Shopping Discounts for the Summer
Say goodbye to the nightly winds and the rains because summer has officially started. You just want to trade your cardigan for a t-shirt or sleeveless top and your ankle boots for slippers or sandals. It’s too hot to use your wardrobe during the rainy season – you’ll sweat buckets – so you’re thinking of buying new clothes. Not to mention you can use a new pair of shorts for your upcoming beach trip.
However, buying a whole new wardrobe is costly and sometimes unnecessary. If you must spend on non-necessities, one way to curb your expenses is to look for sales and promos. For today’s Deals of the Week, here are shopping discounts for the summer, so you can get a new look for the new season.

Offline Sales

Until March 18, you can get up to 40% off on Under Armour products in the Bench Tower, 30th Street, BGC. Dri-fit shorts for around Php 1000? It’ll be hard to get your hands on that kind of deal once the sale ends!
Bazaars are another option to buy more for less. During this month of March, there are numerous bazaars around Metro Manila where you can buy trendy clothes for a fraction of those from retail stores. Here are 3 bazaars where you can buy clothes to beat the summer heat:

New Season, New Look

Shopping, especially for new clothes and shoes, can give you a high, but be careful not to go overboard. To avoid this and overspending:

  • Prioritize which clothing items you need more than others,
  • Set a strict budget for shopping,
  • Purchase discounted items only, and;
  • Use your credit card to receive cashbacks.

By doing these, you’ll enjoy buying something new but at the same time keep your finances in check.
