Fall Shopping On A Budget- Three Money Saving Tips

Shopping tips


Fall is here and I’m prepping my wardrobe! My main goal while shopping this season is to stay within my budget.  One thing that I’ve learned about shopping and staying within budget is that you have to be strategic.

Below are three (3) shopping tips that you can use to help stay within your budget!

1. Set your limit.

Decide what you are going to spend ahead of time, so you are not doing calculations to see if you can afford the two pair of boots that you have fallen in love with.  Setting a budget before you shop can help prevent you for going overboard and having buyer’s remorse.

2. Take an inventory of all the fall pieces in your closet.

This requires patience and will power!  Patience to try on all of your fall clothes plus accessories and the will power to let some of them go! 🙂  After inventory, you will know exactly what fall pieces and accessories you already have in your closet.  This process will help you create a foundation to build upon.

3..  Create a shopping list.

After you have taken inventory, it’s time to create your shopping list!  Personalize your list with must have items for the season.  This list should reflect pieces that fit your lifestyle and budget.  It will also help keep you on track while shopping and help with preventing impulse purchases!

Before you take your next trip to the mall or visit your favorite online boutique, implement these three (3) tips to help you save both time and money! 🙂

Happy Fall!

Hello ladies!! One fashion rule of thumb is that every woman should own a little black dress (LBD).  I totally agree, however, I think that every woman should also own a little red dress (LRD).  Red is a great alternative to black.  It’s vibrant, flirty, and sexy!! It’s something about the color red that exudes confidence.  So, whether you are going out on a romantic date or a night out on the town with your girls, the little red dress is prefect!

P.S. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner!  Check out the chic little red dresses below for inspiration!
