Shhhh... it's a shopping secret!!

No... not hiding the receipts and the credit card bill. Not even stashing your sale booty in the car and bringing it in piece by piece.. I am talking about finding out about those super sample sales and other 'secret' sales events!

My friend Lesley put me onto a real winner the other day: Mums Grapevine. Mum's Grapevine ( will send you a weekly newsletter dedicated to giving mums in the know the inside scoop on where the best sales are for baby clothing, kids clothing and even maternity clothes.

If kids clothes aren't your thing but designer rags are for you, then log onto Missy Confidential. Missy is particularly good if you are interested in sample sales and other warehouse/outlet sales that are not advertised to the general public. Missy also lists all the current online sales in all shopping categories: Women's, men's, Kids and housewares.

Destination Style ( aims to bring designer clothes to all women at high street fashion prices. is the one stop online shop for all discounted cosmetics. Once you have shopped at strawberrynet once, you will boycott the department stores charging full retail price for your skincare, make up, cosmetics and perfumes !

Frockshop is another favourite for online bargain hunters. Frockshop stock discounted stock from designers such as Josh Goot, Juli Grbac, Nicola Finetti, Zimmerman and True Religion. Whilst not exactly 'bargain prices' for most folk, they do have a great range of local and overseas designers in the one place.

I will add my disclaimer now: I will not be held responsible for increased credit card bills, increased online shopping nor the complaints from the little dude driving the white van delivering packages to your home every day.

Happy Shopping!
