From a person who doesn’t love spending a large amount of time shopping at the mall, I have put together major requirements for when I do to save some time.
- Dress comfortable. I could never buy something without trying it on, and there may be a few outfit changes before finding the right one. Dress so you can easily take off and put back on your clothes.
- Do your makeup and hair before. This may sound silly to some, but I’m a big picture kind of person. There definitely has been moments when I didn’t buy something because I looked terrible that day. This way, if gives you a better idea of how you would look when you actually wore the outfit.
- Buy what you need and only look for that specific item(s). I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone shopping for a something specific and walked out with something else. Keep your eye on the prize! Make a list if you need to.
- Give yourself a budget. For some people, budgets can be tough; and realizing how much you can spend will defer you from window shopping and making unnecessary charges to your credit cards.
- The modern Fanny. I was never one to wear a fanny pack, but this one… I’d wear everyday. Give your arms some freedom while searching through racks and holding bags by wearing this amazing leather fanny.
