Shopping is a woman’s best friend, and there is really no need to wonder why. Some may have all the luxury in the world while others do not. But no matter where one belongs socially, there is no stopping in shopping either for necessities or for pure wants.
When looking for your favourite items, there are many things you need more than to consider. They say that frugal shopping is forever best, but this is not always applicable in all situations. One of the most common mistakes done by shoppers is that they have this tendency to compare prices without comparing the quality of the products. Ladies, if you find yourself caught in the middle of choosing quality and a cheaper price, always choose the former, especially when you are buying your own footwear.
So why choose quality? It’s like buying the cheapest brand of hair dye. Once you apply it unto your scalp and hair, there is really no turning back no matter how bad the results may be. Yes, you were able to save for hair colour but the problem is, your hair became dry, frizzyand unmanageable. Since this is the case, you have to either go to a salon for treatment or buy products that will regenerate your hair. Now tell me, when you saved your few pennies, what was the price you had to pay?
The Shoe Bible
Just like in many other products, there are a lot of factors you might want to keep in mind when shopping for shoes. This is again, to avoid probabilities of losing money just because the product did not work the way you expected it to.
- The Size: Never buy footwear that is either too big or too small. Many people suffer from blisters on their feet just because of wrong shoe size. To avoid this, always fit the shoes before buying and walk with it. If you feel even the slightest discomfort, no matter how beautiful those shoes are, walk away. There is really no point in buying those gorgeous shoes if they aren’t comfortable. You need not only consider quality, but comfort as well.
- The Quality: Now, there is a big difference between buying fake and original brands and I’m pretty sure you already know that. However, not because the shoes are branded, it can already assure you that it’s of high quality. Be an active shopper by looking at even the tiniest details of the shoes. Look for loose threads, especially when you’re buying sneakers. Also, try to figure out if all the materials are perfectly glued together. The problem with buying low-quality shoes is that they easily get broken, and once that happens, you’d find yourself shopping for another pair.
- Know When to Resist: Although it might really be tempting to buy a new pair of shoes, you don’t need to keep a hundred pairs on your shoe closet. Look for what’s more neutral—a pair that can complement most of your outfits, and if the shoe you’ve been eyeing does not fall in that criteria, then better say no.
