler, which I highly recommend. David is basically addicted to their website.

I have also been perusing Rue La La and Swirl by Daily Candy. Rue La La is invitation only, but my readers can click on the link above to activate an account.

Please note, I am not in any way associated with these websites :).

Do you have any online shopping recommendations?? Please do share!


  1. Not really online shopping per se, but I'm pretty much obsessed with Groupon. Of course, I have so many groupons now that I need to use.

    Also, those brooch bouquets have been popping up everywhere. They're adorable. But in my mind, I imagine tossing it (which I obviously wouldn't do) and completely lacerating a bridesmaid. My imagination is too vivid.

  2. I get that, I have a hard time shopping as well. I like do think for a long time before getting something, it makes the whole process more enjoyable on the end.

  3. online shopping is difficult for me because i'd much rather be able to try it on before i purchase, however when there's a deal it's hard for me to say no :)

    thanks for sharing!

  4. I am the same way about shopping! It makes it really difficult as I desperately need new shoes, but I can't decide on a pair to buy.

    These sites are great, I'll have to look through them a bit more.

  5. online sample sales! what a great idea! :)

  6. I love Rue La La, it makes me happy!
