I recently got contacted by Jessica the Community Manager from www.raise.com who asked me to create a post about how I handle my money when it comes to shopping. Do I tell myself I don’t need yet another dress? Do I shop around to find the best deal? Or do I just go crazy and splurge on everything in sight? I think it’s safe to say I’m a bit of a splurger!
Take today for instance. I finished my second year of university and got a first for my blog assignment! YAAY! So to celebrate the start of my four month summer the first thing I did was head straight to the shops to spend a little too much money on the new items listed above. Some are things I actually needed such as the concealer and sunglasses, but the rest are little treats, although a lot of them have been on my wishlist for ages.
Even though I do love to splurge, what I do try and do is ensure that I save as much money as I possibly can when I do shop. Such as thinking through what clothes I already have before buying, and ensuring I make the most of discounts and offers, but some times it’s so hard to save when there are so many amazing offers out there! And this is where Raise comes in.
If you’re a lover of online deals, subscription treats and flash sales then you’re not alone. Us bloggers all love to get our hands on the newest beauty products as soon as we can, and we love treating ourselves to subscription beauty boxes and taking advantage of online offers; but have you considered what you’re actually getting for your money? Are these supposed deals actually saving our pennies? Take a look at this blog post written by Jessica to find out what you’re actually spending your money on and how to stop, or at least cut down on, your spending!
Raise.com is an US website that buys and sells giftcards. It is in the process of becoming interntional and I look forward to when it does so that I can benefit from their offers and save myself some cash!
Lots of love,
