The weekend has finally arrived! I am so happy, because I don’t know about you, but I need a break. And because its the weekend, I have a special round-up of news and sales to share with all my readers.First up, I will be appearing on Global TV’s 16:9 The Bigger Picture TV show on Sunday, March 8th. I’m really excited about this one, because it’s going to be a truly informative show. I am going to pass on my tips for shopping, plus you are going to get to see some of my shopping finds from my own closet. Joining the show will be a panel of shopping experts from consignment stores, shoe repair shops and the Ryerson School of Fashion to share their tips on how to remain fashionable in this jittery economy. As a special treat, you’ll have the opportunity to LIVE BLOG with me and the other show participants after the report airs. This is a great opportunity for us to chat real-time about where to shop, what to look for and where to score the best bargains.Check the Global TV’s 16:9 The Bigger Picture web page for details. If you live in Quebec, look for The Recessionista in the current issue of Clin d’Oeil magazine on newsstands now.

    I shared your Recessionista blog link with several women I know. Almost all love your blog and find it very interesting. I share this note with both you and the broader readership as an example that there are online opportunities available to follow one’s passions, to network, to discover new things and even to thrive in the midst of the Recession.
