Our Top 5 Rules for Shopping Sales

Our Top 5 Rules for Shopping Sales

With a new year comes sales!  Everywhere you look, something is on special.  Everyone likes a bargain, and it is this time of the year when sales are in full swing that we head out in search of a great deal. The question is, are you getting a bargain when you buy clothing that doesn't fit well and a pair of boots at seventy percent off but a size too big or a jumper that you will never wear because it doesn't match anything in your wardrobe. 

This isn't shopping; it is restocking!  

 

Before you hit the stores looking for bargains decide how much money you want to spend. A great sale has the potential to be a spending trap that will leave your pocketbook empty and your closet overstuffed with items that you will wish you had never bought.

Here are my five shopping rules that will assist you to come home with clothing items that are real bargains that will make you look and feel fabulous.

These items will work well in your working wardrobe, go with other things, suit your style and shape and will be a real bargain.

Rule # 1. Know exactly what you need. 

Take inventory of your clothing and write a list of items that will expand your wardrobe a red top that you can wear with five other things you already own.

Rule # 2. Buy only what you need. 

If you have five white t-shirts that are in excellent condition and the same cut you probably don't need another one.

Rule # 3. Stick to what works.

If you are working on a budget stay away from that plaid, flowery or embellished bag if most of your wardrobe is patterned and none of the colours in the bag matches the clothing you already have.  Even though the item is screaming for you to buy it, if it doesn't work with your wardrobe, walk away.

Rule #4. Don't be seduced by a low price.  

No matter how expensive it was if it doesn't fit don't buy it. You might find the best-looking designer jacket at a low, low price but if it is the wrong colour or it doesn't suit your body type, you will not likely wear it.

Rule #5.  Shop prepared. 

If you are shopping to find a top to match a particular pair of pants, wear the pants shopping. Or if you are buying a skirt, wear the shoes or take with you so you have a better idea of how the skirt will look like with what you are buying.
