Start shopping well! Although the recession ended a year ago, some people are still a little squeamish about spending. Get over it. Spend, splurge and be happy. Buy all the "wants" not "needs" your heart desires. Try this; automatically debit as little as $20 from each pay check and watch it add up. If you get "extra" monies, spend $20 of it and hide the rest. Out of sight, out of mind right? Start your New Year right and shop guilt free!


Francesca's has an incredible selection of jewelry and accessories starting as low as $10. They offer amazing handbags, dresses, blouses, skirts and novelty items. At Francesca's, selection and quality go hand-in-hand. Located in the Chandler Casa Paloma Shopping, next to Bath & Body Works. www.francescascollections.com.


While Paris Paris is good at keeping up with the latest trends; they also have guilt-free prices. Close in proximity but far from the norm, Paris Paris has jackets, skirts, dresses, tanks, sweat suits and all the bling you could stand. Located in the Chandler Casa Paloma Shopping, next to The Gap. www.parisparisaz.com.


The Purple Skirt's new location is bigger and prettier than ever. The rich dark woods and generous-sized dressing rooms are only part of its new charm. Purple Skirts' prices range from dresses over $200 to a sales rack offering up to 50 percent off. Located in the South Mountain Plaza in Ahwatukee, more commonly known as the Trader Joe's Shopping Center.
