Sale Shopping 101

Sale shopping is something that I find to be either the best or worst thing that can happen to someone's wardrobe, guy or girl.
It's when we go into malls, more often than not, with no plan as to what we actually need or want at all.

If you're one of those people who has been waiting for a particular piece to go on discount, or you have a well organised mind, then this is not for you. I commend you on your restraint and your planning.

It's the people who go in with the whole 'Oh, I'm just going to have a look around and see if I like anything.' attitude that I am a bit worried for. They end up going in with half an idea of what they may want and coming out with ten things, out of which two won't fit, three are dresses that they are probably never going to wear and the remaining are a bland selection of things that will end up at the back of their closet. Maybe one or two items will make it but why the remaining eight? That money could have gone to much better use or not been spent at all!

This flowchart will hopefully help those people when they are making those quick dashes to the mall during sale time. Keep looking at it till the thought process happens involuntarily.

An even better way to keep yourself in control is to keep a budget so you know your upper limit and when to stop shopping. Withdraw money from an ATM beforehand - Don't swipe the card. It'll help you more than you know!
