Impulse shopping is a part of every woman’s life. It’s time to start saving and spending less on clothes.
We have all gone through impulse purchases, in which we get clothes that we do not need, will not serve us or even look like the one we have at home. We know that sometimes it is difficult to resist but we want to help you spend less on clothes.
Although there is no problem in buying some clothes from time to time, it is important that these purchases are made with conscience and not spend all the money or savings on clothing.
Of course, we all want to adhere to the main fashion trends and that we all like to be well dressed and well-groomed, but it is possible to do it without ever ending our budget.
Wondering how you can start spending less money on clothes? Follow our tips and start saving.
9 WAYS TO SPEND LESS ON CLOTHES, DISCOVER YOUR OWN STYLE
For starters, it is very important that you get to know your style, the trends that best suit you and even your body and work type. Then it is important to keep in mind that fashion trends are very fleeting. What is in vogue today, tomorrow is already last season.
More and more we have heard about the concept of fast fashion and so it is normal that many of us end up feeling influenced by this rhythm. Ideally, find out what your style is and keep it in mind when shopping. Avoid buying a part just because it’s a trend, but only if you really like it.
FIND OUT THE BEST TIMES TO GO SHOPPING
The best time to do your shopping is at the time of season change. It is time for balances and promotions and, moreover, the novelties in the stores are in a smaller variety. Buy the parts you are really missing and make the most of the discounts that brands make.
DO NOT BE SEDUCED BY PROMOTIONS
Although the best time to make good purchases is, in fact, in season, we should not be seduced by promotions. Many of us feel that we have to buy something during the balances, even if it is a piece that we are not even going to take off the label. Do not be seduced because, with or without promotion, you will have to spend money.
BUY ONLY WHAT YOU NEED
Before shopping, make a list of what you have in your closet and what you really need. So when it hits stores, it will be easier to resist the remaining pieces. Ask yourself, “Am I buying because I need or want to follow trends? “Do I have something like this or not?” And remember tip number 1!
BE ORIGINAL AND CREATIVE
When you know your style perfectly, it is very easy to innovate with the pieces you already have. You can customize an old denim windbreaker and make jeans a pair of shorts. Enjoy creating your own pieces, taking into account your taste and style. The idea is to use fashion and trends as inspiration, working out your looks and reinventing the pieces of clothing you have at home.
SEARCH AND COMPARE PRICES
If you need a specific piece – a dress for a wedding or shoes for that party, check out the options before making any purchases. With the brand’s online stores, it’s easier to do this. Visit the sites of the brands you like best and look for the parts you need. If you have small children, we suggest that you check out Vertbaudet’s website. Then compare prices and search for deals.
ANALYZE YOUR BUDGET
Before you go to the mall spend your savings, analyze your accounts and find out how much you can actually spend. If you go to the store with a set budget, it will be much easier to save. You can even create an excel or any other way to go and mark the expenses that you will have over the course of the month.
DO YOUR SHOPPING IN CASH
When shopping, choose to take with you the exact amount you want to spend instead of using the card. That way it will be much easier to restrict yourself to the planned budget and be able to resist impulse buying.
AVOID BLOGS AND FASHION PAGES
If you can not resist a trend or novelty, avoid visiting blogs, Instagrams and fashion sites. “Out of sight, out of mind,” right? If necessary, delete the apps on your phone or tablet and delete the blogs you follow on your Instagram or Facebook. You will see that you will be able to spend less on clothes.
