Financial Journalists Give Shopping Tips In Cosmo

jenna1.jpgThe October issue of Cosmopolitan features some financial tips on shopping during a recession featuring Fox Business‘s Jenna Lee (right), CNBC‘s Rebecca Jarvis, ABC NewsBianna Golodryga and finance journalist Farnoosh Torabi.

The tips from the pros are pretty standard, but here they are, in case you’re interested:

- Jarvis suggests making purchases on a credit card that earns cash back or perks and splurging on a suit while picking up tank tops at H&M or Old Navy and accessories from J. Crew.

- Torabi advises not to splurge on sunglasses and suggests using cash to buy things under $100.
