There are good habits and then there are bad ones.
Are you a reckless shopper? Someone who always ends up penniless or worst, spending all the budget allotted for your monthly priorities or expenses or are you spending without thinking? Been there! Not happening again
Or are you one of those shopaholics who wanted to spend but doesn’t want to use all your savings? raise your hands, ya’ll
No matter where you belong between the two, we all want the same thing: To shop without breaking the bank.
Maybe you’re doing some of these already or maybe you’re in denial or maybe you wanted to know the things you need to keep in check when you’re about to shop or when you’re shopping. It’s hard at first but when you practice and get the hang of it, you’ll be surprised by the outcome!
1. You don’t have a/Not having a budget to begin withThis is very important and would make your shopping life easier. Allot a budget for shopping needs. That way, you wont use some of the budget allotted for important things. Also, it would lessen the guilt and regret after purchasing (which we all had to endure lol). Save the spend.
2. You’re not prepared or You don’t have a list of the things you need
Before going to the mall or bazaars. Make sure you have a list or make a mental note of the things you need to buy then if you still have extra moolah from your budget, then go buy the “wants”
3. You don’t have the time to/Not having the time to check out other stores
Have you ever find yourself visiting a boutique only to find a similar style to the one you purchased earlier and is cheaper? Yes. Scour the stores first then decide which you think is best for your budget.
4. You always fall into impulse buying
If you don’t have a list (just wanted to buy anything) but have a budget make sure you’re going to somehow use the item may it be a bag, or a dress, or any stuff. Don’t just for the sake of “buying”. Hard earned money is not something you spend on worthless or useless items. Shop wisely!
