I think it’s time to share my tips for a successful sale shopping, since lots of brands and stores are having promotions and sales these days.
1-Have a check list
I know that you’ve heard this thousand times and there is a reason for that; It works! I promise you this is the most effective way to shop. Check your wardrobe and have a list of all items you need to replace or add. And please do yourself a favor and stick to the list.
2- Know your colors
We all have favorite color or colors. You don’t need to be expert to know your color. All you need to do is open your closet, what is the most common colors? Now take a look at the pieces that you wear the most, what color are they? Now that you know your colors, it will be easier to shop, just ignore anything that is not in that colors because I promise, you won’t wear it.
3-Creat a mental picture
With every piece you need to be able to picture different outfits with at least two items that you’ve already owned. If you can’t, DON’T BUY IT. If you buy such a thing you will end up spending more money since you need to find new pieces that go with it. The very purpose of sale shopping is to spend less money. So be smart and take advantage of it.
4- Don’t let the price seduce you
We all have been there. I mean when you’ve bought something because it’s really cheap or comparing to original price it seemed to be cheap. Then it ended up in depth of your closet. After few moths (sometimes years ) you finally gave up and admitted that you never going to wear it so you had to let it go. Remember? So do yourself a favor and ignore any piece that does not fit in the last three category.
5- Check all departments
Yes that’s right. When you do sale shopping check men and kids departments too. Obviously you won’t be able to buy a party dress from a men section. But you can definitely shop for a pair of jeans at men section, they call it boyfriend jean after all! Or find accessories at kids’ section for really cheap price. I don’t know why but usually the price at those departments goes down faster than the women department. So make sure you’ve seen what they have to offer.
That’s it guys, these are my tips for you. What are your tips for sale shopping? Share some of your wisdom down in the comments, I would love to learn from you.
