I did a little shopping today and found some really good deal. One in particular was such a good deal that I had to do the happy dance in the aisle when I found it.
How much do you think I paid for this ROXY track jacket?
Here are some my secrets for whenever I go shopping [shh! don’t tell anyone]:
- Always go to discount stores FIRST! [i.e. Ross, Marshall’s, T.J. Maxx, Outlet Malls]
- Go straight to the clearance section, or look for clearance tags only [even though it is already discounted at the discount store you have a better savings if you catch it on clearance…i.e. $1.00!]
- If you see something you really like, have the will power to wait until it goes on clearance, if you never catch it on clearance or the item is all gone the next time you check on it, then it just wasn’t ment to be…something better is probably waiting on you somewhere else.
- When it comes to basic household items, the Do$$ar store is your best friend [only the dollar stores that everything in the store is 1 dollar]
I have been shopping this way for so long that I can’t possibly pay full price for anything.Â My husband gets mad when I put stuff back that I really like or want but isn’t on clearance.Â I physically cannot bring myself to pay full price or full discounted price for it.Â I look at it this way, if I have $20…do I want to buy one item for $20 or get 3 or 4 items for the same amount of money.Â I always opt for the “more stuff for the buck” approach.Â I have also come to find that if I do pay full price for something that it tears up in the same amount of time as an item that I purchased on clearance.Â So what is the reasoning in paying full price for anything?
Do you have any frugal tips you wanna share?
