Shopping is great, but spending too much money definitely isn’t.
It’s easy to go overboard when shopping, especially when we find a great deal. These tips will help shopping addicts save money.
Go it alone
If you don’t have a friend alongside encouraging you to “treat yourself,” you’ll be less inclined to overspend.
Forget the plastic
Paying in cash will help you see exactly how much money you spend.
Shop when you’re happy
You’re more likely to spend too much if shopping is your response to feeling mad, upset or hungry.
Timing is everything
Map out a good time for shopping, put start and end times on your retail binge, and stick to them.
Sales aren’t everything
Just because it’s marked down doesn’t mean you have to have it. Only buy things you need.
