There is no better feeling than leaving your home each day and knowing that you look your best dressed in the latest fashions which show off your personal style. Well, actually there is a better feeling – having money in your bank account!
If you love the idea of looking your best but also want to pay your rent and eat, below are some tips which can help!
Save with a Text
If you have any type of social media account then the chances are that you are happy to snap a picture of absolutely nothing, add a filter, and then post it for the world to see!
So why not transfer the skill to shopping? The next time that you see a dress in your favorite store, instead of paying full price, take a photo and send it to a group chat of like-minded friends and ask if they have seen it for a cheaper price at another store.
Vouchers and Coupons
Every time that you want to save money on your groceries you use a keurig coupon from Groupon Coupons, so why not use the same technique for your fashion?
Once you see a new outfit on the runway of your favorite designer, instead of paying the price on the tag, take out your cell phone and search for a relevant coupon or voucher. With location-based searches, you can bet that you will find a great deal close to the store you’re currently standing in!
Join the Mailing List
There was once a time when joining a mailing list was the last thing that you wanted to do. This was pure because retailers took advantage of email when mailing lists first started and would send numerous emails each day with absolutely no value. This lead everybody to learn just how to mark items as spam and never see the emails again.
Nowadays, however, the situation is very different. Retailers have caught on to just how annoying emails can be and take the time to craft emails purpose designed for their customers. For example, if you purchase a pair of jeans and join a mailing list then you can expect to receive an email with offers for matching blouses and shoes.
Check out Online Forums
If you have ever wondered just how fashionistas always seem to be at the right place at the right time for a sample sale, the answer is online forums. Many times, retailers and designers will use these forums to advertise small and boutique sales to a selection of their most interested fans.
Of course, these forums are also a great way to meet like-minded fashionistas who can also help you to save by sharing their tips and tricks.
When it comes to looking your best on a budget, the above tips are great ways to help you look your best without needing to decide on whether you want to buy a new dress or pay your rent.
