Everyone knows that a girls biggest weakness is shopping! Looking thorough endless racks of clothes I always manage to find something I like and can never resist the urge to buy it! Unfortunately the only solution to not buy clothes you don’t need is to not go shopping, but if you are anything like me, that won’t work, I always end up in a mall somehow! Here are some tips on how to shop yet still save money.
A day or two before you go shopping always go online and check for coupons. You’re probably thinking, “I won’t find any coupons, if there are any sales I’ll find out at the store,” but you’d be surprised how many coupons I’ve found and how much money I’ve saved. There are usually coupons for The body shop and Claires so make sure to always search for coupons for those stores.
Stores are sneaky, they don’t place racks randomly, they place them strategically. Almost every store has a clearance rack, you just have to really look around for them. Usually the sale items are at the back of the store but sometimes stores strategically place clearance racks where most people won’t look. For example, Urban Behavior puts the women’s clearance stuff on the second floor where mens clothes and home decoration are. If you are unsure of where the sale racks are in a store, don’t be shy to ask someone who works there.
If you know what you are buying and from which store you want it, look online before you go to the store and remember the price. Many times, prices vary from a store and the website of a store or there is a online only promotion going on. This way you can get the same item you were planning to buy for less.
Hopefully this post will help some of you save money. More tips on this and part 2 will be coming out soon, so keep watch!
