What is 24/Savvy?

24/SAVVY is about living the smartest, most creative life possible with whatever we’ve got on hand.  It’s about doing fabulously more with what we have—even when it’s a little bit less than what we want. 24/Savvy is a new mindset; it's trading off, not down, it's turning the ordinary into something extraordinary, it's the art of living the good life for less, no matter what we’ve got in our bank account.

We've all hit the beauty counter without a plan, only to return with makeup that was unflattering and unwearable.  And we've certainly all splurged on clothes that never saw the light of day, some still even wearing their original tags.  24/Savvy is about navigating beauty and fashion trends like a pro, cutting through the clutter and recognizing smart buys when you see them and steering clear of impulse spends you know you’ll regret later.

24/Savvy isn't limited to how you look and what you wear though; it's a new way of seeing the world.  It's asking yourself if that thing you want to splurge on or that idea you saw in a magazine just happens to be something you can whip up yourself; it's wondering if there's another way you can use something before throwing it out; it's knowing that there is indeed a tastier and simpler way to make that meal.  It's believing that what you have to work with is sometimes better than good enough. It's Savvy Living.  Made Easy.
