Save Money When You Shop.

Wednesday, 20 January 2016

I am a massive fan of looking around and finding things for cheaper. If I believe it is a trend that I will only wear once or twice I will not splash out the moola! Same goes for home-ware...what is the point? I do fall into the 'trend trap' now and again but who doesn't eh...but here are a few tips I use to avoid that as much as possible!

Basic ranges - every shop has them. A section where the clothes and shoes are simple, but staples. H&M do a really good basic range but I have been loving Primark's recently. Recent purchases included some really comfy (aka baggy) tops for £6 and these amazing snake skin print slip-ons which cost me a fiver! I have been loving the whole snake skin print boot trend I have seen all over Instagram but when I tried them on I just felt like a pimp or something. So, snake skin flats will do the trick!

Sales - They are booming in January. Every shop is wanting to get rid of Christmas/Winter stock which means massive reductions. In the sales I do pick up a few clothing items but I mainly head towards the jewellery stands (especially the ones in Topshop). Items are usually reduced to a couple of quid so I stock up until the summer sales come around.

Amazon - It is a really good site for finding dupes. I have been eyeing up this Asos Circle Clip for a little while and although it isn't a lot of money, I knew I could find it cheaper on Amazon and I did here for £1.78! Same for my silver Casio. I got the gold one for my 17th birthday (£30 in store) a few months after that I bought the silver one for around £12 online.

As for homeware, Ikea is amazing for cheap plants...but everyone knows that anyway! Another good place to look for home-ware pieces is at the supermarket. I got this 'P' candle plate for around £2 at Asda. I use it to place a few jewellery items on and you've got a chic, trendy piece to place on your desk.

  1. I've pretty much switched to shopping on Amazon for a lot of little things because the prices are just so much better. I'm lucky to have an Amazon Prime memebership too so it's just a win win all round! =)
