IN THEIR OWN WORDS:
"As a shopping editor, I never encourage people to buy just because something is “on sale” or trendy. If you have to spend your hard-earned money, it should always be on things that will actually last and be worth it. And, if there’s a way to get that coveted item without paying full price, I want to help you find it. No one should spend more than they need to or sacrifice what they want for a “budget” option that’s not going to work as well or last as long.
When I’m not monitoring the internet for deals worth sharing, I spend my time editing novels, crocheting and knitting, hiking with my family, cooking, and of course binge-watching TV."
