November is always the best season for shopaholics with black Friday adding to the frenzy!
You can buy anything online. From daily necessities such as frozen food, vegetables, fruits to clothes and electrical appliances.
The thrill of unpacking your delivery can be addictive. Some people may become less rational. But actually, it is not only wasting time and money on items they eventually will return.
Be happy to buy, but at the same time, be smart consumers. Develop these 5 habits and you can be a frugal shopaholic!
- Vouchers & Promo codes
With online shopping, you can buy what you want with a simple click. However, when it comes to paying, it’s never just a click!
Always check the online shopping platform to get the latest information and discounts. Use vouchers or promo codes to save more money. This is what a smart shopper should do!
- 24 Hours Waiting Period
Are you an impulsive shopper? Impulsive shoppers will definitely buy something without consideration once they see something on sale or something that looks good. This is also the main cause of household clutter.
When you are eager to do something, add it to your cart first and give yourself a cooling off period. After that cooling period, you will realise whether you really want that product.
- Comparing the sellers
One of the advantages of online shopping is that you can have a quick check on the different stores and prices.
Before placing an order, always compare the prices and quality from different sellers, and even check their customer reviews to make sure it’s worth buying.
- Use debit cards
Although the use of credit cards is convenient and fast, you will easily get into card debt by maxing out the credit card. If you don’t want to get into debt, you have to plan your finances!
It is safer and more realistic to pay with a debit card and use the limits in your bank account. It avoids the risk of debt. In addition, you can also transfer your budget to an e-wallet to ensure that you do not exceed your shopping budget.
- Storage space
What to do with it after shopping? Storage space is often the biggest problem for shopaholics. It’s annoying when your house is full with your shopping goodies.
Giving yourself extra space allows you to go on a shopping spree without compromising your living space and keeping your life free of clutter.
