I know we're supposed to have thunder and lightening in the next few days, but wasn't this weekend glorious? I don't know about you, but I have that a bit of summer sunshine really helps put me in the mood to get things done. I know, it's tempting to sit outside in the sunshine and believe me I did plenty of that too - but something about the warm weather makes me less likely to want to hibernate and more likely to get stuff done. This weekend I had a big sort out of my wardrobe, clearing out items I don't wear anymore and generally having a good sort out.
This has led to me wanting to buy new clothes, but also lots of new home accessories to store things better and generally make my home look more pretty. This is great, but I don't really have the budget to splash out on everything I want, so I really need to be savvy when it comes to shopping!
Saving Money Shopping Online
One of the best things I have found online is looking for online vouchers and deal shopping online.There are a few websites that make it easy to find lots of deals in one place and make life easier when it comes to shopping. In fact I often find that browsing these websites can give me inspiration on what to buy - they often have items listed into categories - so for example, you can browse the "home" section and have a read through what is available for the home and get some ideas on what I need, but didn't know I did!
Other ways that you can save money online are shopping sales and also keeping an eye out for voucher codes. Voucher codes are a really good way to save money, even if it is just something like free postage or 10% off - it all adds up and makes a difference!
Buying What You Need
One of the best pieces of advice I can give you is buy what you need. We can all get tempted by things that look like what you need, however if you are just buying something that is going to be stuck in a cupboard or not used for more than a few weeks, have you really made a saving?
