I don’t know if you have the same problem as me, but, when I go shopping in a mall I always buy things that weren’t planned and I forget to buy what I really needed! Stores have so many things and they do their best to make you spend your money: yes, I know, it’s marketing! The problem with it is that you spend your money on things that you don’t need and don’t wear. You only buy it because it was ON SALE.
That’s why I am going to give you some tips to enjoy these January Sales. I hope this will help you to buy what you really needed and not spending all of your money.
TIP n° 1: MAKE A TO BUY LIST
I am 100% sure that you heard about “TO DO LISTS”! A to buy list works the same way: you list everything you want to buy. You can separate this list in two: things you need and things you don’t need but you’d love to buy.
How to list the things you need?
– Start by looking at your closet: do you need to buy basics items? What about the items you always wear? Are they old and you need to buy new ones?
– Right down everything you need: you need to prioritize your list. Write first the items that are urgent.
How to list the things you’d love to buy but you don’t need?
– For this list, you need to prioritize items: what are the top 3 items that you really really want?
– Only buy them if you have enough budget: after buying the things you need from your first list, you can check out this list to buy your heart stroke items.
Tip n° 2: Have a budget in mind
It is important to fix a budget to not overspending during this time. The amount of this budget is up to you, but try to respect it to not spending too much money and to not buying things you don’t need.
TIP N° 3: shop online and in stores
If you want to make the best deals make sure to shop in stores but also online. Try to balance your shopping places and compare prices. Moreover, when an item that you like is not available in stores, maybe you can find it online.
TIP N° 4: BUY ONLY IF YOU REALLY LIKE IT
When you are choosing items to buy, make sure to look at each one. Do you really like it? Can you imagine a lot of different outfits with it? If the answer is yes, then buy it. But don’t buy things just because they are on sale.
Tip n° 5: Make sure you know the return policy
During this time, shopping malls are full so it is quite difficult to try your clothes. Make sure you are aware of the return policy of the shop. If you can return your product, then buy it and try it at home. If you don’t like it, you can return it to the shop. This option is interesting because you don’t waste your time in the queue.
Now, I am going to share with you some items that I like and could maybe help you to shop during these sales of January.
