We all get carried away during sale time with amazing price reductions and bargains galore.
I think we have all made mistakes in the past buying an item because it is on ‘sale’ but it still remains unworn in our wardrobe.
Here are my top 3 tips on how to shop smart during the sales:
- Before you hit the stores review your wardrobe. Make a list of Items you need to replace and new items that would make your wardrobe functional. If you have specific items you are shopping for you won’t blow your budget with impulse purchases.
- It is a great time to buy quality items at a fraction of the price. Look for classic workhorse items, pieces that you will wear all the time. For example: A blazer jacket in a neutral colour, classic winter coat or staple leather boots.
- Only buy clothes that fit there and then. Avoid purchasing items that require alterations or are ill fitting just because the price is right. Remember, it is not a bargain unless you will wear it and you need it. When you are purchasing an item make sure it will match with 3 or 4 other existing items.
Don’t forget to dress comfortably, wear clothing that is easy to change in and out of. A pair of slip on shoes and a comfortable dress is the perfect sale shopping outfit.
