Shopping Tip: How to Avoid the Impulse Buy

Posted 3 years ago by

First, have a reason for shopping. If you’re in desperate need of pants, only go shopping for pants — as in only bring pants into the dressing room. Prevent your urge to buy everything in the store by just bringing in what you need. In the past, I’d bring everything under the sun into the dressing room with the mindset: “I’m only here to buy a pair of pants, but I just want to try these other things on to see if they’ll look good with these pants. I won’t buy them.” In the end, I do. Unfortunately, a good percentage of impulse buys are never even worn. Once you buy enough of what you actually need (and if feel your wallet can handle it), then buy those little extras!

Second, only buy clothes that go with what you already own. If you find something you like but don’t have anything to wear it with (meaning you’ll have to buy another item)… Don’t buy it!

When is the Best Time to Buy a Bathing Suit?

Posted 3 years ago by

Right now! Fall is just a few short weeks away, meaning swimming season is just about over. Stores are trying to get rid of anything summer related to make room for fall attire. You can now buy a quality $80 dollar suit for next to nothing (50% to 75% off). The better the quality, the longer it’ll last. Check out Kohl’s, Macy’s, Everything But Water and Nordstrom’s.

If you’re to impatient and can’t wait the 8 months to wear your suit, try going to H&M, Target or Old Navy when it starts getting warm again. They have the cutest suits for a great price, but they’ll only last you one season.

When is the Best Time to Buy Boots?

Posted 3 years ago by

Right now! If you went out to buy boots this time of year you will find them all on sale. Most people buy boots September thru February. That is when the weather allows them the most, but at full price. As the weather gets warmer and warmer the more people shift their purchases to bathing suits, shorts, sandals, and tanks. You’ll be able to buy good quality boots originally $40-$200 at 50% to 75% off. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to wear them for about 3 to 6 months, but the deal you’ll get will make it worth it. Try Aldo, Macy’s, Nordstrom, and Baker’s for the best sales. The same goes for coats!
