Are you also a shopaholic like all of us? Do you believe shopping is your hobby, job and responsibility? Do you feel obliged to shop on a black Friday sale even though your wallet is empty? If the answer is yes then we predict that your New Year’s resolution was to spend less on shopping. Well, you have stumbled upon the right article as we discuss how you can shop on budget and save yourself as well as wallet.
- Study before you shop
Even though most of the shopaholics are well aware of the trendy fashion and styles, but they don’t know what they already own in their closet. Study your closet clearly and closely and see what you already own. You may not be a fan of blue colour but own several blues in your closet yet there isn’t even a single red. When next time you shop, make sure that you have a red in your cart and stay away from blues. Same goes for everything else. Stay away from boots if you already have a lot of them, stay away from stripes or any such thing which you own in excess so you can shop more.
- Sell and trade
Social media is a great power. Make sure that you are using this power in the right use. There could be several pieces in your wardrobe which are brand new and you have used them just once or twice. Try to sell these clothes on different second hand sites and facebook groups where you can get a pretty penny out of it. One smart tip: shoes and bags can earn you more than dresses and clothes. Donate the extra clothes and find yourself an emptier closet and a fuller wallet.
- Convince yourself
One thing which we hate most is having a time limit while binging on Netflix and a budget limit while doing online shopping yet these both things favour us more than anything. If you are about to checkout your cart and it is exceeding your budget then all you have to do is convince yourself. Convince yourself to starve for the next few days to make up for the extra cost or convince yourself to stop partying with your friends on the upcoming wedding occasion because you spent all your money of party on the extra expensive dress. Can you do that?
