Tips for the Winter Sales from Models Direct
Before you leave the house to hit the sales, you should know exactly what you’re looking for and how much you can spend. First of all, figure out how much you’d be happy to spend, and then decide how much you can really take with you. Having a strict budget will stop you from overspending. If you’re the type of person who puts things on credit card habitually and sometimes loses track, take cash with you and leave the cards at home!
To be able to identify the real bargains you’ll need a reference point in terms of prices. We have all seen shops with constant ‘sales’ on, but the items were never, and will never be, the full marked price. Retailers use this tactic to make things seem like even better value so don’t be fooled into making impulse buys before checking prices online.
You can use your phone to search the bar-code or the brand and style online. Doing this means you won’t be duped into thinking you have a real bargain and then going home to see the same item on the net for less! If you’re on the hunt for a new look for a photo shoot, perhaps with an eye to get into fashion modelling, agencies like Models Direct can often give guidance. It’s too easy to get bogged down trying to compare prices between stores and online, so if it starts getting stressful just remember your spending rules and remember what you needed to buy. If you stick to the rules, you won’t find yourself unloading bag after bag in the lounge and wondering what on earth you were thinking! The returns queues are at their longest after sales because too many women fall into this trap. Also remember that you often can’t get a cash refund for discounted items and might end up with a lot of store credit that you don’t really want.
