Who hasn’t had a bad shopping day? You go out with high expectations only to come home, look at your purchases and go ‘What was I thinking?!’ If you’ve been guilty too many times, it’s time to follow our instant advice!
Have a Solid but Flexible Plan
As boring as it sounds, having a workable plan can keep you from buying stuff you don’t need or even like.
Discounts can Sometimes be Tricky
Taken in by a terrific discount? Don’t be, unless you actually are going to use or wear the item in question.
Try Things on for Size
Whether it’s shoes or clothes, try them on. It may be time-consuming but this will eliminate the hassle of returns and refunds.
Have a Budget and Stick to it
It’s tempting to throw caution to the winds and spend a bundle but we know how it ends. Stick to your budget!
Shop When You’re Clear-headed
We mean it! Don’t shop when you’re feeling sad, anxious or annoyed. You’ll be prone to making bad decisions.
Shop Around as Much as Possible
Whether online or not, compare items, prices and deals before making a purchase.
