Your wardrobe should be filled with CLOTHES THAT YOU ACTUALLY WEAR, right? Then, why do so many of us have a closet filled with clothes with tags on them and items that ultimately cause us to feel buyers’ remorse?
One way to avoid all the clutter and feel good about your purchases is to become a purposeful shopper. That means avoiding all those unnecessary impulse purchases. I know, this is easier said than done. Especially when we are constantly bombarded with email alerts notifying us of the latest sales.
So how do we turn a blind eye to the sales and begin to shop smarter? And what does it mean to become a purposeful shopper?
Shopping purposefully means taking the time to really think about what you are buying before reaching for your wallet. After all, you work hard for your money, and every dollar that you spend should be spent on a wardrobe item worthy of your investment.
I’m sharing my ultimate checklist to reach for before grabbing your wallet.
Here are 5 questions to ask yourself before adding another item to your closet:
Will this item “go with” at least 3 other items in my closet?
Does this item fill a hole in my wardrobe, or do I already own something similar?
Will I feel comfortable and confident wearing this item, or am I buying this item because it looked good on someone else?
Is this a quality, timeless piece, and will it last?
Will I wear this item enough to make it a good investment, or am I buying it because it is on sale?
Save this ultimate checklist for the next time you go shopping. It will help you become a savvy shopper and create a closet filled with clothes that you actually wear and feel confident in.
