As a self-confessed cheapskate and a trying-hard frugal person, I try to stick to my budget every time I’m out shopping for our home, my husband or myself. I admit to doing impulsive shopping on occasions, though. But then, I still make sure that I get full value for my money.
The idea of saving while shopping thrills me. Promos like buy 1 take 1, up to 70% off and the likes appeal to me like they’re some sort of pampering services waiting to be enjoyed. It must be due to the fact that I always challenge myself not just to stick to my budget but if possible, spend less than what I intended to as well.
This budget thing is easy to do and can be applied in almost all kinds of shopping. You just have to be disciplined enough and find ways on how to get as much savings as you can get. For instance, if you’re planning to buy a digital piano, don’t just canvass at traditional shops that sell musical instruments. Look up shopping sites that sell the same stuff online as they normally offer huge discounts on their merchandise. There, you could definitely save on Digital Pianos. See my point?
Saving while shopping is fun. I won’t get tired of doing it as long as I have the means to do it.
