DISHing the Shopping Secrets!

We had such a fun time Tuesday on Great Day Houston!! That show has the most fun producers and of course...guests =)

This week we were giving away our shopping secrets...mainly e-bay and online sample sales. We love Giltgroupe.com!! When shopping E-Bay make sure you use reputable "stores"and sellers. Check out their former buyers comments, the buyer can't take off comments so if there are bad ones...they are REAL!

Economic Shopping is a MUST!

This recession is hurting all of us but there are two ways to fight back and survive!

1) Shop everyone on DISH, they are all local business and we can be recession proof is we keep our money local!

2) When it comes to clothing shopping, you can dress your family in brandname labels for seriously cheap...while also helping a good cause at the same time! There are thrift stores all over town that have clothing sections for sale. Dish won't lie, you have to hunt, but we found some amazing outfits...even one for DISH!!!

It's all a part of DISH'S Great Day Houston segment this Friday...Mission Impossible...can DISH dress a family of FOUR for $50 or less????

Make sure to watch Firday morning at 9 am to find out!
