Savings on shopping

Girls love to shop, yes and that includes myself. I couldn't figure out why, but it is just innate that we can't resist anything that looks pretty on the shelves. On top of earning money and making money work for you, I realized that saving money is just as important. Here are some quick tips on how to save when shopping.

  1. Ask yourself if you really need that item before you buy on impulse. Think about what you already have and if they are functioning just as good.

  2. Can you foresee yourself using this item that you intend to buy frequently? If it is just another collection to your wardrobe of white elephants, then forget it.

  3. Maximize cards discount. Credit cards are hot on promotion these days and if you happened to have the right card for a discount on something you really wanted, that's good for you!

  4. Wait for the Sales. You may be able to get just what you wanted a few months ago at a fraction of the price now. Seasonal sales, Great Singapore Sales, End-year sales...

  5. Quality vs Price. Many a time I find myself buying something just because it looks nice or it's selling cheaply, which ended up not lasting very long on use. Good brands that not always equate to good quality but if the brand really deliver the quality it deserves, then part with that little extra cash for it.

  6. Compare prices. Common sense isn't it?

  7. Keep records of large purchases so you can keep track of your budget and spend within it.

  8. Make a note on things that you think you have wasted money on. And don't repeat it again.
That's 8 shop savvy tips for now. =)
