Are you a fashion lover on a budget? or just looking to save money?, Well here are some quick tips that I live by that might be of help to someone who might be on a budget or just looking to save money when shopping.
1.Buy what you really love
It is important to ask yourself these question ‘Do I really Love it?’ and ‘Will I wear it?’. Because when you absolutely love something, find the most flattering thing that’s on sale. If nothing is marked down from full price, make do with what you have until it does. Remember to always favor quality over quantity.
2. Shop out of season
I usually shop for winter clothes in summer and summer clothes in winter. This saves me lots of money as the clothes are mostly cheaper in the off seasons. So do not shy away from buying that cute coat in summer (it is probably on sale anyway) and wear it in colder months.
3. Wait for discounts or sales
Figure out the sales schedule of some of the stores you shop at (with stores like the fix Zambia, PEP and Mr Price I usually check on the stores websites or ask if and when they have clearance sales or discounts). Also go through the items on the sales racks and have patience, you never know what you will find. Especially when items are 50%- 75% off!.
4. Don’t be shy, Salaula (Thrift)
Don’t be afraid to visit salaula stands or thrift shops because this is probably where you will get the best deals as well as find some really great wardrobe pieces and you might even be able to negotiate too! How awesome is that!
5. Always shop smarter not harder
If your goal is to look fashionable but save money, then you must be a smart shopper. To be a smart shopper, one must be very patient, must make a plan, know what you need and buy within a reasonable price.
