NB: Please read to the very end.
So I think I have moved from a slightly less Shallow Shopper to a Savvy one. With recession this and recession that and with me not finding millions of dollars/pounds/euros, we need to be more conscience about what we pay for items. Now before I lead you astray I’m no guru with everyday essentials unfortunately I’m still a bit of an impulse buyer but the spending is much lower.
Example One: Greek Style One Shoulder Chiffon Floor Length Dress.
Original Price : 400 dollars
I paid: €35 (44 dollars)
Amount Saved: 356 dollars
Example Two: Monsoon Noah Dusky Pink Silk Cocktail Dress.
Original Price: €259
I paid: €38
Amount saved: €229
Example Three (Not as impressive but still a good deal I think): Tie Dye Print High Neck Midi Dress.
Original Price: €27
I paid: €17
Amount saved: €10
For Halloween: Giant Pumpkin 1 Euro!!!
I managed to get the items on great discount through Ebay and Adverts.ie and Boohoo.com I bought them all Brand New With Tags so they are not second hand. I can tell you are about state that these items are not a bargain if I don’t need them, but I made use for them.
The pumpkin as you can see was skilfully hollowed out and crafted by my Dad. The Pink dress I wore to my aunt’s wedding last September. The Tie Dye dress I will wear for Christmas ……….. but the Greek Style Dress…… this dress I would love to wear for my Aunt Graces Wedding coming up.
UPDATE: Just bought a new dress yesterday online from iclothing.ie.
I saved 10% on this dress by going to discountcodes.ie and typing in iclothing. There are other sites such as www.myvouchercodes.ie that also give out discount codes. Another thing is iclothing gives a 15% discount to students. There are other sites that give this offer too but it’s not usually advertised well so always check the links at the bottom of the web page.
