Buy smart, save on what you really want!

I have a few shopping rules. Here they are.

Rule #1
Don’t go shopping in a bad mood. You end up buying more than you planned as your thoughts will be preoccupied with the problem at hand.
Do go shopping to celebrate your accomplishments. You know better how to reward yourself.

Rule #2
Don’t set yourself daily spending limits. You’ll break them soon and your shopping trip turns into a guilt trip.
Do set yourself a reasonable monthly budget. You don’t want debts as you don’t want to feel “daily limits”

Rule #3
Don’t prepare yourself a fixed shopping list. It will take your precious time and remove the fun part from your shopping trip entirely.
Do know what you need to complete or extend a certain outfit, so you’ll have a starting point in your shopping.

Rule #4
Don’t buy stuff because it’s 70% off only because it’s 70% off. You have limited space in your closet, no matter the size of it.
Do have a reasonable expectations of the designer, style and your size. Clothing sizes S or M, 2, 4 or 6 will go fast, shoes sizes 7, 7.5, 8 and 8.5 will go even faster. If you want a new runway Diane Von Furstenberg dress, you’ll probably buy it for the full price or you miss it. If you want a new Juicy Couture top, you’d better wait till season sales.

Happy shopping!

ps. You can save big on this Vivienne Westwood Anglomania tunic dress. Accessories are built in already, just get your favorite flats (remember the mice ?) and you’re ready to go.
