Most people love to shop. Going to a shop with “SALE” written on the window feels like it’s Christmas again. The only danger is that usually we go to the shop to buy one or two specific items, but end up carrying half of the store out. Most of those clothes are used once for a special event and then never again. In addition, most of the stuff could have been purchased much cheaper somewhere else and therefore it’s twice as painful. So what can we do? Here are some ideas on how to shop for bargains and get the selling spree under control.
How to buy only the necessary
If you are planing to go to a store just to window-shop, leave your credit card at home. Take a little bit of cash with you for small purchases. Then you can buy something if you really want it and don’t spend a fortune on things you don’t need. Sometimes it’s also better to look something up in the store and check for cheaper versions on the internet. Now, in our modern days, it is easy to find the same stuff sold in stores much cheaper on the internet. Many online stores have also the option to use Pay Pal for an easy payment which is much safer than using your credit card details.
That doesn’t mean, though, that you can buy all the stuff you would get in the store online. Limit yourself to a few things per month. In some cases the online description is very imprecise, therefore it is always worth trying the clothes on in a shop. Many shops have also great offers like: buy one get one free or 2 for 30$ instead of 1 for 20$. Always look for the best deals before buying things and compare prizes.
