All shopaholics are thrilling as the sale season’s coming every June or December. After the Mid Year Sale, the “Double Eleven” shopping festival is followed closely there will be a wide range of Black Friday, Christmas promotions, Clearance Sales, New Year Sales, Credit Card promotions, and much more!

Before shopping, in order to save money, reduce wasteful spending and avoid ending up with lots of things you don’t really want, here are the shopping tips to help you:

1. Create a shopping list

Please keep all the items you want in your cart, and list them individually along with the price. You can also download free apps that can help you, such as Google Keep, Microsoft OneNote, Evernote, etc. If you choose online shopping, try to save the items in the shopping cart, it is easy to compare the prices. You can download the apps from Google Play Store or Apple App Store.

2. Cooling off period

Useful shopping tips for impulsive shoppers. What you want is not always what you need. Shortlist your desires and set up a cooling-off period, such as a week. Most impulsive desires decrease after this period and you would have filtered out what you don’t need. Keep in mind though that some impulses may last much longer.

3. Cashback app

Shopping with a rebate or cashback is excellent shopping tips for many shopaholics! Some shopping platforms in Hong Kong, such as RewardPay, Shopback and myWorld, offer shopping vouchers or cash rebates. In other words, they allow consumers to buy the items they want at a lower price or at a higher discount.

4. Set shopping quotas

Impulse shopping could potentially lead to some serious financial difficulties especially if you are purchasing too freely with your credit cards. Be sure to set a purchase quota to keep things within your means. Think it through carefully and set it as a lump sum each month or as a proportion of your pay.

5. Selective purchases
