Be aware of the timing of sales

It’s a good idea to think about the times of the year when you will get the best deals. At this time of the year, the prices tend to be hiked up as people are starting to do their Christmas shopping. However, if you wait until just after Christmas, between the 26th December and right the way through to January, you will see lots of sales starting. At this time, retailers will be aware of how well they’ve done over the festive period, and many will be frantically dropping their prices in order to raise their profits.

Make a List

Prior to beginning your sales shopping, you should always make a list of everything you are looking for. It can be too tempting to rush in head first and buy items which you

Why Go Garage Sale Shopping?

Why Go Garage Sale ShoppingYou ask, “Why should I go to Garage Sales and buy someone’s items they don’t want?”

I will tell you why I go. I go because I can find almost anything I want.

I buy all my baby gifts at Garage Sales. I just bought a gift for a baby girl. I bought 2 cute outfits, they were brand new with the tags still on them, and I also bought a few baby toys, and again they were new.

I have bought a lot of Christmas gifts. Everyone in my family has received gifts from me that I bought at Garage Sales. They would never know I bought them at a garage sale. I always make sure the items are new or in great condition.

When I buy a gift I buy most of them under $5.00. Here are a few of the gifts and items I have bought for myself…diamond earrings, diamond necklace, double oven, washer and dryer, name brand clothes, entertainment center, 3 desk, leather chair, lamps, name brand candles that have not been burned, gas logs, fiesta ware.

Why upgrade your engagement ring?

How well do you recall the day or moment you got engaged? Is it a wonderful memory or a bit of a blur? No matter whether it was five years or thirty years ago, life will have changed a lot since that moment. You might have moved home many times, got different jobs, had children but you’re still together through it all.

Most people think an engagement ring has to be forever but if you consider how your lives have changed and your love grown, why wouldn’t your ring evolve too? There’s no reason not to update your ring and many reasons why you might want to:

Your budget has changed

A lot of couples get engaged when they’re young and their finances are less than stable. This often means the choice of ring is limited to what can be afforded at the time. If your budgets have grown over the years, you might decide it is time to upgrade to the ring you always dreamed of. Halo Cluster Diamond Engagement Rings are available from Compare the

Tips to Consider For Your Short Sale Shopping

A quick look at short sale might be so inviting but be careful before you even think of buying it. There are certain issues that you need to unravel regarding the condition of such property. Should you consider buying a short sold home, find out everything you can about the potential home. Here are some important considerations you need to know before looking at short sale. They might be of great value to you when you begin your shopping for such kind of house.

First, check if the price is reasonable enough or very low. You must be aware that what you see in the price tag is not actually the ceiling price. They only put that to invite more buyers because multiple offers give the seller the opportunity to select and come up with the best bid. So, be open with the possibility that you are not the only potential buyer for that property and the hard part is that it would be hard to make an offer because you have to compete with the other buyers who could give higher bids. So, the best option to do is check the house’s real market value and

Ways to Shop and Remain Rich

Shopping is like love it can be a pleasure and a pain. A shopping bout blows boredom, worries, and stress away. And, quickly puts a smile on the face. Sadly shopping a temporary high can lead to severe problems like un-payable debt or addiction.

Shinny malls filled with shops provide an escape from the realities and drudgeries of life. It is but a temporary relief from depression, anxiety, and loneliness. It will never grant love, inner peace, or happiness. What happens is that you spend money and buy something that will go into the deep recesses of a shelf never to be used.

There are ways in which you can shop without going broke:

1. Make a financial plan for expenditure. Create boxes or envelops for each item like milk, school, utilities, groceries and so on. Never remove money from one and think I will put it back later. Discipline yourself and you will be surprised how smoothly your life goes.

2. Lock up all credit, debit, and ATM cards that have large limits. Set small limits on all credit cards, freezing the amount of money available will help you limit your spending.

Shopping During The Sales

During the time I have spent as an image consultant I have seen the contents of many men’s and women’s wardrobes. Very often the items that stand out are the items bought in the sales. Why is that the case? Well usually because something happens to us in the sales when we are faced with the bargain of the century. We imagine ourselves a different person, leading a different life and purchase the item that we think we will be wearing in it. Only to discover some months later that our lives haven’t changed, we’re still the same person – and we’ve not worn that sales purchase.

I can remember doing this myself in pre-image consultant days when I decided that a summer weight aqua two piece skirt and top was what was missing from my wardrobe – and my life. It fit beautifully, more to the point it was a wonderful bargain, so despite there being a loud floral print shawl adorned with purple and yellow pansies attached to the top which wasn’t removable, I bought it. Any of my friends at the time could have told you that I wasn’t a pansy woman but that

Beautiful Savings – Guide to Surviving Sample Sales

I’m sure everyone is familiar with this feeling: you’ve been eyeing the most gorgeous pair of Tory Burch heels, with its gorgeous silhouette and sleek style. But alas, your heart skips a beat when you look at the price, as you replace them on the shelf and silently affirm “One day… I’ll save enough to have it.” Well, thanks to the numerous sample sales in New York City’s fashion district, “One day” may be much sooner than you think! The one thing that shopaholics (such as myself!) like better than shopping are bargains! And bargains are always beautiful! Here are some tips on scoring heart-stopping deals with prices that won’t give you a heart attack.

