Folk wisdom says - saved, then earned. How and where to buy a quality product at the lowest price? This is especially true if the budget puts you in a rigid framework and, unfortunately, high costs can not afford. But there are different ways and tricks about them and discussed today.
Overstock (for products and services are not covered)
The most common and well-known method - to buy things on seasonal sales, also called Salem (in English the «sale» - discount). As you know, at the beginning of the new season in a new collection of clothing stores supplied. When the season comes to an end, on the clothes from the new collection start acting discounts, initially 30% of the original price, then 50% and the final sale - up to 75%. Thus, for example, if a thing is worth 100 conventional units, you can buy it for 25.
Please note, during sales, some shops cunning. For example: the price of goods without sales was 100 conventional units store announces 50% sale at the same time makes donatsenku 30%. Thus, the price of the goods on sale under such conditions would be 100-50 = 80 + 30 conventional units. And 50% of the declared sale really is only 20%.
In the early days of sales in stores no room to swing fall - buyers crowd, and on line at the fitting room to spend a lot of time. In order to save not only money but also time and nerves, I, a few days before the expected sales, calmly choose what I want, I measure, sometimes write product number, and then, when the sale starts, simply take your favorite thing pre-matched in size and buy it.
Outlets - these are stores that sell clothes and shoes stale goods, which remained unsold in shopping centers during sales, or who remained in the warehouses of the manufacturer. Are these stores are usually on the outskirts of large cities and the prices are the most pleasant for the buyer.
