Who doesn’t love shopping?
If you are a “shop till I drop” kind of a person then this article is a must read for you. Read along to become a smart shopper!
Online shopping or e-commerce has revolutionised our lives to a great extent. You must definitely get your hands on the advantages it has to offer. Look for the products on at least 2-3 shopping sites before making a purchase.
Most of the shopping areas will be filled with people during weekends. Especially if you are going to street markets you will not be able to bargain in the rush. That is the reason you must try to allocate some time on weekdays for shopping.
Key to best Jewellery shopping
The most important tip here is to look for discounts on wastage and making charges during festival seasons. Compare the making charges of various jewellery lines.
Finalise a budget
Try to make a note on your phone about the budget you can allot to a given shopping session. Set your priorities before going to the shop. Keep a balance in the amount you allot to all the categories in your list. Stay rigid with the budget you have allotted.
What’s in the trend
Most of us try to follow a certain celebrity or what is trending in the market. But we should also cross check if a certain style will suit a given occasion, our body type and also our comfort level in carrying it. The main drawback of going by the latest trend is that it is very dynamic.
Is the “sale” worth it?
Most of us rush to a certain shop to grab the best from seasonal sales. These sales will save a certain sum to your pocket only when you shop carefully. We generally tend to buy more than our usual budget when we shop during a sale. Strictly beware of this.
Reviews and return policy
This tip is applicable only for online shopping. You will be able to find some realistic pictures and honest opinions from previous customers. Read well the exchange and return policy of the seller before purchasing anything. Every seller has their own exchange and return policy.
Never be lazy for a “trial”
You certainly know your size and preferences better than anyone else. But what easily slips our mind is that different brands follow different standardisation for sizes. This might create a big problem if you skip trials. Especially when you are buying clothes that can not be exchanged or returned.
Grocery shopping tip
Grocery shopping is inevitable for all of us. The best thing to do before going for grocery shopping is to check your pantry. Then make a list of everything you require. This will make your grocery shopping easy and enjoyable.
Pay in cash
This might seem very simple but it is equally effective. While you will have an eye on how much you are paying, you can also save on the credit card interests.
Hope these tips will improve your shopping experience to great extent. Until next time, happy shopping!
