It's T-4 days til Christmas, guys! But if you've been procrastinating all month long and still haven't gotten your gifts yet, not to worry— like usual, Lady Gaga's got your back. The pop star took to Twitter this morning to give some last-minute shopping advice, saying "I'm telling you, if your [sic] in a christmas pinch go to vintage shops, most have archive jewelry from the fifties + affordable! great presents!" Come to think of it, that's actually an AWESOME idea. After all, this is the lady who has bragging rights to an absolutely killer archive of old-school treasures, including about a zillion Versace frocks. Not to mention, this is the recently-crowned Readers' Choice Best Dressed Star of 2012 we're talking about here...so when when Mother Monster gives advice, we're taking it!

She might be a superstar, but clearly Gaga hasn't lost her eye for a good deal. Earlier this morning she said "why do people look at me like I'm crazy when i use coupons at grocery or try bargaining at retail, IM FROM NEW YORK WHERE IS THE SALE RACK." #Preach. Oh, and just in case you're thinking of duping her into splurging on something overpriced? Don't bother. This morning a salesman tried to trick her into buying a $20,000 purse, but leave it to the singer to set the record straight. She tweeted about the ordeal, saying "so i set my kelly bag on the counter+said no THIS IS ICONIC it's 1/2 the cost vintage + the bag your [sic] trying to sell me was patterned off it."

And THIS, Gaga, is exactly why we love you.
