SHOP SMART

True Love - - FINANCE -

Mchunu and Mat­seke sug­gest that we con­sider the fol­low­ing be­fore head­ing out for that much-needed re­tail ther­apy:

Bud­get. Putting to­gether a shop­ping list will elim­i­nate temp­ta­tions of buy­ing more than you had in­tended.

Shop around. Check prices from var­i­ous stores and on­line plat­forms to score bar­gains and cheaper items.

Con­sider sea­sonal deals. Most re­tail stores stock sea­sonal items which they mark down af­ter each sea­son.

On­line shop­ping. Most South Africans are still in­tim­i­dated by this but not only is it con­ve­nient, but it can also turn out to be cheaper.
