Buy Stylish Products – the Thrifty Way!

There are so many stylish items out there, just waiting to be purchased. From amazing dresses to the latest eyeshadow palette, it’s enough to make a shopaholic’s heart race – the only problem is, it all costs so much!

Thankfully, there are ways you can indulge your desire for fashion, without blowing your bank account to smithereens. Here are some useful tips.

Get your hands on fashion products, without spending too much
·    
     Set a limit. This part isn’t so fun, but it’s a necessary task. Sit down, armed with a calculator and your bank account details, then work out how much you can realistically afford to spend each month. Write that figure on a post-it note, then stick it somewhere prominent. You’re not spending more than that, regardless of how gorgeous that skirt is!

·         Sell your stuff. Now’s the time to haul out all those clothes, accessories and cosmetics that you never use, and figure out what you could sell online. It’s a great way to raise cash, then reinvest it into something fabulous.

·         Shop around. By all means, browse in your local high street. But try to avoid impulse buys, as you might be able to find the exact same item for less, if you look online. Shopping online requires a bit more effort, but it’s rewarding when you manage to save money in the process.

·         Set up a swap-shop. Find some like-minded thrifty ladies in your neighbourhood, and set up a swap-shop. Bring along the clothes that you no longer wear, and swap them with other people’s garments. It’s a brilliant way to totally transform your wardrobe, without spending a penny.

·         Browse the auction sites. Sites like Ebay are excellent for finding bargains. Here’s a top tip – when you see something you want, don’t bid until the very last moment. This stops other bidders from raising their bid, and means you’re more likely to get the item for less. There are other good auction sites out there too, with some specialising specifically in clothing; so it’s worth looking around and seeing what you can find.

·         Buy quality copies. Always be careful about buying designer-inspired clothing or beauty products, as some companies don’t operate in an ethical way. However, there are some great online stores out there, offering high-quality versions of designer products, for a fraction of the price. Copycat Fragrances is a good example if you’re in love with high-end perfumes.

·         Search for special offers. There are some very appealing offers out there, if you’ve got the patience to go hunting for them. For example, some cosmetics sites offer lots of freebie products when you spend a certain amount. Other sites have exclusive one-day sales, which provides the perfect opportunity to snap up some bargains.

·         Learn to sew. If you’re a creative type, this is an incredible way to breathe new life into your clothes. Consider doing a short sewing course, as it’ll provide you with the necessary skills to alter garments, and turn them from tired, dated items, to something unique and fashion-forward.
