Discount Summer 2009: Why and How Buy in Times of Crisis

Just a few days that start officially the sales of Summer 2009 (and is that in many stores long ago that discounts or covert balances are the order of the day, without going any further, at Bimba & Lola the “ rebates rebates ” began last Friday), and must begin to think about how well our spending.

Following negative income statements, preparing breakfast and a year marked by crisis and no view to forthcoming recoveries, there is no place for stupid waste or fleeting trends that play us tricks: must be smart buy (if that expenditure and intelligence can go hand actually).

The first thing to do is inventory our wardrobe:

-What we have

-What we need.

For those who have covered all the basics, no need to pull this improvised manual. It must be launched to buy all those things that one would not ever buy at original price. Those shoes impossible, that a day dress or those overalls, pants harem, blazers of beaked sleeves, etc, that we do not dare the rest of the year and that in the form of bargain us unhibites.

The rest is better that it sticks to necessary things, have never why be at odds with trends and fashion.

Become mad at Zara in sales is not absurd but almost, we say that it is not the best place to give free rein to the consumer binge accumulated throughout the year, because at the end one just by buying in a disorderly manner and taking home things that won’t be never.

The best thing is to have clear ideas and start by “ the fat ”: i.e., needs. Come on, if you have a wedding, because nothing better to go first for that dress that you had signed in the typical store that you can not afford normal or wait for the latest downgrade of all because it is at the last moment when one is done with great bargains.

And this rule is worth it if you need unoz shoes, a suit, a bag, an American, a good pair of jeans, or a little black dress, i.e. things of wardrobe.

If one does not need anything in particular, best to conform to the logical thing and make long-term investments: buy things that don’t expire, i.e., timeless pieces, or things that the incoming or next season let us know that “they will take”.

And logistically, you know: get more comfortable.
