If it wasn’t for your alarm clock going off this morning, where would you be? Snug-as-a-bug in your bed (clinging to your homemade sweater pillow, no doubt). But you’d also be late for meetings, your trainer, a date, lunch, dinner, your family (you get the picture). These days it’s virtually impossible to get away from telling time but finding a clock (alarm or otherwise) that’s chic and cheap remains an elusive task. That’s why we’ve searched the Net and found three clocks that will keep you on time and in style without busting your budget. So what are you waiting for?  Time’s a-wasting!
