When I grow up, I want to be thrifty!

Me: Mom, when I grow up, I want to be thrifty!
Mom: ...Why don't you start now?
Me: That takes money.

I'm so in love with the entire thing!
So, yeah. I like to shop and it is even better when I can save money while shopping. While admiring some lovely things on Etsy.com I began to wonder if there are coupons for Etsy. I did some quick Googleing and discovered an amazing website called Heartsy. Heartsy.me is a deal a day website that only features Etsy sellers. The deal goes something like this...$7 for $28 on printing. So the deal is that you pay $7 (or whatever it is for that deal) and you get a $28 credit for the Etsy shop. If that isn't sweet enough, they also have a boutique! The boutique has some pretty triumphant items which are cheaper to get through Heartsy that through the Etsy seller. Well, if you sign up for Hearty with this link you get a $5 bonus that you can use towards any purchase you make. So that deal for $7, is now only $2! So awesome!! Anyway, I signed up a couple of weeks ago and I made a little purchase through the boutique! I got these supper cute earrings! They came all the way from Australia! And came in such lovely packaging! Inside the padded envelop was a green drawstring bag. Inside the bag was a lovely little wrapped package with the most adorable ribbon and accents. And inside this tiny parcel were these darling earrings! I am so thrilled!

Now! You also need to know that I did not actually pay any money for these earrings! I have been earning a little online currency by doing surveys online. Dollarsurveys.net gives you a dollar in your Paypal account for every survey you complete and you can do one every day! I earned $4 last week just from this website! So, I paid for the earrings with online earnings and had the discount that Heartsy had on the cute little things and on top of that I had the $5 Heartsy sign up bonus!  I am just saying that this is so cool! Not only is this a great way to buy things for yourself, but you can also buy things as gifts. And you do all this while supporting the handmade movement! Legit!

So, in conclusion...There is a way around needing money to be thrifty! You should definitely sign up for Heartsy!! And possibly Dollarsurveys.net. And you will be sooo happy!

UPDATE: Heartsy is no longer in existence. They got too big for their britches and collapsed. Sorry guyses!
