Red Tag Crazy will be the death of us



Redtagcrazy Welcome to your new addiction -- instant bargain shopping.

My good friend Sara, a ferocious female who knows an entire dance routine to "This Is How We Do It" and once carried me piggy back style because my shoes hurt, alerted me to Red Tag Crazy this morning.  Here's the pitch:

"We sell one hot item from one sought-after label at a time, casual and designer, at deep discounts of 50-80%. Quantities are limited, time is limited, and our attention span is limited - so stay awake. We'll work hard to find the brands you want, as long as you work hard to continue buying them. This is retail therapy at its finest, and you'll never hit the mall again."

I don't know about that, but I'll be checking in often. This morning's deal was this sexy little ruched top from Zlush marked down 76 percent to $9.77. Tomorrow, Red Tag Crazy is having a major denim push from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Quick hit shopping is really taking off. My boyfriend is constantly on Woot!, a similar site for gadgets. The hunt is fun, but tough. You have to make decisions in a snap when presented with deals. If you choose wrong, there's no going back. Take for instance last Saturday when I came home from a multimedia journalism seminar announcing how much I wanted a Flip video camera. His teeth clenched and he started to twitch. Two days earlier, he ALMOST bought one at a huge discount on Woot! SUCK!

This ten dollar shirt? I probably won't regret passing it up. But the nice thing is, my wallet won't regret me picking it up, either. Ah, discounts. Come to mama.