Research, Research, Research!

The wealth of information available on the internet is amazing! Websites such as Topbutton and DailyCandy post information on sample sales in various cities.

Got some extra time during the day? Prominent shopping areas, such as New York City’s garment district may have people advertising sample sales for specific showrooms. Take a stroll in these areas and be on the lookout for someone handing out fliers to such sales. Once you’re at the sale, place yourself on

How to Save Money at Garage Sales

Garage Sales are a great place to find bargains. From expensive china to scuba gear, you can find everything, and anything you want, at a garage sale. Here are some strategies to maximize your shopping experience and help you get the most for your time and money.

First, know in advance what you are shopping for. When you shop for clothing, have a list of exactly which clothing items each family member needs along with their measurements. Carry a soft tape measure with you. Since items can’t be returned from a garage sale, you don’t want to make any mistakes. When shopping for an item for your home, bring an small sample of the color you are looking for. Out in the bright sun, colors may appear differently so having a color swatch helps.

Equally important to knowing what you’re looking for, is knowing how much you want to spend. Before you go garage sale shopping, know the retail price of each item you are looking for. This information makes it easier to spot a deal. Since it’s so easy to get caught up in the buying spirit, have a dollar amount in mind for what

Skincare Sale? – Or Are You Better Off Buying On The Internet?

Shopping for a skincare sale might not be a good idea. While all of us like to save money, some things are a waste, no matter how little they cost. If a product is ineffective, there is no point in buying it.

A product that causes an adverse or an allergic reaction will cost a lot more than the price tag indicates. You might have to make a trip to the dermatologist’s office.

Cosmetic companies will not cover medical bills related to an adverse reaction, because it has traditionally been left up to the consumer to protect his or her own health. Even trying to get your money back on an unusable product can be difficult.

Most companies will not accept returns on any product that has been opened. It is particularly hard to get your money back on a discounted item. Only the best companies guarantee your satisfaction.

Another issue to be concerned about with cosmetics is shelf-life. Discounted items may have been sitting on some retailer’s shelf for years. Regardless of the kind of preservative included in the product, there will be a buildup of bacteria after a certain length of time.

What is a Private Sale?

A private sale is a process through which a buyer gets limited stock or sample fashion merchandise from a brand or designer directly and offers it to the buyer at a very competitive price. This process has been going in Los Angeles and New York where a lot of people reach these private sale shops in order to get their hands on low priced samples and stock. Sometimes these samples of clothing and shoes are available only in a certain size which makes it a little limiting but there are a number of other accessories like hand bags and jewelry in which there is no consideration of size. Other stock might also be released from these designers at random and these items are priced much lower than the usual price tags.

A lot of people have now opened up such private sale websites online where the consumers can get even more discounts. This is because while a local requires such additional charges like location rental and utility bills, in an internet shop there are no such considerations and the customers can get their favorite products at a rate that is even lower than the local shops. This

Make The Sales Work For You

When the banners go up for a sale at one of your favourite stores, it is very easy to be drawn in to thinking that you are going to make a killing and get a whole new wardrobe at a fraction of the price. Yet when you come to it and actually try to find yourself a bargain that you are actually going to want to wear, it’s not so easy. But there are ways to make sure that you get want you want, at the price you want to pay.

There are a number of reasons why stores have special promotions. They can be used to quickly move last seasons stocks in time for the new seasons lines or they can be used to encourage you to visit the store so that while you are there you will continue to browse and buy further items that are not on sale. Or they can simply promote the name of one retailer over another to get more brand awareness. Whatever the reason for the sale, if there is an item you want and the sale is on then it can be increasingly frustrating when you can’t find what

The Do’s and Don’t’s of Sales Shopping

If it seems too early to be thinking about the January sales, think again! In this bleak financial market, the sales will be starting much earlier this year as retailers try to tempt us to part with our money. So what is there to think about? How do you plan for the sales? If you usually wander around them aimlessly picking up a few ‘bargains’ here and there, things that you don’t really need and later regret buying, read on…

1. Avoid the shops that roll out rails and rails of clothes stock from previous seasons. If no-one wanted them in Winter ’07 or ’06, why would you want them now?

2. Avoid high fashion items that are on their way out. Instead look for good quality investment items that won’t date such as cashmere sweaters, leather jackets and wool coats. You’ll be able to wear them for seasons and seasons to come and will be proud that you got such a good bargain.

3. If you come across an item that you really love but can’t afford in this season’s collections, don’t despair. Keep an eye on the price tag throughout December to see
