Saving money is something you should consider even if you are still young, you never know what will happen, but I also know that we ( yeah, that includes me too ) have endless wants. People always have basic needs, endless wants but limited resources. In my last post about How to save money , I already gave you 5 tips which worked for me and helped me to be and to stay in a plus at my bank account. So here are 6 more tips!
I. DELETE YOUR SHOPPING APPS
Not only will you save some space on your phone but you will also stop buying random stuff on Asos, Amazon, Etsy and co.! I often catch myself browsing through those shopping apps when I can’t sleep or when I am bored at university and then even buying stuff I don’t even need.
II. USE COUPON CODES
If you love shopping then you should always look for a coupon code before buying something. Just google it before you buy something, I swear I must have saved hundreds of euros! MORPHE for example has tons of coupon codes you can use from you tubers like MannyMUA, Nikkietutorials, Jaclyn Hill, etc. There you can save 10% on MORPHE orders. Also a lot of Instagrammers have coupon codes for online clothing or accessoires shops like misspap, valor watches, Daniel Wellington and lanalashes – here you can use the code vnsswlf from Vanessa Wolf on Instagram to save up to 10% !
III. DON’T BUY THINGS YOU LIKE IMMEDIATELY
Do you know that moment when you see something, you buy it and then you regret it? Yeah, me too. If it is something expensive, don’t buy it immediately. It is better if you sleep over it a night, if you still want it, then go for it. If I wouldn’t have slept over a few things like a MK bag or 120 pair of nikes I would now own several MK bags and probably more than 120 pair of nikes haha.
IV. ORDER ONLINE WITH FRIENDS
If you order something from far far away like U.S. in my case, you often have to reach a minimum amount of money so you can have free shipping or you have to pay expensive shipping or customs duty or else. If you share your order with your friends, both of you will get happy and none of you have to pay shipping costs or at least not that much.
V. SHOP ON SALE
If you are disciplined and strong enough, shop only when the desired items are on sale! Of course there are two risks: Either the item is not available anymore or the size isn’t available anymore. But on the other hand you can still say that you have saved some money because you couldn’t buy it.
VI. LOOK FOR DUPES
Sometimes it doesn’t have to be the original- cheaper versions of certain products can do the same jobs. It’s often the case that you just pay for the name. Look for dupes on pinterest and read reviews, you may find some great dupes for MAC lipsticks for example or right now the liquid lipsticks from Kylie Jenner.
I just recognized that these tips are all based on shopping – but I still hope it helps you somehow and you liked it!
