How to Shop Wisely and Spend Wisely : Shopping Tips

It is time of the year when you have a couple of festivals approaching along with some long weekends in the calendar. So that is the time you can plan a trip too. It is one such time now and yes when I have plans to shop a lot for the festivals, a friend’s wedding and also a trip we have been planning since a month. I know the shopping list will be really really huge but I do have a budget constraint ! That is when a friend suggested me to try shopping via CupoNation and I will have to tell you how it helped me to stick on to my budget.

Shop Wisely and Spend Wisely

I started with listing down all what I wanted to buy for all the above mentioned occasions. At the end, the list had everything from traditional wear (for the wedding) to jeans and tees (for our trip) and a pair or two of comfortable shoes for the trip again. I was sure it will be hard to find all the above in just one place and I might have to look for different online portals for my varied needs. 

To start with I opted for some not so expensive shoes which I could use only for the trip and toss it away and there was an amazing deal at CupoNation that looked as if it was created just for me ! Yes all the footwear at Zovi were for just Rs.499. I had a budget of Rs.2000 for 2 pairs and I bought 3 pairs for Rs.1175 and saved Rs.800 already !

The same way I picked up half a dozen of tops and 2 pairs of pants for just Rs.2000 with Myntra coupons. If you have been following me in Instagram you would have already seen my Vero Moda top that I had got for just Rs.499 !!

Once I was almost done with all my shopping I was casually checking out the other offers and guess what ? I was lucky enough to spot an offer with Yatra coupons which was Rs.8000 off on International flights. I was jumping out of joy, as we never planned anything for our tickets till then and this was definitely a sweet surprise. I just spotted a handful of offers based on my requirements and I am sure you would find the ones that would help you save more !

Overall, while shopping through CupoNation, for the festival I managed to save 50% on my total bill and the same while picking an anarkali suit for my friend’s wedding. For our trip we managed to save almost Rs.12,000 !!! This is definitely a huge amount and I highly recommend you all to stop by CupoNation before you decide to shop something online. If not all the time at least when you have a huge shopping list and yet you have a budget to stick on to !

With the money I saved, I have decided to spend a part of it during my vacation and rest to gift my parents for Diwali. This way every penny you spend is justified and in spite of buying so much you can still be guilt-free.

Happy Shopping :)
