You’re busy doing everything for your family and now it’s time to holiday shop for everyone. Oh my, how do we do it all? Each year, my husband works out of town during the best holiday shopping time which leaves me to do it all if I want to get great deals, all the while, I’m also having to make sure everything run smooth at home too. So by the end of it all…I’m tried, and I haven’t even shopped for myself!!
We all love to shop for ourselves, especially when there’s great deals on holiday merchandise, right? Well, I do…and I fully intend to take some me time to shop for myself when my husband returns home!! Therefore, I have thought of 6 ways I learned to rock shopping for myself during the holiday season and wanted to share them with you!!
6 Ways to Rock Your Shopping Trip
Don’t Feel Guilty
I know I know, you will…but try not to. You’ve been busy taking care of everybody else, so you deserve some me time and you deserve to spend money on yourself!! Really, you do.
Know Your Limit
You’re the only one who knows how much you can spend. I know, we all like nice clothes and like to look good. When I find a piece that I really like that might be a little out of my budget, I may go ahead and buy it and put it together with something that’s not expensive at all. For example, buy the beautiful expensive sweater and pair with either leggings or jeans. Mix & match is key and certainly okay in my book.
Find Your Style
Are you classy, casual, hip or perhaps a little of all three like me? So you’re shopping for shoes and you find a pair you like. You text a friend to see if she likes them. She doesn’t, now what? Nothing, just be prepared for answers you may not want to hear. If you like it, buy it. If you want her opinion, then go with it, but just make sure your style isn’t hers!!! This actually happened to me just yesterday. Stick with your style or you’ll regret your purchase when you get home.
Take a Break
You’ve been shopping all day and you’re tired but not ready to go home. Take a break and try a ZonePerfect Perfectly Simple protein bar to give you a bit of energy or that boost you need to keep on shopping!! With less than 200 calories and high in protein, Perfectly Simple is a great nutritional choice for us while we shop all day!! I’ve now tried all flavors, and though I love chocolate, this Bing Cherry & Almond is my favorite. Perfectly Simple protein bars are my choice for a healthy snack while I’m shopping!!
Ask for a Coupon
Seriously, if you don’t have a coupon, ask the associate if they do. You never know unless you ask. And…if you’re brave enough, ask if they will give you a discount. This also happened to me, but vice verse. I was at a department store looking at UGGs and the salesperson wanted so desperately to sell me the pair I was trying on. He tried to think of a way for me to get a discount or a coupon, but sadly UGG just won’t budge on their prices if not on sale already. But he did try.
Take a deep breath before you return home and know everything will be okay.
It’s time you…
Go ahead #FeelGooder and grab a coupon for $1 off on any Perfectly Simple protein bar.
