7 Shopping Tips

The end of the summer usually is very sad time for me. But it is also a sale time! So I know we all get crazy and sometimes we shop like it is the last time. During the sales it is time we can buy so many things  for half of the price.. so it is exciting time but also we usually  regret a lot of it too.

  1. Before you go shopping go through your wardrobe, your shoe collection and etc.
    Just see what you already have and which piece need to be replaced. You can even take some photos so you will have it with you. It will help you in those moments when you are looking for some piece to match another you already have and it is kind of difficult to imagine them together or to match the colours.
  2.  Make a list what exactly you are going for and you can set a budget
    If you need a lot of things it will be easier if you just write down what are you going to look for.
  3.  Think how much you want to spend on each of the pieces. Making a budget will stop you to go too crazy!
  4. Another tip to prevent over spending is “Pay cash!”. It has been proved if you pay by card you don’t really realise how much money you are spending. If you hold you money and you pay only cash you are going to spend way less.

  5. When you are already out going from store to another look for quality fabrics and right sizes. No matter is it on sale or not if the fabric is poor it will look cheap and it will not last long. And of course it has to suite your body so if it is too big or too small don’t buy it.
  6. Look for something which you can wear more than one season
    Sales are in the end of every season so I prefer to buy things I can wear next season so they can transition to either cooler to warmer weather. It is nice to buy trendy pieces but ask yourself if it is worth it to buy it and then wear it only 2-3 times.
  7. And last but not least: try to stick to the main list you have
    Meaning try to buy the pieces you needed on first place. If you like something just ask yourself  “Do I really need it?”, “How I am going to style it?” and “Where I am going to wear it?”

P.S: And don`t forget to have fun! Do you have another shopping tips?

Всички знаем, че понякога сме склонни да купуваме неща, които после никога не обличаме и съжаляваме, че сме купили. За това реших да споделя с вас моите 7 правила, щом се отнася до пазаруване:

  1. Преди да отидете на пазар, разгледайте какво имате в гардероба си. Обърнете внимание на цветовете, материите, моделите. Така ще избегнете купуването на същите артикули и ще можете да изберете такива, които ще могат да се комбинират добре с тези, които вече имате. Дори може да направите няколко снимки, които можете да разгледате отново, когато вече сте в магазина.
  2. Направете списък с нещата, от които се нуждаете. И се старайте да се придържате към него, за да избегнете покупка на ненужни дрехи, които няма да носите.
  3. Определете си бюджет, за да не харчите прекомерно.
  4. Друг трик, който ще ви помогне да не харчите много е да плащате винаги в кеш. Проучванията доказват, че когато плащаме с банкова карта, сме склонни да харчим доста повече.
  5. Инвестирайте в качествени материи и избирайте правилните размери.
  6. Не купувайте актуални за момента – модели и цветове, които няма да са на мода следващич сезон. Придържайте се към по-класически неща, в които си заслужава да инвестирате.
  7. Придържайте се към план-списъка си и не купувайте неща от които нямате нужда.

    P.S: А вие имате ли шопинг тайни?
