Tuesday, October 23, 2007


I was tagged by Tammy from Mom Knows Everything and since I always enjoy doing these meme's . When it came to shopping tips this one was a must do, I could use some shopping tips myself and with the Christmas shopping started I thought this would be fun! Here we go...see what we can learn.

It’s very simple. When you receive this tag, copy the whole list and add your own shopping tip to the bottom and pass it on.

Wear comfy clothing when you’re shopping. You don’t wanna fuss with too many laces and buttons when you’re trying clothes on.

Choose stores offering some kind of reward program, e.g. purchase points, rebates or store coupons. Knowing how the program works and when to use them will save you a lot of money in the long run.

Always ask for a discount or bargain, especially when you pay cash for big purchase like furniture and electrical items, you will be surprised how much lesser you have to pay.

Buy in bulk or from the hypermarket. Hypermarket like Giant and Tesco has greater offer than places like Jusco or Parkson. (I’m referring to household stuffs)

Think again if it does really makes any different without having that, and if no, it means you don’t really need to spend on that.

Wear comfortable shoes when going for shopping spree. Closed toes and high heels won’t give you the joy of shopping. If possible, wear sneakers or sandals like Birkenstock.

When you go shopping, it doesn't mean that you must buy something. If there's nothing to buy, just window shop. You get to see new products, learn new marketing strategies and you may see new opportunities.

Don’t shop for groceries on an empty stomach. Pushing the trolley through the supermarket aisles while you are hungry will just make you buy more than necessary. After all, wouldn't all the snacks look extra tasty while you are hungry?

If you take children shopping with you try to bring something that will keep them amused. Bring a small backpack with a few of their toys, books and snacks. Having a child whining that they are bored, they want a toy or they're hungry will only make your shopping trip stressful.

I was going to say the same thing as Mom Knows Everything...But another way to make your shopping experience so much more enjoyable is to hire a babysitter. The kids don't see the fun in shopping and if they are anything like my oldest they will look for ways to make it miserable so you will want to go home. Boy this can be some stressful...Why put yourself and them through it when it can be much more enjoyable for everyone to leave the kiddies at home!Rantings of a Woman

I am going to pass this shopping tip meme onto Jocelyn at Hip Mama Blog, Anne at Virtual Journal, Petula at It's a Woman's World and Matt to get The Males Perspective on shopping tips.
