CINCINNATI, April 4, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ -- Each tax season leaves millions of Americans taking a long, hard look at their spending habits. The result is often painful choices between the things they enjoy and the things they can afford. Lifestyle expert and host of Fine Living TV Network’s “Pocket the Difference,” Alison Deyette, offers simple suggestions on how to live a gourmet lifestyle on an everyday budget.


“Even if Uncle Sam is reaching a little deeper into your pocket this tax season, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the best life has to offer every day,” said Deyette. “For example, as many of us, I find myself drinking more gourmet coffee than ever before. As I like to treat myself to gourmet coffee each morning, I choose to brew Folgers Gourmet Selections at home. It has a great aroma, tastes delicious, and is a remarkable value as compared to a bag of Starbucks.”

In preparation for the season, Deyette has made some simple suggestions for keeping the luxury in your life, regardless of your budget.

Lifestyle Expert Alison Deyette’s Tips on Affordable Luxury

1. Designers that were once only for the rich and famous are now
accessible to all. Before you head out to shop for your spring
wardrobe, don’t forget that fantastic high-end designers can now be
found at some of the top mass discount retailers. You can also surf
online retailers for deep discounts on designer wear with the click of
a mouse.

2. Don’t give up your morning gourmet coffee ritual. There are premium
coffees from trusted brands, like Folgers Gourmet Selections, that you
can brew at home for a fraction of the cost -- $2.50 less per bag than
Starbucks at-home blend on average. Not only is it a tremendous value,
but Folgers Gourmet Selections Morning Cafe was preferred over
Starbucks Breakfast Blend in a recent nationwide taste test. (2) It was
also awarded the distinguished Seal of Approval from the American
Culinary Federation for its quality taste.

3. Everyone deserves to be pampered. Treat yourself with weekly manicures
and relaxing massages, but don’t assume high-end salons are out of
reach. Many designate nights where you can get a luxurious treatment
from professionals-in-training for less than half of the regular price.

4. Book your dream vacation without breaking the bank. Consider a home
swap for your next vacation. Several web sites offer luxurious yet
affordable home vacation exchange programs. It’s a great way to save
on the cost of accommodations yet still enjoy your dream vacation in an
unforgettable setting.

5. Experience gourmet food without the gourmet price. Some discount home
furnishing retailers have sensational food sections in their stores
that offer gourmet goodies for your next party, the jam for your toast,
the spice for your meal or the ultimate gift basket without having to
visit a high-end gourmet shop. And you can save up to 60 percent.
