Shopping for the perfect Christmas gift can be a stressful affair! You have a ton of things to do, and between all the planning for the family gatherings, there is hardly enough brain capacity left to be thinking of what to put under the tree. In addition, you do not want to spend a fortune on an unpleasant handbag.
Handbag lover or not, it’s something most of us use on a daily basis. The right handbag will surely be put to effective use! To save money on luxury bags, consider the tips on this list.
#1: SAVE CONSISTENTLY
Leading up to the holiday shopping spree, you must cut down the unnecessary purchases. For instance, you can eliminate your daily Starbucks run to save up to S$2,000 a year. Giving yourself a home-brewed morning drink can satisfy your cravings and save your wallet. You can even open a savings account to help you budget better.
#2: STEER AWAY FROM TRENDS
There are so many fast fashion items that go out of style immediately. Who cares if you do not wear it? It was on sale for S$30! Well, think about your purchases next time. Adding investment pieces to your collection can help you create a staple handbag collection.
#3: STORE WISELY
Forgo your lazy inclinations to toss your items in your bag as storing your recently purchased bag can be one of the most important steps to maintain the newness of your luxury item. Most designer bags come with free dust bags – use these! Do not forget to store your liquids in containers to avoid spillage.
#4: SHOP AT CONSIGNMENT STORES
Consignment stores will often carry products at discounted prices. These products might be last season’s handbags or something that is selling as much anymore. However, you may not always be able to find the product you are looking for.
#5: SHOP AT ONLINE AUCTIONS
Online auctions provide you a fantastic opportunity to snag a new product at a much cheaper price. You just need to be patient and diligent in your searches and keep an eye out for the best auctions.
#6: WATCH OUT FOR DISCOUNTS AT DEPARTMENT STORES
Local department stores can help you save money on high-end, luxury handbags. Most stores will have various sales year-round, which they will announce virtually through their websites or newsletters. Stay updated!
