Always make a list before you go for shopping so that you can stick to your plan. Having no list can indulge you in random shopping and then you will end up spending more money than you actually planned. So, if anything excites and you want to buy it, never break the rule that says that you are not allowed to buy anything that is not there in the list. Use this tip and then you will be amazed that how you could manage to save money when you’re shopping.
Prefer buying basic clothes
If you’re going for shopping to buy clothes, always prefer buying basic ones. For example, you can buy plain color pants like black or blue that can go with different colors of tops. This way you can spend more on other things. If you want to go for funky trendy clothes, they would cost you more and they cannot be worn with different clothes. Especially if you’re buying workout bottoms, always go for black, greys and blues so that you can wear them with random t-shirts. Although, woman can go for funky leggings and bottoms but then buy plain tops with them.
Try to shop on sale days
The best time to shop is when there is sale. This is the best way to manage your shopping budget and it allows you to buy more things in less budget. Always look for those shopping markets that offer more discount. Now due to high level of competition, many brands prefer attracting customers through discounts so take advantage of this opportunity. This is true that items may be limited in sale, but still you can manage to choose from those limited items if they are on half price. There is no harm in wearing the clothes from last year’s collection. Common on, you’re smart, you can carry it off well and nobody is going to know that it has been taken from sale.
Bring limited cash
Another rule you have to set for shopping is to shop on cash rather than using your bank cards. Credit and debit cards are a trap that you can get into especially when you look at a lovely dress that can make you look hot in your friend’s birthday party. Always take cash with you so that you know your budget well and don’t get distracted from your goal of saving money while shopping.
Do market research
Never buy from the first shop that comes in front of you. Always, look for more options by visiting other shops as well. Remember, you are not going to buy things everyday so you should be smart enough to make a right choice so you don’t regret later. It is even better if you do a little market research on internet and keep in mind that which brands are good for you. Then go and look for other similar options in the market and take a final decision smartly. If you’re lucky to have a friend with good shopping sense, always time him/her with you so that he can guide you what to choose.
