Pro Mall Tips, Episode 2

Typically when you're at the mall you're there to buy stuff. Sometimes, though, you end up buying stuff you don't even need or want. This episode is aimed at keeping you from doing such a thing.

  1. Never ever stop at a stand in the mall. These people are almost like cons, they can and will trick you into buying the useless crap they have. They'll reel you in with free samples and make you feel good about yourself then all of a sudden you're paying for not one but two of the same item and wondering how it happened.
  2. Go to the mall with a game plan. Unless you're going to hang out with friends and window shop you need to know what you're in there for. You don't want to walk around thinking to yourself "oh that's nice I could really use that" at every store in the building.
  3. Shop clearance. You know why the shops always have 50% sales? Because no logical person is going to buy a 70 dollar pair of jeans. So in a few months they need to get rid of the excess items that no one bought and they usually end up going half off. This is when you swoop in, find your size, and walk out feeling good about your purchase for once.
  4. Don't be impulsive. Impulsive buying can get you into a lot of trouble. You go into the mall with a 100 dollar spending limit and you walk out knowing you just charged your credit card to the max or drained your checking account. Again, know what you need, just because something looks amazing doesn't mean it always will be.
Hope this helps you from going into a financial crisis. Have fun shopping!
