Bagging a Bargain – be alittle thrifty.

I know that you are all like me and you want to find a bargain. But did you ever get the feeling that some people are better at getting bargains than you are.    If so, than read through the few little tips that I have picked up recently which will hopefully help you bag that bargain.
Follow your favourite stores on twitter
These stores may tweet discounts codes or give you an insight as to when the sale may start either online or in store.  
Compare prices
Compare the prices of your most used products whether it is in store or online.   I especially do this when it comes to make up.  I  can save up to 5euro a pop on my regular make up product by comparing the prices in the store and online.
Seek out discounts special
Remember if you are a student you can get student discounts.  It doesn’t matter if you are a mature student – these discounts will still apply.  Teachers get discounts also and some companies can sign up for group schemes where discounts apply.   So get up and talk to your boss – you never know what discounts that you can get.
Know what you are looking for.
Just because something is discounted doesn’t mean that it is going to be a bargain.  You have to ask yourself some questions:
  • Does it fit ? i.e do you have spend more money on getting the item altered?
  • Do you have accessories to go with it?  Do you need to spend more money buying some more items to go with it?
  • Do you have shoes to go with it? Do you need to buy shoes to go with the dress or outfit that you are thinking of buying.
  • Do you already have something like this in your wardrobe.  Knowing what you already have in the wardrobe is half the battle.
If you any of the answers from the above cause you to spend more money than really it is not a  bargain is it.
Shop off season 
Some people may shudder when I say this.  But if you are looking for those classic items that will never go out of fashion i.e. good denims, plain t-shirt and winter coats – than shopping off season will work best for you.
