Hope you are having a great week, we are searching for the best deals to save you money, make your life easier and some cool ideas with "Power for your Pocketbook."  Ladies today we have some of the best tanning creams as we get ready for spring and summer, and I also have some cool ideas when it comes to shoe wear.   

First we heard about this from Peter Erdoes, who is a local attorney and a champion bike rider He works out at least five times a week to keep some variety, he often custom designs his shoes on the website The website allows you to build your shoe from the sole up. Peter says you can personalize your shoe, so if you have a college team you root for or if you just like to have more flash or your name or initials on the back of your running shoes you can do it! The custom shoes start around $85. My producers liked this website so much they have talked me into getting a pair of tennis shoes with the NEWS logo on them, I'll show them to you when they come in.

Speaking of Shoes, ladies here is a better way to buy running shoes. Bypass the women's section and head over to the kids shoes. They are considerably cheaper and we are told a youth size 6 fits like a woman's size 8, in some places you can save about $40.

Now that spring is here maybe you are wanting a summer look without having to be out in the sun, and if you are looking for self tanners one made right here in Oklahoma City may be worth a try.  Fake Bake is found at many local salons or you can go to the website

I found these deals on the site when it comes to self tanners, it rates the best ones as Neutrogena Instant Bronze, Environment Shield, Clinique Body Mist and Clairns and Ban De Soleil, these products will run you from about $9 to $25.

Don't forget if you run across a good deal or something interesting that can save some cash let me know so I can share those ideas with our viewers.
