Make a plan…and stick to it! Here’s some tips for smarter sales shopping…
- Decide which shops you’re visiting and try on their clothes beforehand so you know your sizes.
- Go early, get there when the shops open you’ll avoid the big lunchtime crowds and get the best bargains.
- Buy staples such as jackets and jeans, you’ll get so much more wear out of them the bargain will definitely be yours!
- Don’t panic buy! Snatch and grab tactics always end in wasted wardrobe tears.
- Stick to colours that you know work for you
- Buy COMPLETE outfits more so than just separate items OR at least ensure you’ve clothes and shoes to match at home.
- Think carefully about ‘in fashion’ items that are out of season – are they ‘basic’ enough to wear the next season? Will the trend last?
- Stock up on quality under garments – a boob-lifting bra will never go out of fashion!
- Go with just a few trusted friends NOT an army of fashion-hungry women – Shopping can be fun in groups but also a nightmare if you’re all eyeing off the same bargains. I’ve seen a friendship end over a pair of Prada pants!
- Don’t listen to pushy sales attendants – Not all are ruthless, commission-based vultures but some are – they’ll tell you anything to get a sale. A bargain is only a bargain only if you end up wearing it!
THINK it’s a bargain? Great! BUT think again with all the above tips in mind.
