I enjoy shopping like the next person. However, I believe in smart shopping and saving coins. So before I swipe or hit confirm I practice three tactics.
First: To be a smart shopper you have to ask yourself some tough questions. Do I really need this? How is this piece able to complement the pieces in my closet? Asking yourself these questions can save you from making regretful purchases.
Secondly: If you're not saving money while shopping, then sis what are you doing? Before you complete your purchase search for coupon codes that you can use in combination with the sale price. More importantly, go through ebates to make all your online purchases and some in-store as well. Ebates allows you to get cashback on your purchases and at the end of each quarter, you'll receive a check of your earnings.
Lastly: Try thrifting. Thrifting enables you to create the look you want without compromising on quality or style. Thrifting is not what it used to be, you can actually thrift online now with stores such as thredup Below I have linked ebates and thredup for you to check out if you are interested.
Until next time stay chic!
