D'Aira Evans tip: Wait for price drop

<b>Strategy: </b>"I'm not an online shopper. I need to touch it. I need to see it."<br>
<br>
<b>Tip:</b> "I'm a very picky shopper. I see something in a store and I give it two weeks. I want to make sure it's exactly what I want, to see if it goes on sale, comparing prices at other stores."<br>
<br>
<b>Best bargain ever? </b>"A pair of sterling silver <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PECLB003245" title="Marilyn Monroe" href="/topic/entertainment/marilyn-monroe-PECLB003245.topic">Marilyn Monroe</a> cuff links that I was going to turn into earrings. Full price they were $250. A month passes and I decided to pop back when <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="ORSTB000044" title="Nordstrom" href="/topic/services-shopping/clothing-accessories-shoes/nordstrom-ORSTB000044.topic">Nordstrom</a> had a super sale so they were half off and then the salesman recognized me and gave me an additional coupon so they were under $100. I call it 'retail fate.' It was just meant to happen. It was amazing ... like a rush!"
