What Are You Looking for?

Sometimes it’s difficult to find sizes during a sale. If you have your eye on something specific, you can call up the closest store and ask them if they have it and if they will hold it for you. That way you won’t have to worry that it will be gone by the time you make it to the store.



If there's something that you need, you should go get it as soon as the sales start. If you want something that you can live without, but would like to have for experimental reasons, look for it at the end of sale season when it may be even cheaper.


The Right Bag

Take a small shoulder bag with you so your hands are free to rummage through everything.


Buy Right

Buy things that you know you would wear, not what you think you MAY wear. Try imagining what you would pair it with, when you would wear it, where you'd wear it etc. If you can come up with at least 3 ideas, then buy it. If not, put it back down.


Easy to Try on

If you plan on trying things on, it would be more convenient if you wear something simple and easy to take off and put on. For example a pair of tights, a t-shirt and slip on shoes.



Never take too many clothes into the changing room. Never hog a changing room. Remember that others are also waiting. If you want to try something else on, wait in line again.


Speak up

If you see make up or a tear in a shirt that you really adore and you believe you can fix it, tell the sales associates. Usually they will give you an additional discount for damage.

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

Promila I agree, i've seen a few things like that lately so i don't always buy everything i try on - rather annoying!

If it's a great end of season sale on things you'd lov but would never pay 300$ for a blouse that's not likely to go out of style by next season grab these kind of things, just leave enough time to get thro the checkout , so you're not freaking with impatience because you Have to be Somewhere !

Great article :) Really helped

Keep an sharp eye usually sale items have some defects or u can say not good fitting.

If in willing to buy 100 items, sorry! I'll be hogging up the dressing room all day. To suggest someone wait in line multiple times is absurd.

Stacy, that's what I'm talking about! I would never waste time standing back in line. It's not being rude, it's first come first served.
