Spring is coming and that means that floral patterns and bright happy pastels are on their way to store racks everywhere. After a cold, bleak, winter a fun shopping trip is in order. Here are a few tips on how to keep your spring time shopping frenzy in check.
Know Your Sizes
If you know your clothing sizes before stepping into a store, you will spend less time in the fitting room. It is also unlikely that you will buy an item of clothing that is ill fitting. It’s also less likely you will fall in love with a purchase that isn’t in your size, because you will walk right by it on your way to finding your size.
It’s also helpful to have the sizes of your family members on hand. If you find something that they may like, you will know if it will fit them or not.
When shopping for clothes you want to make sure that nothing distracts you from the clothes you are considering buying. Noticing the forest growing from your legs or the squid you have in a head lock can and will distract from the clothes you are attempting to pick out. This is particularly true when you are trying to buy items such as swim suits, shorts, skirts, or tank tops. Nothing will look good if you are focused on hair being where it shouldn’t be.
Know Where You Are Going
Knowing which stores you want to peruse is key to a healthy shopping experience. If there are a number of stores you want to go to, is there a strip mall or shopping center that has them all in close location? Is it close to where you plan to eat lunch? At the very least you can map a driving route that will cost you less gas money.
