Princess for Less (2009)

This fact sheet offers tips for saving money on clothing, hair and beauty, and fitness.

The authors say that most women are interested in looking good, and whether that interest comes naturally or is socialized is a question for anthropologists and sociologists to debate. The question they deal with is how to achieve great looks for less.

They suggest shopping at thrift or consignment stores; checking the back of the closet for clothes that have been forgotten; researching cosmetics before purchasing to avoid costly mistakes; looking for a hair salon outside the trendy and expensive city centre; and weighing the costs versus benefits of a gym membership. While the document is aimed at women, the suggestions about fitness and shopping would be useful for many men.

The fact sheet is one of a series prepared by Money Mentors, a not-for-profit credit counselling and money management organization based in Alberta.
