It seems funny but it actually happens. If you are guilty of these thoughts too, i guess it’s time to go with these few tips. Trust me when i say they will definitely help.
Have a solid but flexible plan.
As boring as it sounds, having a workable plan can keep you from buying stuff you don’t need or even like.
Discounts can sometimes be tricky
Taken in by a terrific discount? Don’t be, unless you actually are going to use or wear the item in question.
Try things on for size
Whether it’s shoes or clothes, try them on. It may be time-consuming but this will eliminate the hassle of returns and refunds.
Have a good budget and stick to it.
It’s tempting to throw caution to the winds and spend a few bundles but we know how it ends right? Stick to your budget please.
Shop when you’re clear headed
Please, please, please, most bad decisions during shopping are made when you are feeling sad , anxious or annoyed. So try not to shop when you are in a bad mood.
Shop around as much as possible
Whether online or not, compare items, prices and deals before making a purchase.
