Dear Shopaholic

-Let’s Go Shopping-

Tip #1
NEVER SHOP IN A RUSH
ALWAYS CHECK THE SIZE IN THE CLOTHING & TRY ON AT THE STORE
-Take your time when shopping. When you rush you overlook things. You find something you want but you don’t think it is your size, so you pass on it. It could just be on the wrong sized hanger. Take the time to look carefully. Check the label size IN the garment.
-You may need a 4 but the label says it’s a 6. And it looks like you might be able to fit it. What’s a 6 to one designer could be a 4 to another designer. IF YOU TRY IT ON AT THE STORE you’ll know if it’s “your” size 4. This will save you time in the long run by eliminating your need to have to return it.

*Sometimes things get hung on the wrong sized hanger AND/OR misplaced in the wrong size section. Don’t miss out. Check everything if it interests you.

Tip #2
WASH, FOLD & DRY [OH MY]
Make sure you wash and dry properly. You might think you can’t fit your outfits any longer because you’ve put on a few or dropped a few pounds. But actually you might have unknowingly shrunk or stretched your garments. It’s very important to read the labels and care instructions accordingly. Otherwise, you’ll be getting rid of your favorite threads much too soon.

Tip #3
IF YOU WANT IT, MAKE IT FIT
If you see something you want to wear but it’s too big (and you reeeeaaaallly want it),
DON’T PASS ON IT because it’s too big without considering this:
If it’s too big, you still have a chance to own it depending on what it is. You may be able to alter it if it’s too big to make it fit you.  Don’t miss out!!!

Tip #4
AVOID BECOMING A HOARDER
Most people shop til they drop but only wear less than half of what they buy. Then when it’s time to get rid of things, most people will say “I can’t get rid of that, I haven’t worn it yet.”
Therefore, you should wear everything you have in your closet at least once. Even if it’s just to go check the mailbox or take out the trash!!!

Tip #5
THE COMEBACK DELUSION
If there is something you want and IF you have the money to buy it at that time, never leave it to come back for it later. You have to remember you are not the only one that will see it or want it. Chances are, it will not be there when you come back.
Tomorrow is not promised and neither are those shoes….
