Hmmm. Well ladies, there is another option.Why not use your cell phone to take a picture of what you like in that magazine or catalog?
I'm a lady on the go and you are to. I don't have time, nor does my purse have any room to carry ripped pages from magazines or even heavy magazines with tag flags coming out of them. Who wants to carry all of that from store to store? Let's put our cell phones to work!
It's so easy (and may I add polished) to take a pic of what you like and refer back to it a little later. Now if you collect editorials etc in a binder, this won't work for you. This is for the girl that sees something she likes and will buy it in the next couple of weeks.
Retail and Online ShoppingThe next time the sales lady asks..."Can I help you?" Tell her..."You surely can!" Show her pics of the items you've saved on your cell that you wish to purchase. A picture is worth a thousand words and she should be able to find the items right away (that's her job!). You'll be in and out of the store in no time, instead of looking for the items yourself. While she's pulling the items, you can look at sale items and other things in the store.
Beauty-holicsHow many times have you seen a particular blush, eyeshadow, or lipstick shade on a model in an advertisement and forgot to bring the page or lost the post it note you wrote it down on? Whip out your camera! Refer back to the pic you took. Again, it will help the sales lady find it for you or you can locate it yourself.
